Whenever someone asks “How can I help you?” you might have some crazy reaction to share.
But as they ask so politely you just control yourself and just respond like everyone does.
Well, in case, there’s a friend or cousin who is being extra nice to you and it annoys you, it’s fine to give funny replies for the same.
In this article, we are sharing some interesting and unusual ways to respond when someone is offering you help.
How To Reply To “How Can I Help You” Humorously?
Normally, when someone says if they can help you, you just tell them whether you need their help or not.
That’s how it works most of the time.
But, when this is from your close one or you’re doing a prank call to your friend on the job, you can try some funny responses to “the How can I help you?” phrase.
Not in every case, but sometimes it’s fine to try such creative ways just for fun.
You can try these sarcastic and funny responses to someone you have built a connection with.
1. “Do you really want to help me? Then go and stand over there.”
This one is a clever response to show that you just want them to stay away.
You were just minding your own business.
And someone approaches you asking if they can help you with something.
You weren’t ready for it. Nor do they, with how you respond here.
2. “No, please. Do nothing, that’s a big help to me.”
This response you can share this with your friend or cousin who is interested in helping.
But you prefer avoiding their help.
Maybe you find it’s risky, as they are just not good enough to help you out.

3. “Do you think that I will ever take help from you?”
It’s really insulting reply to give anyone.
But to a friend who often brags about how helpful they are, you can try this sarcastic response.
This way you taunt them because they want to help just so they can tell it to others.
4. “Thanks, I’m just doing better without your help.”
You politely decline their help, and thank them for offering a hand.
But you think what you do you can do the best than anyone else.
So this one sounds like a confident response.
5. “Nah, If I will take your help, I’ll have to pay you more.”
This friend is always ready to help others, that’s a good thing.
But they help on purpose.
Later they take more than they give to anyone. How smart they are!
So, this time you tell them that you have learned a lesson and not going to take their help again.

7. “Please don’t do anything for me. But for yourself.”
Everyone should help them first before they do to anyone else.
It’s not like you insult them, you value that they are to help you out.
And, because they are working too hard, you want them to take care.
Depending on the situation, this could be a sarcastic response.

Just be mindful of whom you’re sharing these responses with.
