You ever walk away from a situation only to later come up with the perfect response you should have said? Or the inverse: setting up the perfect thing to say and getting a response that completely throws you off?
Normally perfect comeback situations are reserved for screenplays, where writers control both sides of the conversation and have time to craft them exactly. But every once in a while, one pops up in the wild. And thanks to super advanced technologies like screenshots, we get to keep and share these responses with the world.
10. You’re doing it wrong
9. Maybe he’s not the catch you thought he was…

1. Help control the pet population
My neighbor told me coyotes keep eating his outdoor cats so I asked how many cats he has and he said he just goes to the shelter and gets a new cat afterwards so I said it sounds like he’s just feeding shelter cats to coyotes and then his daughter started crying.

Now that I’ve read up on good responses, I’m gonna go take a shower and think up some super clever responses for the guy who cut me off in traffic today. It’s gonna be retroactively epic.
What’s your favorite comeback?
