I put this on the same page as anyone who says, "cool beans". The phrase was never cool

The best response to that is "Yeah that sounds great, let me get a chocolate chip"

I haven't used this since middle school 😂🤣 are other adults really using this 🤣

I prefer the "They don't make medals for that" response.

I haven't heard this phrase in 10 years. Where is it used now? Also does anyone like this phrase? Pretty sure it is popular to think it is dumb. Are there people who hear this and go, damn you are funny my accompishment is mediocre?

I mean sometimes it's really deserved. If someone told me they did hard work by passing 2nd grade math last year as a 20 year old damn straight I'm using that. If someone says they did something that's in the bare minimum of their job description it's also deserved. A cashier getting butthurt because I didn't congratulate them on giving me the correct change is 100% justified in me using that saying

If someone says they did something that's in the bare minimum of their job description it's also deserved.

The absolute perfect example of proper usage for this right here.

It's a great response!

Someone comes up to you and tells you they actually did their job, like a child telling their mommy, heck yes I'm saying it! Its better then what ppl really want to say and not even remotely as cruel.

I'm not your manager, mom or partner and I don't have cookies, be prepared for disappointment.

Depends on the context. You could always say "ok" and not be rude. I don't know why you need to try to be a smartass if someone is giving you information that may or may not benefit you.

Yes exactly my point. Responding with "ok" or "cool" will get your point across and will more effectively shut them down since you're not giving them any attention at all with it.

Very true. I was referring to the situations where you're not their boss, not working in their area and they come up to you on your break just to interrupt your conversation to tell ya yet again.

Oddly specific, I know, but happens way too often.

I like your shoe laces.

@LookAnAltAccount I like your shoe laces.

Thanks, I stole them from the president

Lol yes I want a cookie!

Congrats, do you want a Blue Peter badge or something?

That is such a condescending phrase. Just reading it made me want to crawl under a rock and not come out for a month 😂

Congrats

Have a cookie

It's one of those overused phrases that a mental midget thinks is clever because the internet told them so. It's about as bad as "I was today years old when I learned..." or "tomorrow is not promised".

What year is this?

I had a stupid and petty teacher in HS who said that.

It's just supposed to be dismissive. Answer with "sure" next time and see what they say lmfao

If you're offering the cookie then yes, I do.

congrats want a cookie or brownie?

A good way to not have to deal with people saying this to you is to to not brag.

What do you want, a hero biscuit?

I've mainly seen this type of response used when a lazy person does the bear minimum, and expects enormous gratitude/a pat on the back for it.

Like a kid thinking they deserve a reward from their family for cleaning their room.

I'd love a cookie. Thanks!

Most times people will say this to someone who's being pretentious or trying to brag about something. Maybe you'd benefit from doing a little self reflecting?

I haven't had it said to me since childhood. I've just been hearing it more than usual lately from conversations around me. Since I only heard it as a kid I connect it to being a very childish response. The best way to deal with an irritating pretentious person imo is to give them the bare minimum by saying nothing at all, a quick "mhm", or "cool"
