Things I Wish I'd Said

The older I get the more I have a tendency to look back on certain episodes of my life and think that maybe a well-chosen phrase at the correct time or a timely "no" or maybe even a "yes" would have possibly made a world of difference. This does not mean that I wish my life was different, necessarily... of course, we all wish certain things in our lives were better or somehow enhanced, but...

Anyway, here, in no particular order, are some of the things I wish I'd said at certain times in my life.

  • No, I don't think so.
  • Alright, well why don't you drive, then?
  • No.
  • Alright then, stop the car - see if I care.
  • I said no.
  • OK Jim, that's good advice, and I will take it and act upon it.
  • Yes, actually, that would be nice, thanks.
  • Go home, you're drunk.
  • I'd really rather not.
  • Hello, I'd like a Saturday job please.
  • No.
  • (to myself) Do I want to chat? Nope, I think I'll block you, Missy.
  • Oh shut up, you complete loon.
  • You know, it is really unprofessional to talk to me like that in front of other members of staff.
  • Take this job and...
  • No, I don't want to move clear across the country.
  • No.
  • You really are a conniving old cow, aren't you?
  • Nuh-uh.
  • Sod off!
  • Well, perhaps if you didn't spend money like water every time you get some, I wouldn't have to take all my CDs to the friggin' pawn shop, would I?
  • No.
  • No.
  • Whatever.


  1. I think many of these involve one person

  2. 6 seems unlikely


Complaints, comments, questions, concerns, missing or broken links, etc?
