I Should Have Said.: Quick-Witted Comebacks I Only Wish I'd Said to Friends and Lovers

Am I just too sensitive? Or, are people as crass, tactless, rude and cruel as they often seem to be? 

Sometimes so surprised at what has been said that it is too late to respond with what... I Should Have Said.

I felt like I had been used, disrespected, hoodwinked, my time wasted but especially let down. So I left town...

But, this isn't just my story, it's yours too, part of the universal adventure of friendship and love.
