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..."

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."

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.

Biblical

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

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.

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.

How you approach life's many trials and tribulations can say a lot about who you are. However, many of us don't necessarily learn some lessons so easily.

Life is complicated. It's messy. Few, if any things, go according to plan. On top of that, sometimes the way we handle our relationships or our obligations might not be the most healthy one.

You live, you learn... or so the saying goes.

People shared their stories after Redditor ryanblumenow asked the online community,

"What did you learn at great personal cost?"

Is there anyone who loved high school?

High school is a disaster. That is true for like... 95% of us.

it's like being branded. "I survived high school because of this!!"

The past is never really past, is it? What did you see?

Redditor HelloProxima wanted to go back and visit the teenage years, by asking:

"What is the most f**ked up thing that happened in your high school?"

You're hungry one night, so you order food. You select your items, go to place your order, and see that the order has an extra $15 in fees tacked on to it, and that's not even including tip!

Believe it or not, there was a time before delivery services. You can very easily just call the restaurant you want and place the order directly. It's pretty easy–and you and the restaurant get to avoid the middle man.

But delivery services have become so ubiquitous over the years that many of us just put up with it. They're legitimate services but honestly, when you see the final price tag, how could you not feel like you've been totally scammed?

People shared their thoughts after Redditor AnnFaulskabek asked the online community,

"What is a legitimate product / service that still feels like a scam?"

When you really think about it, childhood is actually just rife with trauma.

The things we see as children, are things we are never going to escape. And nobody fully prepares you for it.

Every child born should be assigned a therapist along with a pediatrician.

Life is going to bombard us with memories we'll never unsee, because the actions of humans are random and as a child we're forced to watch.

The mark is left. So let's hear about some trauma.

Redditor Banjoman653 wanted to hear from everybody willing to share some childhood tales, by asking:

"What’s a really f**ked up thing you’ve witnessed as a kid but didn’t realise it was until you were older?"
