When Somebody Says "You're doing it wrong"

Post by Mister Jellyfish Mister » Sat Jul 26, 2008 9:11 pm

A place to prepare with good comebacks to people that tell you "you're doing it wrong".

1. "It's clear to me now that I am doing it wrong. What a lucky day to have met you. Please check back with me often, that you might correct me in all my fields of endeavor."

Just because I did'nt do it the way you would, does'nt mean I did wrong. Especially if the same results were accomplished.

You were right about me being wrong, but you were wrong about you being right.

just because you feel you know the direction and outcome of my action, doesn't not mean you have a grasp of the overall possibilities and an acceptance of said possibilities to the point at which the desired outcome will achieve its completion, with positive and intended result........

Would it be WRONG if I came by and dressed some of that naked espresso with Kahlua and Irish whiskey?

Oh, some great come-backs already! You're doing it right! (snicker - cackle... *snort*)

Here's one I heard somewhere:

While a simple "Fuck you very much" is neither clever nor subtle, sometimes it just feels right.

This is a social experiment. I am counting the number of assholes that are willing to give me such information. Congratulations, you are number 17!

"Wrongly." "Wrongly" is the correct adverb. I find it very difficult to accept criticism from someone who can't even criticise my efforts with proper grammar.

Now, pass me another handful of maggots, won't you?

burst into tears, grab the nearest can of gasoline, pour it all over yourself and then start asking passerby's for a lighter while screaming "it's all that motherfucker's fault, he CRUSHED my self-esteem!"

Umm..That's Star's reply to the question. It was not directed towards the other posters.

Your resume needs to be edited to say "Has trouble with the concept of context"...
