Have you ever had someone say a silly or nasty comment to you, and at the time you can’t come up with a good comeback? You are so shocked by what they said that you are rendered speechless. Later on, you replay the silly comment in your head, tell your friends all about it, and you stew about what you should have said. This happens to most of us, and can put us off-kilter, out of sorts and shaken! A rare few are blessed with quick wit and can come up with quick answers off the top of their head, for the rest of us, I created the “I should have said” site where you can vote for the best snappy comeback from multiple answers.
About 5 years ago, I took my nephews to the Planetarium, my oldest nephew who was 7 commented that a picture of the moon was ugly. Another boy there came up and complained to me that my nephew said that the moon is ugly. I replied to the boy that he is entitled to his opinion. The boy ran off and told his father, who then stormed over and started yelling at me in front of 30 people. He said, “How dare you talk to him like that, you’re disgraceful, I can see why you’re not married, your husband must have left you!” Everyone was staring at me, I honestly didn’t know what to say. I was so pissed off, I went home and I kept thinking about what I should have said to the verbal bully. A couple of weeks later I got the idea to start this site. My vision is that this resource will help people both feel OK to verbally deal with bullies and become confident trying some effective snappy comebacks.
This site is not for bullies, it is for verbal self-defense to give people the words to protect themselves.If you need help with a something, submit a question for Bryn and she will help you find an appropriate comeback.
