What NOT to say

Have you ever said something then immediately wished you could take it back? Yeah, me too. So before you say something stupid again, read this quick and dirty guide from Real Simple and think before you open your yap.

18 Common Phrases to Avoid in Conversation

A few more I should add:

Question: Have you been crying?
Answer: Um, probably YES, and having to tell you WHY will only make me start boo-hooing all over again, thank you.

Question: Have you found a job yet?
Answer: Seriously? Have you found your tact yet?

Question: What did your kid get on his report card?
Answer: All A's. (no matter what he/she got. That's the answer.)

Question: Did you get your hair colored?
Answer: No, I just got my face lightened.

Question: What did you do all day?
Answer: More than most men do in a week.

If you have any other good retorts to stupid questions, sarcastic or otherwise, please feel free to post them below. It's always good to have an arsenal of appropriate answers to those quirky questions.
