The extremely polite insults that are worse than any swear word.

One curse of being English is that I’m internally programmed to be unfailingly polite, even to people who’ve done wrong by me. Someone walks into me? Instead of getting angry, I apologise – I can physically not bring myself to say “F*ck you!” even when I’m yelling it in my head.

Thanks to these well-mannered Imgur insults, I’ve now got the perfect comeback.

1. For the colleague that stole your lunch from the office fridge.

2. For people who stand on the wrong side of the escalator.

3. For that person you just have an irrational hatred for.
