We know, we know. Arguing of any kind — outside of a lively, spirited debate over dinner — isn’t considered gentlemanly. But, although we may not like it, verbal confrontation is simply part of our professional and personal lives. If it’s not, you’re not doing things right. After all, a couple of ruffled feathers show that you’re making an impression.
But, as long as you’re not initiating the sparring, it’s good to have a couple of barbed and well-chosen retorts in your back pocket to shut down the argument as quickly, and quietly as possible. There’s no need to drag out an argument. As such, we’ve compiled a list of the best insults a man can give while remaining a gentleman.
