It can be very annoying sometimes when someone asks this question, especially rudely. Many bullies and street guys most especially like to say this. When next someone says “what are you looking at’ here are thirty good comebacks you can give, rather than become speechless.
“I’m Not Checking You Out”
If someone asks, “what are you looking at” you can give a comeback by saying “Don’t worry, I wasn’t checking you out.
I was only admiring how much the universe has blessed you” or you can spice it up by saying “I wasn’t checking you out, I was only wondering how much more beautiful the world would have been without people like you” or “I wasn’t checking you out, I was only wondering how much better it would be if you would just leave”.
“That’s Not Your Business”
Another good response when someone asks what you’re looking at rudely, is to say “How is that any of your business” or be more direct and say, “how is what I’m looking at any of your business” or just say “none of your business” this would really keep the person in his/her place.
Yes, you can just reply by saying “you..” Say it empathetically and pointedly. This is a good response, especially to someone who usually bullies you, stand up to the person and say “you” if you’re bolder you can add, “I’m looking at you, what are you going to do about that?”
Bullies expect you to cower down and remain under their oppression, showing boldness and courage alone, sometimes is enough to make them back down. Look at them straight in the face while saying this and be bold while saying it, with no iota of fear.
“Where You Kept Your Senses”
Another good comeback to “what are you looking at?”, is to say, “where you kept your senses” or you can make it a full sentence and say “I’m looking for/at where you kept your senses” or “I’m trying to find where you kept your senses”.
If you want to be more dramatic, you can pretend to be searching for something, like you’re actually looking for his senses, then say, “that explains the problem, your senses are gone” or “what are we going to do now, I can’t find your senses” or “you’ve really lost your senses, and I can’t find them” if you want you can walk out after saying this.
“I’m Looking At The Difference Between…”
A good comeback to what are you looking at is to reply by saying, “I’m trying to find out the difference between you and the content of my garbage can, and I can’t find any” you can add gesticulations to the last part by putting your hands open a little forward and raising your shoulders.
Or you can modify it and say, “I’m looking for the difference between you and that banana peel I threw in the trash can, then pause for effect, then say, ” I can’t find any”
Here’s one very good response when someone asks, what are you looking at, “Nothing, just daydreaming about the days when you’ll be finally out of my life” be careful of using this one because the person might actually move away from you or leave your life, but you can freely say it to someone you really want out of your life.
“Haven’t Figured That Out Yet”
Another comeback when someone asks you, “what are you looking at” is to reply by saying “I haven’t figured that out yet” the other person will be confused with the reply and might be astonished too. Try saying it next time someone asks you such a question.
If someone asks what are you looking at, a good comeback is to say, “I’m just awed by how big your problem is, then you can shake your head pitifully and say, it’s really big” or, “I’m looking at just how big your problem is, and I’m shocked you let it grow this big” you can decide to pick any of them.
“That’s For Me To Know”
Another good response is to say, “that’s for me to know and for you to find out, then you can add, ” find out” or you can just say, “find it out yourself” or you can spice it by saying, “if you really want to know, you’ll have to find out yourself”
“If You Don’t Know…”
If someone asks rudely, “what are you looking at” you can reply by saying, “if you don’t know, then I’m sorry, I can’t help you find out” it has a kind of humorous tinge to it.
You can say, “isn’t it obvious I’m looking at you..” When someone asks you what you’re looking at, it makes the person look dumb, as its like saying he doesn’t know something so obvious.
If someone annoys you by asking, “what are you looking at” you can reply by saying, “how stupid you’ve grown to become” or “how senseless you’ve grown to become” if you don’t want to be too insultive, you can say, “I’m looking at a full-grown mess-you” anyone you think is better, you can choose to use.
“I’m Sorry! I Just Can’t…”
If someone asks what are you looking at, one good way to reply is to say, “I’m sorry, I just can’t stop looking at people with ugly personality like you” or “you know when I see people with an ugly personality like you, I can’t just stop myself from staring”.
This is a good comeback, especially for someone that has been a pain in your ass and who has probably been troubling you in one way or the other or who has a character you hate and might have been warning him/her about.
“How Far Your Senses Have Gone”
If someone asks what you’re looking at, a good comeback is to reply by saying, “I’m just looking at how far your senses have departed from you”.
Better still, you can say, “I’m searching for the distance between you and your senses, it’s very far” or “the distance it will take you to get your senses back, it has gone far from you.” It’s just a more effective way of saying, “you’re far from your senses.” You’re basically implying that the person is senseless.
“Are You So Dumb…?”
Another good reply is to say, “are you so dumb you can’t see that I’m looking at (insert anything in the direction of what you were staring at), for example, ” are you so dumb you can’t see that I’m looking at that flower vase” or you can as well say, “are you so dumb you can’t tell that I’m looking at you/your face”
“A Reason For…”
If a bully says, “what are you looking at ” give a hot reply of “I’m looking at the reason for your existent” or you can say “I’m trying to find out the reason for your existence.
“The Mistakes Your Parents Made”
Let me warn you that this comeback can be taken to be very offensive as people do not take their parents for granted and will appreciate it if you left their parents out of it.
Nevertheless, if you want, you can still decide to say it. If someone says ” what are you looking at” you can say, “I’m looking at the mistakes of your parents”.
Indirectly, you’re calling that person a mistake, the insult is directed towards him, not his parents, but in a way, you’re still saying his parents made a mistake by giving birth to him. It is a heavy insult and should be used with care as invariably, nobody is a mistake
When someone asks, “what are you looking at” you can say, “something ugly-your face” you can be more dramatic and gesticulate to pass the message well. Or you can just go ahead and call the person “ugly”
Another good comeback is to say, “not you, ’cause if it was, I would be blind by now” or “definitely not you. If it was, you would have noticed a sour feedback on my face.” This is an interesting comeback as it means that looking at him or her would make you have a sour expression that expresses dislike.
“You Would Be Much More…”
Another good response is to say, “you know you would be much more likable, if it wasn’t for that hole in your mouth that noise comes out of” or you can say, “you know you would be much more likable if it wasn’t for that hole in your face that you call mouth” though it’s kind of insultive, because it has a humorous undertone to it, it isn’t like to be offensive, friends around including the person you’re referring to is likely to laugh.
“You Know I Had This Awesome Dream…”
Another good reply when someone ask, what are you looking at, you can reply and say, “you know I had this awesome dream where you just just the f^ck up for once, and it was amazing, felt like I was in heaven” this is a very good response and you’re just indirectly saying “shut the f^ck up”
“Were You Talking To Me?”
Another way to answer when asked “what are you looking at, ” is to say, ” I’m sorry, were you talking to me? I can’t hear you over your ugly face” if you want to be less insultive, you can only say, “I’m sorry, were you talking to me? Definitely not.” As soon as you say that, return to what you were doing and pretend as if he never said anything.
“You Know If I wanted To Be…”
If you want to be a bit saucy when you’re replying, you can as well say, “you know if I wanted to ask like a bitch, all I would have to do, is to act like you” or you can say, “if I wanted to pretend to be a bitch, all I have to do is act like a bitch” it’s a subtle way of calling someone a bitch, although because of its subtle undertone, it would sound less insultive.
“You Must Have A Large Brain…”
A good comeback for “what are you looking at, is to say” “You must have a really large brain to hold all that ignorance” or you can modify it and say, “people with such a large mouth usually have a small brain, you know”
“I Wish I Had A Lower IQ”
Another good comeback if someone asks what you are looking at, you can shrug and say, “Nothing, I just wish I had a lower IQ, so I could enjoy your company more”.
It’s not every time when asked, “what are you looking at”, that you have to give a saucy comeback, you can also use it to flirt with a lady or a guy. For examples;
“I’m Admiring Your Shoe”
If someone probably asks what you are looking at, and you were actually staring at the person or admiring something he puts on, you can accept and say, ” I was actually admiring your dress/shoes/bag/hairstyle. Or any other thing worth complimenting about the person.
“Sorry For Staring”
This reply would be more suitable if you’re a guy saying it to a lady. You can first apologize for staring and say, “oh, I’m sorry for staring, but one doesn’t get to see an angel like you every day”
“I’m Trying To Memorize…”
Another flirty response is to say, “I’m just trying to memorize what you look like because I might never see such a beauty as yours again” or “I’m just trying to memorize your face, because I might never see anything as beautiful as you again”
Another good response is to say, “sorry, I was lost in your eyes” or “sorry, I was lost in your beauty”
“Something too beautiful…”
You can as well reply by saying, “something/ someone too beautiful for me to take my eyes off.”
