"Are you sure that's a good idea?"

Posted on

1. "I hate to say it but...I told you so."

Fox / Via kumi-strife.tumblr.com

Your smugness is really comforting, thanks.

2. "I knew it. What did I tell you?"

Fox / Via colouroffensive.wordpress.com

Another way of saying " I told you so." Great.

3. "I'm not judging you, but..."

Fox / Via s1227.photobucket.com

You are?

4. "I'm just playing Devil's advocate here."

Warner Bros. Pictures / Via giphy.com

And enjoying every minute of it.

5. "How confident are you?"

Paramount Pictures / Via wifflegif.com

Well now that you mention it, NOT AT ALL.

6. "Have you weighed the pros and cons?"

Via straightfromthea.com

No.. but I've weighed the sugar and butter and yes, I still want to eat it.

7. "There's always next time."

NBC / Via glee.wikia.com

So that part where I said it was my last chance?

8. "Is it something you need or something you want?"

Comedy Central / Via thevegan.co

Aren't they the same thing?

9. "What's your plan?"

NBC / Via dailyedge.ie

To ask you what the hell I should do, DUH.

10. "You should speak to [insert name of someone who everyone thinks is better than you], they're really good at this kind of thing."

They are also a douchebag. Are you asking me to be a douchebag?

11. "Are you sure that's a good idea?"

NBC / Via fanbros.com

No.

12. "I'm only telling you this because I love you."

Fox / Via readsleeprepeat.org

Love me less. PLEASE.

13. "Someday, you'll look back on this and laugh."

Warner Bros. / Via feministing.com

I won't.

14. "You tried your best and that's all that matters."

Via theyuniversity.net

I hope you have an award for me. You don't? Case and point.

15. "The best thing you can do is just stay positive."

Fox / Via gifsforum.com

Or I could just get really really drunk?

16. "If you want my honest opinion..."

NBC / Via the-fly-saviour.blogspot.com

When I asked for your opinion, clearly I meant your fake opinion.

17. "Well, you asked for my advice..."

And now I fucking regret it.
