4 Snappy Comebacks to Combat Dumb Crap you Hear Everyday

  • May we sharing dumb crap we hear often? Here's mine...

    As the mom of twin girls people used to say things like, "If I had twins, I'd..." I would politely ask them if they had twins. When they said no, I'd reply, "Let me know how that works out when you have twins."

    If I was in a decent mood, I'd say it with a smile. If not, I'd smirk and walk away. Trust me that no one with multiples wants advice from anyone who doesn't have multiples. I don't offer advice to people with singletons, I don't know why having twins means everyone thinks they can tell me what to do.

    I'm with you on that one. Beginning a judgmental sentence with "If..."
    just invites the other person to say, "IF you had twins? IF my aunt had balls she'd be my uncle.". Have you ever considered going with that option? If that's too crude, I'm sure you can find a clever way to sanitize the phrasing.
