What to say when people call you stubborn

Great replies if people call you stubborn

When someone can’t manipulate you and get their own way they are probably going to call you stubborn.

Stubborn people believe that they are right, and they refuse to change their opinion. The thing is you could be right and a bunch of idiots could try to persuade you to take their point of view. If you can’t be influenced, it just means that you have a strong mind and are not going to swallow the kool-aid of the masses.

Next time someone surprises you by saying, “You’re so stubborn!” use one of these clever comebacks on the complainers in your life.

Vote for what do you think is the best comeback.
