Brilio.net - Even when you are already being positive and well-behave all the time, you will still meet people who say rude or inappropriate things to you. Either they mean it or not, the words hurt you and you find it offensive. It can be a nosy questions like “why are you not married yet” or “when will you have baby”. Some people can really don’t care about how their words could affect you and it may be their habit to be nosy so sometimes some wake up call can make them rethink about how they should choose their words to speak to other people.

Levo.com had compiled from many sources some comebacks you can answer to those inappropriate questions according to the situation or relationship you have with that person. Assuming their remark to you is not in a good way, your relationship with them must be casual or even not close at all. If you don’t mind losing their friendship, here are some things you can copy so at least you teach them some lessons:

1. Excuse me, but did you actually just say… (and just summarize whatever they said to you in your own conclusion that points out how rude it sounds to you and make the other person realize it).
2. So sorry, I wasn’t listening. Can you repeat that?
3. Right. (this can really stop the discussion right away).
4. Well, I think we’ve reached the end of this conversation.
5. Whatever you say.

6. You don’t really expect me to answer that, do you? (the ultimate way to avoid answering question is by asking another question).
7. That’s the most pretentious thing I’ve ever heard. (then laugh!)
8. You’re kidding, right? Hold on. You are kidding, right?

9. Ouch. Did you mean to be that rude?
10. Help me understand why you think that was an appropriate thing to say—and why you think I should answer you.
11. Thank you. We’re all refreshed and challenged by your unique point of view.
12. My apologies. I don’t speak English (or other language you are using).

13. It’s none of your business.
14. Why do you want to know?
