Do you have a favorite saying that you like to bust out when things aren’t going well?

Maybe you say it to make yourself feel better…

Or maybe it’s to put the minds of your friends at ease…

Whatever the case, most of us have one.

And here are the go-to sayings that folks on AskReddit like to use.

1. Sure it is.

“This is good for the plot.”

2. Just go with it.

“I always say “It’s just a part of the character development”.”

3. Now do you feel better?

“On the bright side, at least we didn’t try very hard.”

4. LOL.

““Let’s start again, but this time with feeling,” is one of my favorites.”

5. I love it!

“In my kitchen when someone drops a plate or anything its mandatory for someone to tell them “that doesnt go there”.”

6. You’re lying to yourself.

“This is going really well.

Exactly what it looked like on the drawing board.


7. Just brilliant…


With a neutral expression, and unemotionally.”

8. And now…

“And now for something completely different…”

9. WTF?

“Honestly, what the f**k are we doing here?”

10. A classic!

“I picked a hell of a week to stop sniffing glue.”

11. We all did.

“I saw that going better in my head.”

12. Hopefully.

“Mission failed.

We’ll get ’em next time.”

13. We’ve all said this.

“You’ve gotta be f**king me.”

14. That’s different.

“I like to pause time with a loud record scratch and say “yup. That’s me. I bet you’re wondering how I got here…..””

15. Yes!

“Good enough for government work.”

16. One of my favorites.

“It is what it is.”

17. This is why…

“”This is why I prepare for everything”.

My mom thinks I’m crazy because I prep for everything even my own d**th.

But when something goes wrong guess who thought about it ahead of time.”

18. This is funny.

“Learning experience incoming!

Take cover.”

19. An old gem.

“That’s just how the cookie crumbles.”

20. Absolutely.

“Worse things have happened on better days.”

21. Can’t escape her.

“We are in the presence of the f**k-up fairy.”

22. You got that going for you.

“At least I’m wearing pants.

That’s become like sort an in joke with myself.

I’ve always h**ed shorts, and when I was a kid, if I was having a bad day, as long as I was wearing pants I’d remind myself that it could be worse: I could be wearing shorts.”

23. A fine mess.

“This another fine mess you’ve gotten yourself into.”

24. I’m gonna use this.

“That was rather unfortunate.”

25. What a day!

“It’s a beautiful day for it!”
