Need a good come back!!!!!

My neighbor can be a real A_ _ sometimes. Today he walked by as I was doing some cyclo work and looked over in a real smart A_ _ tone and said you get it to shiny and you are going to blind people going down the road, I laughed and kept on with the cyclo. He never says anything when my husband is out there. Some of you real good comebacks tell me what I can say (in a nice tone) Yes it is kinda shiny but not anymore then some of those tankers we see going down the road. So much for the old fart.

Shine This!
You whish you had this much bling.
What you care your are to old to drive anyway.
I going to put this cyclo where the sun don't shine.
The glare off your bald head is what is blinding drivers.
Play deaf and keep saying what and speak up until he gives up.

Must be said in a mean tone with a glare. Nice dosen't always work.

Have fun.

My favorite comeback is usually....

God gave you two ears and one moth for a reason.

I have subsituted other things in, but this is usually what works the best to make them look like an idiot.

I just thought about you 4 hours ago as I passed the Oxford exit on I 55. We just returned from Memphis 2 hours ago, and have just gotten the trailer put to bed. We did Graceland and the Duck Ride. We stayed at Tom Sawyer RV Park, which was nice. We had some great dry rub ribs at Rendezvous. Justin was accepted a Jesuit High School and we went to a fun raiser auction, Donna has a habit of buying strange things at fund raiser actions and we ended up with 2 tickets to Graceland and a free hotel room for a night. Donna and Mother in Law stayed at the hotel one night and Justin and I stayed at Tom Sawyer. Hope to get a few more trips under our belt this summer. I hope we can cross paths soon.

If you want to be neighborly:

"why thanks, I am trying to get it at least close to what the milk and gas tankers are like on the highway. They do that so to show they are really clean and I hope to get to that stage. so I appreciate the compliment" and go back to polishing.

Have fun, laughter and not "getting" the negative comment are the best way to PO someone, or win them over. Either way, you win.....

Hi, be nice and don't let anyone get to you. Now my famous advise: "Thank You, that's the best compliment I've got all day." When I say this, they never have a come back statement. [in shock] And in your case: "Could you come back later and tell that to my husband?" Or, in the presence of your husband, "How come you always make comments about my trailer when I'm alone, but never say anything when my husband is here?"

The best one yet. I have sarcastic neighbors as well. They don't have anything else to do while their SOB is in the shop but snoop around as I am working on the AS.
