Being at a loss for words can be incredibly frustrating.

Particularly when someone has just thrown an insult in your direction.

While your brain is simply screaming to take them down, sometimes it's just impossible to find the right words in the heat of the moment.

Redditor anonymoussalmon1 surveyed his fellow Redditors for the best comebacks that can be used at almost any time by asking :

"What are the best comebacks you know to any kind of insults?"

"I'll show you where you can put that..."

"I learned this in third grade:"

"If someone sticks their tongue out at you, say, 'No thanks...I use toilet paper'."

"They will never do it again. Works with ALL ages."- Sandpaper_Pants.

Inside joke.

"'OH now I see what people were talking about'."

"And never fill them in."- SprinklesMore8471.

Can I help you?

"If somebody says “'what are you looking at?', I respond with “'I’m asking myself the same thing'.”- MochaManBearPig.

That the best you've got?

"I’ve been called worse by better."- UltraaMilds.

"That might be hurtful if anyone gave a sh*t what you think."- PowerStacheOfTheYear.

Some people...

"'I envy the people who've never met you'."-Back2Bach.

What was that?

"I’m sorry I wasn’t listening."- LurkysGoCart.

A comeback for a comeback.

"Not reeeeally an insult, but if someone says 'thats what she said!' I reply with a solid 'yeah, not to you.' "

"Never fails to amuse."- legitttz.

Daddy Issues.

"When somebody says, 'Do you know who my father is?' just reply, “why? Your mom didn’t tell you?'”- Doctor-Dragonborn.

Judge and be judged.

"'What people say about you was indeed the truth!'"

"Even if it's fake, it will eat anyone from inside thinking how they're being judged."- TunakYourLastTun.

Perhaps the most effective and efficient comeback seemed to escape the Reddit community.

Which is to simply walk away, and take the high road.

Then again, a good comeback should never be put to waste.

People who work in hotels see all kinds of people.

As people from all over the world go in and out of their revolving doors on an almost daily basis.

Though it might be the housekeeping staff who see more than anyone else, and frankly more than they would care to see themselves.

Unlike most of the staff, they have the unique position of going into the guest's rooms.

Of course, they tend to knock to make sure no one's there before entering.

But every now and again, the guests don't hear the knock or put on the "please makeup room" sign on their door instead of "do not disturb."

Leaving the poor cleaning staff with a memories they would likely do anything to forget.

It can be wise to trust this gut instinct, as we learned from many in the Reddit community.

Often those goosebumps or the voice in their head actually saved them from serious harm.

It's never a good feeling to learn that your partner has been unfaithful.

Hearing this news almost instantly gets your mind racing, wondering what it was which led them to do this.

"Was I not present enough?"

"Have I let myself go?"

"Do they not love me anymore?"

If there's anything that could make you feel any worse than this sad list of possibilities, it's whenever they try to justify their behavior.

Often coming up with the most ludicrous excuses for breaking their partner's hearts, which they somehow thought might actually work or at least earn them a little sympathy.

When the only thing they likely got was an open door and a swift goodbye.
