    “No one will ever love you like I do.”

    As I was watching the video, I thought, “From your mouth to God’s ears!”

    RIGHT after that, you say, “My ex-husband told me this once, and I thank God he was right!”

    Another one is “Who DOES that?!” with that air / look of incredulity mixed with “sneery pity” they’re so good at.

    Yah; okay (HUGE eyeroll). Next!

    • You’ve heard that “no one will love you like I do ” nonsense too, huh? It’s so ridiculous! I’m still glad my ex was right about that!! Lol

      Oh yes… “Who does that?!” Another little “gem”. Who? Anyone sane & not a narcissist maybe??

      Another goodie… “No other woman would feel that way! ” or its counterpart, “Any other woman would gladly do this for me..” Sooooo…you know this how? You’ve spoken to every other woman in the world have ya?

    Yeah, RIGHT?! They’ve spoken to EVERY other woman on the planet!

    My very first thought about that now is, “Well, then, I guess you’ll have no trouble getting it done for you, will you?”

    I used to get that mostly as a kid: “ANOTHER child would / wouldn’t do (thus-and-such),” or, worse, “ANOTHER mother wouldn’t (allow / tolerate thus-and-such).” Shame-and-Guilt much?

    One of Mr. Happy’s gonna-be Flying Monkeys is especially fond of “Who DOES that?!”

    • LOL! I wish I had thought of that when my ex told me what any other woman would feel or do. Brilliant response!

      Ohhhh yes! Lots of shame & guilt attached to that nonsense. See how awful you were & how long suffering she was? Uggghhhhh!

      Nice flying monkey he’s got there. Sounds like a devoted one… sheesh
