Have you ever been sitting around hours after a conversation, discussion, or confrontation and realized you knew exactly what to say after all?
It can be frustrating to have the perfect comeback or comment and not be able to use it because the moment has passed (just ask George Costanza) – which is why those moments when we see someone really come up with something perfect in the moment are the best things ever.
These 17 people were definitely on the ball with these responses, so please enjoy!
17. It’s brutal but honest.
Most of us wouldn’t be doing anything else.
16. You can do anything once.
15. No two ways about it.
Being able to admit that is an admirable trait!
14. This made me snort.
Because it definitely wouldn’t be me.
13. It’s a good thing I got that confirmed!
I couldn’t have been 100% sure without the geologist.
12. I can’t tell if they’re being serious.
But it’s funny either way.
11. It’s good to have goals.
They sustain us in the tough times.
10. There’s one in every room.
And honestly, what would we do without them?
They just couldn’t resist.
8. Hard to argue with that one.
Not exactly in the spirit of the question, but.
7. For the non-Americans.
This one has killed me.
6. I hope this helps!
Sometimes sarcasm comes through on the internet loud and clear.
5. It’s a good idea.
But perhaps not applicable in every situation.
4. That’s the first step, anyway.
It’s important to not leave anything out.
3. Maybe not even nicely.
Asking might be enough.
2. I could think of better words.
They would probably make me hungry, though.
1. We really are all the same in the end.
It’s inevitable, so might as well accept it!
I mean, was I right or what?
