View Full Version : Did You Really Just SAY That?

I cannot believe the things that come out of people’s mouths!

I was showing a coworker some pictures from this past weekend and my boyfriend was in a few. He’s definitely on the heavy side…but obviously I don’t care or I wouldn’t be dating him, right?

My coworker actually said out loud: “Wow, that’s kinda funny, you lost all that weight and got a fat boyfriend!”


My response: "Yeah, you know they say opposites attract. That must mean your husband has a lot of tact."

Uh, wow--can't believe someone would say that. Love your response--LOL!

My response: "Yeah, you know they say opposites attract. That must mean your husband has a lot of tact."

:rofl: What a PERFECT response!! Some people should have a cork!!

I agree, perfect reponse! Some people really need to stop and think before they speak.

That response made my day!

what was her response? Good comeback.

08-13-2010, 03:48 PM
OMG, what a great response. Wish I could once be that quick! I am curious, did you shut her up, or did she sputter?

08-13-2010, 04:04 PM
Great response, I'm proud of you!

08-13-2010, 04:06 PM
Wow. Just wow....& a huge hi-5 to you..TnP!

There is no way I'm quick enough to come up with such a fabulous response. You go, girl!!

08-13-2010, 05:08 PM
Awesome Response!!!

08-13-2010, 05:12 PM
HAHAHA love love your response!!

What a rude thing for her to say!

08-13-2010, 05:13 PM
LOL! What a great comeback! I wish I could come up with clever things like that on the spot... aw well :p What a rude woman though!

My response: "Yeah, you know they say opposites attract. That must mean your husband has a lot of tact."

OMG what a GREAT comeback!

All throughout life we will hear and "say" stupid things....

great way to move past this one kiddo!

08-14-2010, 01:46 PM
I agree with everyone else - perfect response! That's the type of thing I wish I could think of in those situations.

I could come up with a witty response like that, but it would take me three days! Good for you!! Weight is one thing people think they can make nasty comments about, still. I have a neighbor that has made weight cracks about my ex, my son, given me a "look" (you know that, "god you are big" sneak-look), yet she gets so drunk often that she falls and hurts herself, and picks up strangers at the gas station and brings them home for sex, so I guess some people just like to feel better about themselves and cheap shots are all they have!

Love your response. What she said was very inappropriate and rude. I wish I could come up with witty responses so quick, but I always think of them after the whole thing is over. lol.

I hate when people make assumptions about what the people in your life must look like based on you. I had a coworker say she was surprised my dad was an average guy bc she pictured him to be a big guy... with the unspoken part being because I'm big. Bleh. People are idiots sometimes.

09-08-2010, 08:49 PM
HAHA!! That's great!!! Some people should really learn to think before they think.

09-23-2010, 05:53 PM
Classic!! :) Your response was awesome.

When I was getting married I showed a few people from work my hair trial and one lady kept going on how ugly my hair style was and yada yada yada. I told her too bad, because I liked it and I was going to keep it. She wasn't very nice about it! But she is known for not having a filter on her mouth and it gets her in trouble often.

I LOVE it!!!
