Top ten comebacks for fake friends

Check out what to say to a FAKE FRIEND. | www.ishouldhavesaid.net

We’ve all met a fake friend, someone who’s nice to your face and then turns around and stabs you in the back. It is hurtful when you see who your friend really is, someone who is only around when it’s convenient for them.

Fake friends expect you to drop everything and cater to their needs. They take advantage of others and don’t have your back.
Shakira was a flight attendant based in the Middle East, who flew long haul around the world. She was happy because she found out she had a four-day trip to Bangkok and her boyfriend was going to be working on the same trip. She was looking forward to spending time together since they both flew long haul and it wasn’t something she got to do very often.

She had heard rumours that Adam used drugs, but he told her that it wasn’t true. They had a great time in Bangkok, shopping in Patpong, and going to a night market where a lot of the crew shopped. The flight back to the Middle East was uneventful. When they landed, Adam put his passport carrier bag in her purse and asked her to hold it for him. She didn’t think anything of it. When it was Shakira’s turn to go through crew customs, she was pulled away and taken into a room. Customs opened the passport folder Adam had placed in her purse and there, to her surprise, was a large packet of heroin. Shakira was devastated. Adam didn’t care about her at all. He was a fake boyfriend looking for a drug mule.

What happened was devastating for Shakira. She was put in prison in the Middle East for a week. Adam told the police she was guilty. The only thing that saved her was her negative blood test while his blood test was positive for heroin. Finding out that someone close to you is a fake friend can be beyond hurtful and have devastating results.

Here are some great comebacks for the traitor, who only acts as your friend when they want something from you.

What to say to a fake friend

  1. Life is too short for fake friends and crappy wine.
  2. Fake friends are like shadows, always there at your brightest moments. But nowhere to be seen during your darkest hours.
  3. Revenge, I’m too lazy. I am going to let karma mess you up.
  4. Some people come into your life as a blessing as others come as life lessons.
  5. True friends will always find a way to help you. Fake friends will always find an excuse.
  6. Honesty is better than sugar-coated BS.
  7. If you’re absent during my struggle, don’t expect to be present during my success.
  8. You never know the quality of someone’s personality until the road gets rocky.
  9. I hope that bus you threw me under swerves and hits you on the sidewalk.
  10. Revenge, I’m too lazy. I am going to let karma mess you up.

    1. I used to have a BEST FRIEND she was so NICE to me then I saw her on my friends group chat calling me a bitch and saying that im ugly.So I made a comeback that she will regret me saying “When im walking home I hope I see your bus hitting your home :)”

      1. I had a nasty girl who I called my best friend.she talked behind my back and I told her.
        Fake friend:”what are you looking at”
        Me:the reason why double doors are made.

    1. There was this girl who I thought was my friend and then she started leaving me out of day outs and stuff, she also talks about me behind my back and I never did her any wrong, she’s jealous of me so she takes it out on me. Anyway recently she’s been acting all friendly and literally ASKING me to like and comment on her recents- like umm no, you did me wrong, don’t be expecting favours smh. Does anyone have any good comebacks for when she asks me to like her posts? Or just for her in general?? Ty xx

      1. when she asks you to like her posts say:

        “i dont even like you so would i like your posts?”

        maybe that will make her shut up..

    1. so true!
      I have been there all my life. i thought i ha a lot of friends but then i figured out that their parents told them to be my friend…

      life’s hard and painful we all can relate.

  1. When you said you had my back, I didn’t realize it was a place to store your knife!

  2. “If I wanted a bitch I would have bought a dog”
    “No wonder your late in the mornings, spending to much time putting makeup on two faces”
    No one asked for your opinion”
    Insult – your shit
    Comeback – your face is shit but I don’t complain!

  3. There has been a lot of drama going on lately and a lot of bullcrap and a lot of fake ass friends this past week and this just sums up what i have to say to them

  4. Bitch: ur ugly
    Me: look at yourself
    Bitch: come up with a better comeback
    Me: how can I come up with a comeback of I never left?????

  5. My fake friend is annoying and snobby. Even her friend says she is fake. Dhe acts like she is in charge of me. She even told my chrush I liked him just to embarass me!!! My real friend never told anyone my crush since 1st grade, and I am currently in 6th. She only told him because I moved and I asked her to. She is a real friend.

  6. People are bound to be fake, but there’s a limit that you want to get hurt. And those idiots reached mine quite soon. So yeah; no friends, walk alone, and get your typical happily ever after. I’m not pessimistic, but this is just my experience, and I don’t want another person to go through the same pain I did. Anyway, great page!!!!

  7. Theres reasons why they talk shit behind u. Move on and leave em behind. You shouldnt e the one feeling like u lost a friend, they should be feeling it. Real eyes, realise, real lies

  8. tell me which one is the best:
    “my name must taste good because it’s always in your mouth.”
    ” is your drama going to an intermission soon?”
    “calm down. take a deep breath, and then hold it for about twenty minutes.”
    “when karma comes back to punch you in the face, i wanna be there in case it needs help.”

  9. now these are just comebacks mostly. but enjoy reading these.
    – if you interrupt someone mean on purpose and that person tells you something about it, then say ” i’m sorry. did the middle of my sentence interrupt the beginning of yours?”
    – if someone tells you you’re stupid, then say “is that right? and what have you accomplished in your life that makes you Einstein?”
    – if someone talked you you behind your back, act like you don’t notice they’re talking in front of your face, and then at the end say “oh, you’re talking to me? i thought you only talked behind my back.”

  10. So one time in school when i was in 10th grade. i had this friend but she was liek complete opposite. We were like “besties” for 2 years. I forgot how we became friends anyways. But like she started like dropping me for this popular girl. and like she just ignored me and got really irritated everytime i tried to talk it out. i decided to ignore her so i found myself a new bestie. about a week later she came to me sayin that popuar girl made rumors about her. She asked if we coudl be bets friends again. i said i rather eat dog shit than talk to u. lol
