Use these 15 phrases when someone is rude to you
By | Lachlan Brown | hackspirit.com
In the fast-paced world of today, encountering rudeness can often be an unwelcome yet unavoidable part of life.
Whether it’s an abrasive comment at work, an impolite encounter at the grocery store, or a harsh word from a stranger online, we’ve all been on the receiving end of rudeness at some point.
It can be challenging to keep your cool, let alone respond in a constructive manner.
But just because they’re rude, it doesn’t mean you have to be.
If you encounter a rude person in the wild, it’s always handy to have some retorts on hand in case they get a little too snappy on you.
Here’s a list of a few things you can say – either to them or to yourself.
1. “Your Feedback Has Been Noted.”
I love this comeback for two reasons. One, it’s acknowledging what they said without putting too much weight on it; and two, it’s as dismissive as you can get without being actually rude yourself.
It’s short, sweet, and straight to the point, something that makes it even better.
Feel free to use this if someone’s been mouthing off too much in your general direction – or just mouthing off in general.
