Top ten comebacks for a know it all

Check out our great comebacks for annoying KNOW IT ALLS. | www.ishoudlhavesaid.net

We have all met them—the guy or girl who won’t stop talking or offering unwanted advice and thinks that they know it all. Whatever you say, they know better or claim they did it better.

There is nothing worse than getting cornered at a party by a know-it-all, who offers all sorts of unsolicited advice. They discount other people’s comments and suggestions because their advice is better.

Jason attended a Meetup group to meet new people who own online businesses. He was hoping to meet new people who were at the same level as he was or further along the path.

Jason was introduced to someone at the event who told him that having a blog wouldn’t work and that it wasn’t possible to make money from blogs anymore. He laughed to himself because he was making money every day from his blog. He could tell the know-it-all was argumentative and didn’t want to waste his energy debating whether or not blogs could make money, so he changed the topic.

Jason shared that he was interested in becoming an Amazon seller. The know-it-all told him that it would never work and that you can’t make money selling on Amazon and don’t waste your time trying. The funny thing was the know-it-all didn’t have an online business, and he was acting as if he was an expert on the topic when his results showed otherwise.

If you don’t want to listen to the know-it-all warble on, try one of our clever comebacks below.

  1. When someone pretends they know everything I usually say this:
    “I’m going to ask you 2 questions that may seem a little dumb. But they will help me prove a point. 1) Do you know the number of sands on all the combine beaches of Hawaii? 2) Do you know the number of hairs on a fully grown male Tibetan Yak? I can safely assume you don’t, so stop pretending you know everything.”
    Though not exactly what I say but their’ya go.

    1. I go with, to toxic male types:
      How many birds are in the world?
      How many bees in a beehive?
      How many dwarves in Snow White?

      ‘sfunny, you don’t know crap about the birds & the beres, but you know all about the fairies!

  2. Better to remain quiet and have people think you’re an idiot than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.

  3. Why have a brain when you have an arse. I mean thats where all your words come out of right? Wonder why it sounds like crap.
