Best come backs

Recommended Posts

These are all so funny.

 

One question we get asked is "Haven't you figured out how this is happening?"

 

And I answer, "No, would you care to explain it to me?"

 

That usually shuts them up.

 

One totally off the topic - once I was giving my baby a bottle in a crowded area. An older woman approached me, smiled at the baby, and then said in a conspiratorial whisper "You know dear, you really should be breastfeeding your baby." I was dumbstruck for a moment and then said, deadpan, "I don't have any breasts." She scuttled away like a cockroach trying to aviod a boot!

Hi all! It's amazing how original people are with their 'look at all your children' comments. I currently have 3 and am pregnant with number 4 and I tend to chop and change my answers alot but the ones that I use most

 

"Gee you must have a big house" - no, I just have alot of cupboard space

 

'don't you watch tv' - yes, but my husband is a fabulous lover (this one gets either gets a biglaugh or a big blush)

 

I have a girlfriend with only one and her husband said to me "why would you want more?" I said "well someone has to pick up your slack"

 

"Don't you know what causes it" - yes, holding hands - but we really like each other

 

One mum said to me "Well we all know what you've been doing" I said "Must be something you haven't been doing"

 

and to 'wow, they all look alike' I generally say in a loud whisper "that's because they're all related"

 

I also get "Are you trying to start your own football team" and I say "No, I'm just hoping to land a sitcom" or "No, I just can't let that darn Brady bunch beat me"

 

I love giving back smart alec comments to people who can't help but comment, good work ladies keep them on their toes!!!

We are expecting #7 and get alot of rude comments.

 

I like we're not trying to overpopulate the earth, just outnumber the morons.

 

Of course we know what causes it, dont you?

 

Are you going to have anymore?

Sure we're trying for one we like or sure a Hiace seats 14

 

I must say I often say things to other mums that could be taken the wrong way, but only because I love large families and it's sometimes hard to tell between a family day care mum and a large family.

There was alady when I was getting my u/s the other day who was about 20wks pregnant and she had 2 little girls in pink dresses with her. I said "Are you hoping for blue this time?" and she said "No we have 5 boys at home." I wish I'd had time to stay and get to know her more.

I hope she didn't thinkI was rude but I did explain this was my 7th.

I love reading all these funny comebacks. With 6 children, 3 of each, we have been subjected many times to peoples cruel and often thoughtless comments. If we go out to dinner we are always asked if its a birthday or special occasion and frequently get balloons plopped onto the centre of our table! Shopping with 3 trolleys is a procession line of fun at the supermarket too and open slander for comments. When asked how I possibly afford to feed them all I usually say that I take turns to feed some one night and the others the next. It usually leaves them gaping for air enough to turn and walk away hahahahaha

I seem to be using

"we promise we will stop when we build an ugly one" - kinda stops the questions pretty quick :rolleyes:

 

Also - as we have 2 boys and 2 girls at the moment and people seem perplexed 'why would you ruin that, you hit the jackpot' Ive decided to respond.

 

"Now the teams are even we need a referee" :p

 

This is fun :D

This was before we had our son

 

You have 5 girls. OMG are you in for a rude shock.

I know you were pretty rude.

 

5 girls don't you have a tv.

Yes the 2nd biggest plasma thats why I pregnant again we need to upgrade it with the baby bonus.

 

Got this comment when preg with #4

3 kids whats wrong with you

I am trying out all the different drugs they give you during labour to see what works best

 

THEM: Are these all yours.

ME: What? where?

THEM: These girls?

Me: damn those bloody kids keep following me.

 

When I'm food shopping I love stirring up people. When someone is around looking at us I say to 1 of the girls, Can you go find that girl that is on special in isle 4 and tell her I will take her home too.

 

Or if we get stopped and someone says all girls

I say: Yeah their on special in isle 5.

 

You know you are over populating the country.

Yeah but at least I am doing it legally.

 

 

love it!

Lol at all these! I think this would have to be WAY up there with my favorite threads.

The only comeback I have that I never trip in my words with is "wow that's original..." that's always a classic to shut them up (most of the time)

For the comment "have u figured out what causes it yet?" you could say "Why? Did you want to explain it?"

I've pulled out a few of these comebacks recently (since boy #4 arrived) but was stumped when a hospital worker stopped me out of the elevator and when he saw I had 4 kids asked if they were worth the $20k baby bonus he paid me to have them... I was floored and just walked away in shock.... How rude and mean.

My fave is from Comedienne Fiona O'Loughlin

 

She has 5 children .....

 

When asked or comments are made she replies "I keep having them until I have one I like" .... too funny

Should have told him that you earn to much to qualify for the baby bonus :)

One I've been using lately is "don't you know that 4 kids is a status symbol?"

 

Or "I want to be like Vic Beckham" (who like me has 3 boys and a girl - although my girl is yet to arrive)

 

The ones I hate the most are the continual commentary on gender. Since our girl hasn't quite arrived yet, I usually go with 'I don't care what I'm getting, healthy is what matters'. But if it becomes known that it's a girl, or if they persist I say "actually a boy would be more convenient".

Just today a friend of mine who has just had her third was told this by a supermarket checkout lady: "you must have your hands full, perhaps you should get your tubes tied if you can't control yourself!"

 

Quite rightly, she complained to the supervisor!

I don't have an LF but came from one.

 

Bystander: You couldn't possibly have time for them all.

Mum: Why? Do you have trouble organising your time?

 

Waiting for train on platform

By stander: How many children do you have?

M or D would reply with "12, because they're cheaper by the dozen!" - would often leave the bystander having a happy chuckle.

I've had months of 'Oh my you're having number 4......'.

 

Best way for us to keep them quiet is

'we didn't read the fine print on the SIVF contract. Buy 3 get 1 free.'

Only to hear that the sister of their cousins 2nd husband had THAT happen to them.

'What they had sex and fell pregnant' Shock horror. LOL.

 

Oh so many more years of uninvited comments, yay!

"Are you trying to start your own football team"

 

I have cousins who would reply, "Hell no, we want a cricket side."

 

Lurking 'cause I *wish* I had a large family. If it ever comes true I'll remember all these great comebacks, ladies.

I just tell people I have heard it all before and its not funny any more.....

 

I actually think its more funny that people can be so rude thank any of my comebacks.

 

My best one though is that 'none of my kids like me so I had to keep going until one eventually did....."

 

Oh and I had one OLD lady tell me that I was crazy having so many of my kids, and asked me what was wrong with me? WTF I turned around and told her that my husband was so HOT and good in bed and I couldnt get enough of him. You should have seen her face ! Hilarious. The lady next to her was laughing so hard she almost pee'd herself and winked at me as if to say 'good on you for giving it back to the od duck :) "
