i thought this thread would be fun!

post here your unhelpful comments/ advice people have given to you.

i'll start, so that you all know the kind of thing i mean in this thread.

my friend victoria went to see her sister last weekend, and was telling me about it- so i went to see my sister last weekend, she's really well

i said to her oh cool, what did you do with her?

and she said, without anything to prompt it.. you know, my sister is a girl.

(no kidding!. all sisters are girls!)

another one i had recently was someone ringing me up telling me that it was their birthday, and they'd been given packages wrapped up in paper

they asked me the question.. do you think, that maybe someone got me a present?

(well, hmm, usually on your birthday if you're given something wrapped in paper, it's a present.... god)

advice wise, again, it's stuff people don't need to tell me.. did you know if you didn't have your spacesuit on, you couldn't survive in space?

wow?. really?

i'll win first prize on the chase for that one

but seriously.. anyone got any like this?. stuff that just does not need to be said. at all

One of my friends is just awful for this!!

She's always pointing the obvious, like for example the other week I was too tired to stay up and watch Big Brother Canada live and I mentioned staying off twitter the next morning until I could watch it to avoid spoilers, she was like "yeah aha don't want that", I think she just likes to be part of everything in our group chat so makes obvious/pointless responses to everything anyone says laugh.gif

I thought of one that happened a few years ago where I was at a family dinner party (where they used to always force us to line up according to height for photos mellow.gif) and my aunt was chatting to my sister (they never got along very well). The conversation topic was pets (my sister has four cats, my aunt has two guinea pigs) and my aunt was like "The thing with pets is you have to feed them, walk them..." And my sister just kinda snapped like "I feed them". lmao. I guess my aunt was just making conversation and she definitely likes to discuss things and goes off on tangents a lot, but talk about stating the obvious indeed.

Former footballer Michael Owen is famous for this~~

Eg-
That would've been a goal had it gone inside the post.
To stay in the game, you have to stay in the game.
You need people who score goals. That's how you win games
Wenger will be quite happy that Arsenal haven't conceded
It's even, it could go either way.
It's a good run, but it's a poor run, if you know what I mean?

A common one that my mum says when I ask where something is:
QUOTE
Wherever you put it!
And when I used to ask when dinner was:
QUOTE
It'll be ready when it's ready!

So I don't bother asking either of those any more tbh laugh.gif comedy genius tho

Whenever I lose something and I'll ask my mum if she's seen it. She'll say: Where was the last place you saw it? To which I will answer e.g.: I thought it was in my room but I've searched everywhere, but it isn't there.
She will then proceed to list every single piece of the damn furniture in my room, and ask me if i've checked there: Have you checked under your bed? Have you checked in your wardrobe? Have you checked on top of your wardrobe? etc etc to which everytime I will answer yeah I checked everywhere, yeah I checked everywhere, YES MOTHER I f***ING CHECKED EVERWHERE!!?!! and then when she'll finish she'll just go ohhhh, I don't know then dry.gif

In the music department at my school, we have two basically "running gags" that boil down to this. The music building here is one story high, so whenever someone comes in asking if we know where someone/something is, we'll pretty much always comment "it's/they're on the first floor". Another one (which my boss actually started) is to say "drive fast, take chances" or something similar when someone is going to drive somewhere.

when i was explaining wild things to my sister:

me: so wild things is this show on sky 1 where people dress up as animals, then what they have to do is go through the wild wood tackling various challenges, and at the end the winning team has a chance to win 10 thousand pounds.

her: that show sounds so boring and stupid. why would someone dress up as a rabbit or a mole to take part in challenges?

me: actually, i love it!. i'm glad it got renewed for a new series

her (looking amazed at me liking such a childish show)

does it have animals in it?

oh, well i'm not sure. mentioning rabbit and mole may have given the game away.. but if you're not sure if they are animals or not, their's always google

You have a personality complex - my dad to me, when I was 14.

That really helped, Dad.

the most unhelpful one I can think of off rhw top of my head is

'i can't find somethibg'

response

'where did you last have it'

it's so annoying when people say this, although admittedly I'm sure I've said it also a couple of times but it's like if I knew where I had it I wouldn't be asking laugh.gif

If I overhear that one, I always counter with the classic: ‘it is always in the last place you look’.

Factually true, but utterly pointless and unhelpful.

aha when I find whatever I'm looking for I always do the classic 'it was in the last place I looked. Typical' too! laugh.gif I think it's more habit when I say that than anything though.
