Clever comebacks if people complain you’re so slow

Check out what to say when people call you SLOW

Urban dictionary defines slow as, ” a person who is not particularly quick in their mental processes.”

Whenever you try something new you are going to be slower than someone who has been doing something for a while. When you learned to drive it probably took a while before you could drive without spending too much time thinking about it. You probably drive around your town now like Lewis Hamilton, the famous race card driver with ease.

A girl I knew was new to cooking, she made her first cake using whole wheat flour. The cake took forever to make and turned out to be a disaster, it could have been used as a paperweight. Usually, whole wheat flour is used for muffins, not cakes. Now my friend whips up a cake in no time and makes birthday cakes for all of her friends, using white flour of course.

    Do you always do everything slow?

    Me: Depends, your mom likes it slow, your girl likes it slower.

    Why do you drive so slow?

    Me: Because alcohol impairs my ability to think quick. Officer: Do you know why I’m pulling you over tonight sir?
    Me: Was I driving to slow, my apologies the speed limit sign was blurry! Idk how they expect people to read that?
    Officer: close! I stopped you bc you drove over the speed limit sign!
    Me: Oh! Ha! It needed to be replaced anyway couldn’t be read! Officer: Please step out of the vehicle sir.
    Me: ugghh ok..
    Officer: I need you to perform a sobriety test. Stand on one foot holding your other 6 inches above the ground, then count…
    Me: whoa whoa whoa your honor your losing me here! So stand on one foot and count my other one to six while holding onto the ground?
    Officer: I’m going to have to place you under arrest sir.
    Me: Why would you place me under a dresser?

    Me: Oh.. yeah I shouldn’t be on the road… Haha I’m waisted, but in all fairness it’s not my fault really. I was basically roofied with alcohol!
    Officer: is that so? I’m sure you was?
    Me: no but look how long I’ve distracted you?! Just enough time to sober up. Let’s do that test now please..
