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

Posted on

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

Fox / Via

Your smugness is really comforting, thanks.

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

Fox / Via

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

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

Fox / Via

You are?

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

Warner Bros. Pictures / Via

And enjoying every minute of it.

5. "How confident are you?"

Paramount Pictures / Via

Well now that you mention it, NOT AT ALL.

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


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

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

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

Comedy Central / Via

Aren't they the same thing?

9. "What's your plan?"

NBC / Via

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." / Via

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

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

NBC / Via


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

Fox / Via

Love me less. PLEASE.

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

Warner Bros. / Via

I won't.

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


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

Or I could just get really really drunk?

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

NBC / Via

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.
