Guess how much....

.... I paid for this.

I don’t know how much you paid for it and I mostly don’t care. The fact that you’re asking me to guess means that the answer is going to be a surprise doesn’t it you tedious oik? I guessing from your smug tone that you paid less than list price or market value so, unless I’m really lucky, I doubt I’ll be able to guess. Furthermore, to try to guess would only encourage your irritating, childish attempt at turning my life into that of a daytime TV gameshow contestant. If you wish to boast about how cheaply you purchased whatever consumer good you have bought, just do so. I don’t give a **** anyway so the shorter conversation will save us both some time.

If, in future, you ask me to guess how much you paid, the conversation will go like this:
Idiot: “Guess how much I paid for this”
Me: (Yawns) “Don’t know”
Idiot: “Have a guess”
Me: (Rolls eyes) “1p”
Idiot: “Guess again”
Me: “OK. A million pounds”
Idiot: “Have a proper guess”
Me: (Tuts) “Ok. 2p”
Idiot: “No, have a real guess”
Me: “Nine hundred and ninety nine pounds and ninety nine pence”.
Idiot: “No have a prop…ow! Why have you hit me with an axe?”

The only time it's acceptable, is if whatever it is is still available at that wonderful price, and the person knows you'd be interested in having one of whatever it is. then they've done you a favour.

Almost as bad as "how old do you think I am?

I dunno 150? (looks) 3? (mental age).

Obviously you are so insecure and vain that you want me to say younger than you are. Being nice and polite I'll THINK "Well you look 50 so I'll go younger and say 40". So - "40" - pause - actually I am 38. So - we have BOTH lied.

"You'll never guess who I saw!"

No I won't, because using the power of your own eyes, you saw them, not me. Jesus? Suggs from Madness? Roland Rat? That lady from the Persil advert? I don't know.

I do think minor acts of violence should be acceptable in some social situations.
