People Share Their Favorite Family Friendly Insults

When I'm writing a new script and I come across characters who are destined to be enemies it's aways fun to concoct scorching insults to sling. And right away what you learn from your dramaturge is that less is more. You can eliminate twenty words and infuse them into a ferocious look that leaves the audience heaving. So you realize it's actually quite easy to keep it clean and classy by leaving foul words--though they often send the point home--out first. Hidden meanings in plain sight that leave people in tears are the best.

Redditor u/AvPlayz wanted everyone to share some witty repartee that doesn't require scandalous words by asking..... What is your best insult without swearing?

"I'm lonely not desperate."

I bet your parents change the subject when their friends ask about you.

I freaking wish they would. Dad just had a laundry list of crap that I needed to change to be more successful.

I got straight A's, lettered in Latin and AP Physics, and took all AP classes, dad. No crap I wasn't getting out for more exercise or doing more pleasure reading-- I had 4 hours of homework a night!

Being Everywhere....

In 2004 I once told a girl, "You're like Visa, everywhere I want to be". She giggled and then went on with her life.

in 2013, while drunk at a wedding after party of one of my best friends, I was sharing stories of dumb things I did as a teen and young adult to a table full of people when a very pretty lady sitting on her fiancée's lap drunkenly slurred out, "Where have you been all my life?" to which I replied, "I'm not sure, but I got here as fast as I could"...

The two of them left soon after that statement was made.

I once asked a girl, "Where have you been all my life?"

Her response was, "I don't know, but I wish I was still there."

Take the Boot

Dad's old one is "couldn't pour pee out of a boot with the instructions written on the heel."

ruessellvt

Oh no... this one got me because at first I was picturing someone lifting the boot above their head to read the underside. Took me a few seconds to realize you would flip it over instead. 🤦🏻♂️

Turns out I couldn't pour pee out of a boot.

You own a Mirror?

Calling them by a characteristic or article of clothing they are wearing.

Whatever you say haircut. Or sure thing sunglasses.

It will bother them long after the comment.

Dumb Luck

I find the fact that you lived this long both surprising and disappointing.

p_cashew

I see that you haven't met some of my neighbors. Here's a good example. One of them lit their yard on fire, forgot they had a garden hose, ran around with a bucket trying to put it out, and then eventually remembered there was a hose.

Did I mention that they are a firefighter so none of these things ought to have happened? I am glad I don't live immediately next to them and that incident has resulted in me having less confidence in my local fire department... for obvious reasons.

Your grades say marry rich, but your face says study harder.

Or "honey, you're not pretty enough to be this dumb."

Have you ever found yourself in a conversation, when someone brings up a topic they aren't too familiar with, but you are?

This gives you the opportunity to sweep in and share your knowledge on the subject.

While one would imagine that your relative expertise on the subject might result in thanks and appreciation, more often than not, the reaction from your friends is "why do you know that?"

Awkward as it may feel at the moment, there are very few people who don't carry some unusual areas of expertise and trivia on subjects most others are most likely unfamiliar with.

Redditor quadruple_b was curious to learn the random facts others have shared which wound up bringing their conversations to a halt, leading them to ask:

What is a really weird fact, that makes people say "why do you know that?"

As relationships get serious, it's understandable that one will want to know as much as possible about their significant others.

That is, until we make a discovery about them which might forever change how we view our relationship.

Sometimes, it might be a discovery that might just take some getting used to, even if we'd have been better off not knowing.

Other times, however, this newfound information makes remaining in this relationship untenable.

Redditor Mr_MightyMouse was curious to hear what people wished they'd never learned about their past and present relationships, leading them to ask:

"What is the one thing you found out about your S/O you wish you never did?"

Don't have sex with people attached to someone already.

There is no good excuse.

There is no reason that makes it worth it.

Most of the time the "reasons" are lies.

RedditorVirtual_Welder_4525wanted to hear from those willing to spill a little tea about some bedmates. They asked:

"People who knowingly have slept with someone who was in a relationship, why did you do it?"
