    “You ain’t got enough camels!” is my favourite. I hope I´ll get to use it at some point! 😀

    Hahhaah this is hilarious!! So good 🙂 Loved reading this 😀


  3. Well I am really in agreement with the 18th one. But somehow none of these responses give me confidence enough to respond to cat callers right here in India. Looks like you are yet to travel through this place 😀

    I’m laughing hysterically at these, and might have to use some of them


  5. Hilarious although such a depressing thing to deal with. My favorite strategies: cursing, asking how they would feel if it was their sister/mom, and making really ugly faces.
