An argument usually isn't personal...

[rebelmouse-image 18349570 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

But boy, do people sure love to make them personal. It's already annoying when someone is being defensive, but then when they turn it around on you, it might just take all your control not to punch them where the sun don't shine.

u/Gildolen asked Reddit: What's the most annoying thing people respond with when they know they have lost the argument?

Here were the answers.

Diversion

[rebelmouse-image 18356918 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

They COMPLETELY change the point of the current argument and wander off somewhere else and try to WIN that.

Power Play

[rebelmouse-image 18356919 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

"Excuse me I have a life to get to, bye" it's just so patronising and they think that means they've won the argument through that

Deep, Man...

[rebelmouse-image 18356920 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I knew a kid in high school who, any time he started losing an argument, would just respond that it doesn't matter because the world's just a figment of your imagination anyway. For some reason he thought that was the automatically win every argument card.

Why Does That Matter?

[rebelmouse-image 18355202 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

"Oh yeah? Well at least I didn't [insert unrelated embarrassing thing you did 20 years ago]!"

Le Truth

[rebelmouse-image 18356921 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

"I guess we just have different truths..."

that's not what "truth" means.

The Most Patronizing Answer Ever

[rebelmouse-image 18356922 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

"Ok sweety."

A Shortcut Away

[rebelmouse-image 18356923 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

"You'll understand when you're older"

I'm not a kid anymore but I remember how infuriating this could be.

Insult Warfare

[rebelmouse-image 18356924 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Instead of admitting they were wrong/incorrect, they turn to insulting the person that they're arguing with. Not only does it make the person look even more ridiculous, its absolutely cringe.

Entrapment

[rebelmouse-image 18356925 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

You mad?

There is literally no way to respond to it that won't elicit more "you mad"

It's A Fact, Not My Opinion

[rebelmouse-image 18356926 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

"Well, that's what YOU think!"

Anti-Vaxxers Love This One

"You can't trust everything you read on the internet."

I'm pulling up scientific papers here, you're just spouting off some hearsay you got from a friend.

Of Course They Do

[rebelmouse-image 18356928 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

"Go ahead, get the last word! We all know how you have to get the last word!"

  • Almost always said by people trying to get the last word because they know they've lost the argument.

Trump Supporters Be Like

[rebelmouse-image 18356930 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

"Oh my god what do you care so much?"

I didn't until you started spewing off complete nonsense MF-er.

Devaluing

[rebelmouse-image 18347957 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Maybe not everyone, maybe just my dad does this:

"We are not equals, we will never be equals. Just the nature that I have done more than you does that. I fathered four children, survived a war, am a leader in my community and industry, etc. etc. I am deserving of the utmost respect from you."

There was not even an relevant argument rebuttal, he just didn't like my tone.

Role Of The Victim Goes To....

[rebelmouse-image 18356931 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

If we're having an argument with other people around my brother always acts like he's being attacked for being wrong and says "He always does this." Trying to make me look like the bad guy for pointing out that he's wrong.

It Just Got Personal

[rebelmouse-image 18356932 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

A personal attack, it drives me crazy when people say stuff like "well it's never happened to you so you wouldn't know anything about it"

Dismissive

[rebelmouse-image 18356934 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

In real life: "alright, whatever", "I am older than you, just do what i say"

on the internet: "lol nice english"

Nyeh Nyeh Nyeh

[rebelmouse-image 18356935 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

My brother always starts repeating what I said but in a childish voice or so

Mom.

"I'm not gonna argue with you."

Dating and the search for love and companionship... What a nightmare.

This journey plays out nothing like in the movies.

Every Prince or Princess (or everything in BTW) seems to have a touch of the psycho.

The things people say during what should be simple dinner conversation can leave a dining partner aghast.
