My Awesomely Random Life (and Everything in Between)

We’ve all been there.

We’ve all done it.

That moment when you play the  “You too!” card when it doesn’t necessarily apply to the person you’re chatting with.

It’s just one of those things that just slips out, sometimes unintentionally, sometimes without thinking, but most of the time,  it’s simply because you’re just trying to relay the compliment/sincere acknowledgement to the other person. And it’s always after the fact when you scrunch up your nose, turn up your lip, and turn beat red with embarrassment, realizing the “oops” that you just committed. I pretty much am guilty of this faux pas on the daily (just another one of my many, many talents) and have thenceforth (thank you, Word ‘O the Day calendar) come up with 9 times it’s awkward to accidentally say “You too!”

1. At a restaurantrest

2. At work.

“Great presentation, Susan! You knocked it out of the park!”**

“Thanks so much! You too!”

**Other person didn’t give a presentation. In fact, other person may have fallen asleep during said presentations.

3. At the airportairport

4. In a receiving line of any kind.

“Congratulations on your graduation! *shakes hand and presents diploma

“Thank you; you too!”

Literally please end my life. Like, right now.

5. At the movies.movies

6. When someone pays you an unreturnable compliment.

Boyfriend to girlfriend: “That is such a beautiful dress on you, hunny!”

Girlfriend to boyfriend: “You too!”

Girlfriend: awrgh wghjrg RWHRH!

7. After a sporting event that you participated in but not the other person.sporting event

8. As a matter of repetition.

“It was so great to see you, Bill!”

“It was great to see you, Tom!”

“You too!”


9. When it’s your birthday and not somebody else’s.birth

We’ve all been there.

We’ve all done it.

That awkward “You too.”

But hey, at least we can take pride in knowing that we’re wishing our flight attendant a fun non-existent trip to Hawaii, a very happy non-birthday to our grandma and a delicious missing steak dinner to our waitress.

It’s the thought that counts, right?

Question of the day: Have you ever played the awkward “You too” card?

  1. I’m sure I’ve done it often because I’m a dork. You too! 🙂
