Great Comeback Lines!
by Tom Letson, MA LPC

Comebacks can be helpful when dealing with mean kids,
however, kids should practice comebacks with an adult.  
Comebacks don't stop bullying, BUT they can increase
confidence, which can discourage bullies.
 Never use a
comeback if a kid may become challenged or violent! To learn

The comebacks listed below are examples. Select one that is
suitable to your situation and age. Get help when needed!

Your words are meaningless to me.

    Get a life.

    Whatever you say.

    Why do you say things like that?

    You are wasting your breath.

    Your opinions have no effect on me at all.

    I don’t let someone like you get to me.

    I heard you and I don’t care.

    That is kind of funny but stop now.

    This is just wrong.

    Everyone says I’m going to run into people like you
    for the rest of my life – great.

    Here we go again.

    You again?
    You are a waste of my time.

    I wish you would stop wasting my time.

    Feel better now?
    You’re a real expert at this. Congrats.

    Can you just stop?
Are you done?

    Yeah, yeah....

    Yeah right...
    Why do you do this over and over?

    How can you say that with a smile on
    your face?

    How would you feel if someone were doing
    this to you?

    It would be nice if you grew

    Real mature.

    Stop being a child.

    You should hear yourself - pathetic.

    I could care less about what you think.

    You can see I'm terribly hurt.

    Say whatever you want.

    I will never feel bad because of

    Keep talking - I'm not listening.

    It’s real sad that you are doing this.

    It must be a joy to be your parents.

    What did I ever do to you?

    Why does this make you
    feel good?

    This is a shame because I actually thought we
    could have been friends.

    You know we used to be friends.

    When we were friends I never thought
    you would do something like this.

I really thought you were a good kid.

    I had no idea you were this kind of

    I never thought you could do something
    this mean.

    You used to be a pretty nice kid.

    You have really changed.

    Stop using me to feel good about yourself.

    Build up your self-esteem some
    other way.

    OK you hurt me- move on.

    Just words.

    Wow. You discovered I’m
    different than you.  

    Wow. You discovered I look different than you.  

    They say everyone has a talent.

    And that’s supposed to make me feel what?

    I should really report you but you’re not worth

    You can think about stopping now.

    Are we going to go through this
    every single day?

    Are you going to waste my time like
    this every day?

    Is it your goal in life or something to do this
    to me?

    I feel sorry for you.!
