TOP 10 HELPFUL COMEBACKS I LEARNED IN GRADE SCHOOL

1. Oh yea? Who's gonna make me?
2. I know you are, but what am I?
3. It takes one to know one!
4. You're not the boss of me!
5. Who do you think you are, my MOTHER?
6. I can if I want to!
7. Big deal!
8. Who cares!?
9. No duh!
10. I am rubber and you are glue. Whatever you say bounces off me and sticks to YOU!

Grade school? I use those at work!

This is my VERY favorite list.

You forgot,

"So?"

Jerri said...

You are a list virtuoso, Carrie my dear.

Jerri said...

Just thought about this one again, Carrie. Wouldn't it be "I am rubber"? Cause the bouncing's got to happen off of me to stick to you. Right?

This really matters. NOT!!!!

My own personal favorite, "no duh", continues to serve me well on a daily basis.

Classics and they haven't changed one word!

Nancy said...

by the way... playing catch up from a reading/ writing respite and reading your posts in reverse. I'm so impressed that you can be filled with enlightened inspiration from a great Master and still belt out "I'm rubber you're glue..." It is what makes you uniquely you and what keeps us reading!!

My daughters have recently discovered "Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me". Too bad it's not actually true...

Julie Christine said...

Great expressions! I especially like the last one--it has a lot of truth in it. This is a good one to teach kids not to take the hurtful words of others personally.

Kim said...

Awesome. How about: "I couldn't care less."

Or a more recent classic: "What-ever!" (Said with hands facing out, forefingers up, and thumbs touching to form a big fat W)

What made you think of this? So funny.
No-duh!

I, too, would love to know what triggered this - especially on the heels of such an intensely spiritual experience. You are indeed the Queen of Lists!
