Our household’s had a number of ups and downs this week, so! On a enjoyable notice…
What are your low-stakes insults? This quote from Justin Boldaji made me chortle:
After we have been rising up, my siblings and I’d complain to our mother about numerous annoying folks at college or work or ballet follow. Her reply? “They will take a flying leap!” And her backup? “Inform him to go soar in a lake.”
In the meantime, my dad, who works within the automotive business, will get irritated by dangerous driving, however as a substitute of honking or shouting, he offers the offending driver a withering…thumbs down.
One other genius “insult” occurred a number of years in the past, when Toby, Anton and I have been visiting pals in Austin. Toby at all times lords his age over Anton — he’s three years and one month older — and he realized that it could drive his little brother loopy if he referred to as him, “Buddy,” as in “Nice job, buddy!” It was the funniest, most benign factor to say, however Anton obtained SO aggravated, rightly so!
What others do you’ve got? “My husband began saying ‘get a life’ a yr in the past,” commented @caseyremsing. “As soon as it turns into a part of your vernacular, you’ll discover it applies in any scenario.” Problem accepted.
