Now that so many of us are working from home, stressed, and scared - the need to tell someone to f*ck off but in a nice way is greater than ever.

The person you're in isolation with who is a 6AM noise-machine? Yup. Co-worker who has a bad habit of asking "one last question" 13 times in every meeting? Yup. Neighbor running a pressure washer hooked to an insanely loud generator for 8 days straight, 14 hours a day? Oh good lord yup.


So one Reddit user wanted to know:

How do you say "f*ck you" politely?

We are going to put these into effect immediately, because we have some serious "per my previous email" energy going on towards certain people right now (looking at you, neighbor with the pressure washer) and we really need to get it off our chest.

The Ultimate "Apology"

Giphy

You can up the ante with "I'm sorry to hear that you feel that way" like you aren't even sorry they feel that way, you're just sorry that you have to hear about it.

"This is what I say when I just really want someone to hate me."

Not My Problem

I must that admit that although I never found the balls or the situation to actually say that to someone I keep "That sounds like a you problem" as a mantra in my mind at times.

- One_Lazy_Duck

I hate "that sounds like a you problem."

Well no crap Sherlock, you're making MY life miserable, not yours.

Backhanded

"I admire you. You don't let your shortcomings get in the way of your confidence."

- FalstaffsMind

Honestly, I thought this was a compliment at first. This is a backhand compliment beyond compare.

- Skelehoes

So backhanded it was a roundhouse kick.

Per

"Per my last email..."

- JibberJabber777

I always read that as "B*tch, can you read?"

You Deserve It

One of my bosses likes to say "I hope you have the day you deserve" to rude or sh*tty people.

- pleasesurpriseme

I was involved in a near-miss at work because this woman was using her phone while she was driving. She walked into the Control Room and said "One of your security guards nearly hit me, tell him I'm sorry" and then made a big thing of mentioning it every time I saw her.

"Oh, I think you're the guy I pulled out in front of, I had a momentary lapse of concentration..."

So when she was leaving and everyone signed her card, I wrote "I hope your new job is everything you deserve!"

The Christian Version

Giphy

I love the Christian version of this. "I'll pray for you"

- TheSupremeGrape

God, I think i'd feel more respected if someone dissed my mom for 15 minutes straight then if a "christian" said that sh*t to me.

Input

"Thank you for your input."

- enym

Funny story- I was the only woman at an assessment centre out of 10 candidates. There were multiple centres on different days and there were 20 positions available. Roughly 380 candidates at assessment overall.

In our group exercise you could almost feel the testosterone coming from these banker-type guys. For 20 minutes of this 45 minute exercise two of them just would not shut up and let anyone get a word in edgeways... anyway we finally get on to the task and it's the whole 'you all have 1 project, defend your project and why it should be funded' and we all agree mine is the most beneficial for this imaginary community. These two guys start to try and debate it again at which point (don't know what possessed me) I come out with the words "Thank you for your continued input gentlemen. If nobody has any relevant points I suggest we conclude now".

I got the job. Those two twats did not

They Say

"With all due respect, you are as they all say you are."

This line is bound to f*ck anyone up.

- a1001ku

Oooof, I feel that!! That would ruin somebody!!

- SamTheStud

Oh, this is cruel. I like it.

- funkaria

Biblical

If you want to get Biblical, "know thyself."

- AdmiralAkbar1

This one is creative. It's the only one I haven't seen the last few times this was posted. I like it.

"Oh bless your HEART!"

Source: Southern

Normally used as "bless her/his heart" when totally not talking sh!t about others but a direct "bless your heart" can be extremely effective too if you nail the sickening sing song sweet tone.

Governor Asa Hutchinson said this to my mom like two years ago. She's still mad about it.

- SashaWoodson

Do you have something to confess to George? Text "Secrets" or ":zipper_mouth_face:" to +1 (310) 299-9390 to talk to him about it.

There's something seeing a person litter that drives me up the wall. I remember being a kid and being explicitly told to hold on to my trash and not just throw it in the street. As a kid, I distinctly remember being made fun of for not just throwing the bag of chips I'd just eaten or an empty soda bottle into the gutter.

I can't imagine doing that. Why?! We truly treat this planet as if we have somewhere else to go.

After Redditor pnrddt asked the online community, "What small action immediately makes you dislike a stranger?" people shared their observations.

When you're in the market for a slew of very specific facts that all fall under the same general theme, the internet really delivers.

Forget streamlined public health capabilities and revolutionized human communication, the true beauty of the internet is all the random, barely useful information you can find when a bunch odd people decide to assemble and swap info.

Working in a doctor's office means helping people when they're at their lowest. Sometimes, that leads to wonderful moments when the patient is thankful for all the advice and care you provided. Other times, it means taking something out of someone's bum.

Turns out, that second one happens a lot more than you might think.

I love movies. The cinema has long been a savior of mine and has given me some of my greatest inspirations. But being an avid film watcher has also made me quite the critic. I can always tell when a movie is worth the money to see in theaters or wait until it's on basic cable with commercials. The signs of mediocrity abound, and sometimes they aren't that difficult to spot.

Redditor u/fjv08kl wanted to know what is obvious about mediocre cinema by asking.... What are some subtle 'red flags' that tell you a movie is not worth watching?
