Being called ‘lazy’ isn’t good. We all know that. 

And, that’s more insulting when you’re not lazy but still, someone calls you ‘that’. 

Fine, if you’re not into something or don’t want to do something for a while. 

But that doesn’t make you lazy anyway. 

Next time, someone tries to provoke you into doing what they want, you should give them the witty and funny comebacks for calling you ‘a lazy’.

First, you need to know why they call you that. 

Check it yourself, how true it is.

Maybe, you are a lazy person, but you have no idea about it.

In that case, you should do something, when you notice you do nothing important. 

Or doing nothing at all. 

Whereas in other cases, someone calls so, without any valid reason or context. 

It’s their trick to get something done from you.

So, when you find that someone calls you lazy for doing nothing for them, here are the funny comebacks you can share:

1. “Right, I’m so lazy that I don’t want to respond to you.”

A perfect response to shut them down with their strategy.

You accept being called lazy here.

And so, you prefer not to say to them anything. 

2. “It’s not like that, I just don’t enjoy doing such things. Like this one.” 

The lack of interest in doing such things doesn’t make you lazy.

Share this direct comeback to make it clear to them. 

3. “I rather be lazy than do some crazy things like you.”

What they are about to do, makes no sense.

That you’re not interested in what they suggest to do.

First, you need to check it yourself, whether you are doing something meaningful in your life or not. 

If you find nothing important you do with your time, you should take it as advice.
