Yeah, I know. It sounds stupid and even a bit whiny, but I'm getting a bit tired of it. People seem to think that being a complete and utter jerk and treating me like less than crap is a good way to make them look good. I don't know if they think they're being funny, or if they're just too blind to see that they're being jerk-like, but it's getting rather old.
I'm not the coolest person in the world. I'm not the smartest, or most pop-savvy, but I am just as much of a person with feelings as they are.
What am I to do? Shrug it off? Dish it back at them? Call them out in front of everyone and risk looking like a cry-baby?
Witty and sharp comebacks are always good.

Give it back with interest.
I replied to your email btw.

The problem is that I'm not very quick with comebacks. Besides, I've found that they just fuel the fire.

Practice. Or something. Come on over, we'll have an insult-fest. I could use the practice, too. I never think of witty retorts until the moment has passed. (Kind of like how I never think to honk the horn until I'm a mile away from a near-accident with some moron driver.)

That could be a good thing for anyone, really. Establish some ground rules such as "No personal attacks, and no swearing", then see how creative someone can be and how quickly they can do it.
