Off topic: one-line put-downs
Thread poster: José Luis Villanueva-Senchuk
Have you ever been in a stressful situation, where somebody is getting on your nerves and all you want is 1 line to get them to go away. These useful expressions should solve that problem. ...
Well, aren\'t we just a ray of sunshine?
Not the brightest crayon in the box now, are we?
Don\'t bother me. I\'m living happily ever after.
Do I look like a people person?
This isn\'t an office. It\'s Hell with fluorescent lighting.
I pretend to work. They pretend to pay me.
You! Off my planet !!
Therapy is expensive, popping bubble wrap is cheap! You choose.
Practice random acts of intelligence & senseless acts of self-control.
I like cats too. Let\'s exchange recipes.
Errors have been made. Others will be blamed.
And your cry-baby whiny-assed opinion would be...?
I\'m not crazy, I\'ve just been in a very bad mood for 30 years.
Sarcasm is just one more service we offer.
Do they ever shut up on your planet?
I\'m just working here till a good fast-food job opens up.
I\'m trying to imagine you with a personality.
A cubicle is just a padded cell without a door.
Stress is when you wake up screaming & you realize you haven\'t fallen asleep yet.
I can\'t remember if I\'m the good twin or the evil one.
How many times do I have to flush before you go away?
I just want revenge. Is that so wrong?
I work 40 hours a week to be this poor.
Can I trade this job for what\'s behind door #2?
Too many freaks, not enough circuses.
Chaos, panic, and disorder - my work here is done.
Earth is full. Go home.
Is it time for your medication or mine?
Aw, did I step on your poor little bitty ego?
I plead contemporary insanity.
How do I set a laser printer to stun?
I\'m not tense, just terribly, terribly alert.
When I want your opinion, I\'ll give it to you
