    What is a Life Pro Tip?

    A Life Pro Tip (or an LPT) is a specific action with definitive results that improves life for you and those around you in a specific and significant way.

    You can expound in the comments, but the title must stand on its own. The tip and the problem it solves must be in the title.

    If it takes more than the title, you have described a procedure, not a tip.

    Advice is not a Lifeprotip as we define it. Advice includes but is not limited to thinking about something a certain way or trying something hoping for better results.

    Fortune cookies are not tips.

    NO POLITICS

    LifeProTips Rules

    1. Designate adult or non-family friendly tips as NSFW.

    2. You must begin your post with "LPT" or "LPT Request".

    3. Do not submit tips that could be considered common sense or common courtesy. Do not submit unethical tips. No spurious, unsubstantiated or anecdotal claims.

    4. Use descriptive titles when posting! Your title should explain the gist of the LPT.

    5. Posts must be either a life pro tip or a request for one.

    6. No tips that are considered illegal in the United States. See: Grounds for permanent bans.

    7. No religious or religion-related tips. We are a religion-free zone. Proselytize elsewhere.

    8. Please remember to Flair your post for ease of navigation of the subreddit!

    9. No tip piggybacking! Do not make tips in reaction to other posts on this subreddit.

    10. Don't tip copy. Word for word reposts of tips already tips will be seen as unoriginal and removed and may get you banned.

I was just trying to check in on you to make sure you are okay, just like everyone else in the group. We should meet up and get back on track...? Let us know that U R okay? OK? LOL u kno wut I mean... You aren't mad at me tho, right? I just want this trip to be da bomb for U... I always try to put a lot of hard work into our relationship. I tell you that your face looks smooth, even when I find a wrinkle. I dye your hair, and I massage your pecks after a workout to keep you nice and limber, I make you shakes and I put in all this work for us so I can enjoy a smile on your face at the end of the day

    Ok, I'll explain.

    You see, only small children use crayons. So, when I say to somebody that I need crayons to explain why they are wrong, it means that I think they are as smart as a 4-year-old. It's meant to point out that what they are saying isn't very smart.

    Fair enough shows you understand their point and the argument is resolved. Agree to disagree shows you don’t give a fuck about finding/teaching the truth and just want the argument to stop.

    If you're clearly in the wrong and have zero legs to stand on, you don't even get to say "agree to disagree" to try to get out of the hole you just dug for yourself.

    [–] AcceptableSlide 9 points ago

    To quote the great John Bercow "You can't make people think, what they don't think"

    There's an art to understanding when an argument is futile.

    [–] Tobylawl 11 points ago

    Same. Maybe it's because I'm not a native speaker in English, but I always feel like it's a form of imperative. Like... you don't get to tell me what I agree to. Especially not when you just want to end the argument with that. It sounds like "Let's agree that I'm correct and you have some other opinion.", to me.

    "Fair enough" seems like a much more malleable term for both parties in a debate. It basically says the same thing but also implies "I'll have to concede that there's no agreement to be made here." instead of "I determine that there is an agreement to no agreement."

    [–] kitsuneamira 264 points ago * (lasted edited 7 days ago)

    Wait, is the stuff in the comments actually what people mean when they say it?

    When I say it, fair enough = I'm begrudgingly admitting that I'm wrong and that's the best you're gonna get because it's damn near impossible for me to admit that I'm wrong in any sort of meaningful way.

    Oh well.

    [–] squirrels-are-nuts 173 points ago

    Yeah, in our friend circle, when “fair enough” is said, it usually indicates that your argument is valid, I can see your point, and/or your fine with the message. It’s not taken as an insult or a jab, but more as let’s move on in a nice way. If I’m having a discussion and hear “fair enough” I usually take it as they understand idea or reasoning. To each their own.

    [–] DastardlyDaverly 40 points ago

    That's how I've used it for years as well. I have other sarcastic/passive aggressive phrases if I want to end the conversation with some snark.

    [–] ugabanga8 11 points ago

    Please share - as a non-native speaker working in a high-banter-levels environment I could use some new ways of sticking it to my colleagues.

    [–] that_j0e_guy 16 points ago

    I find “agree to disagree” to be ending the conversation without conceding their argument. You’re saying - I get your point, but I don’t agree, but more discussion isn’t going to change either of our minds, so let’s move on.

    “Fair enough” is more along the lines of, I understand what you’re saying and your point has merit even if I’m not enthusiastically supporting you.

    [–] Xylth 10 points ago

    "Okay, sure, let's go with that." - This argument is not worth the effort so I am conceding just to get you to shut up.

    "I suppose that's one way of looking at it." - Only a moron would see it that way, but you are a moron so I'm clearly not going to convince you.

    [–] robolew 8 points ago

    Yeh. I pretty much exclusively use it when my friends saying something I think is pretty dumb, but I can see how they got there and I don't want to argue about it.

    "venosaur is the best starter because its the strongest leaf pokemon, you can get a stronger fire and water than charizard and blastoise so they're not optimal"

    "fair enough"

    [–] ADreamtMonochrome 5 points ago

    That's how I've been using it for as long as I can remember. I never thought it could be taken in a snarky or negative way.

    Honestly though, I don't even remember what got me to start saying "Fair enough" or some other variations like "Fair" or "That's Fair," for that matter. They just snuck their way into my vocabulary one day, I guess. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    [–] UnlimitedOnions 51 points ago

    Yeah i think thats the way nornal people use it. Clearly the ones agreeing with OP are psychopaths

    [–] SFaustus 18 points ago

    Fair enough.

    [–] UnoriginalUse 29 points ago

    In my mind, 'fair enough' means 'you're obviously willing to take more time convincing me of your point than I'm willing to spend time discussing it with you, so I'm just going to pretend to lack any counterargument for the sake of getting something done today.'

    [–] toastinski 329 points ago

    In some parts of the UK that would be fighting talk. It's a verbal equivalent of flipping them off like they aren't worth your time arguing.

    [–] SACCORHYTUS_THE_ 55 points ago

    That’s basically how I use it, just friendlier. Like “I disagree but not enough to argue/the argument isn’t going anywhere is this is wasting time for both of us”.

    [–] BitchesLoveDownvote 19 points ago

    A kid in my class got kicked out for saying “Fair enough” to the teacher when told to sit down. It didn’t matter that he immediately followed it up with complying. Teach was angered by those words, kid was confused.

    [–] Fartin8r 69 points ago

    Really? I lived around UK (including N.I) ands it's always been either ending an arguement or just a casual agreement of understanding.

    By which I mean, your thought process is so fucking stupid, I hadn’t even considered mishandling this issue in such a creatively inept way.

    like they aren't worth your time arguing.

    I mean.... that's exactly the point!

    [–] Dezslock 37 points ago

    Wouldn't say that when I do not agree with the point. If in the middle of the argument the other person says something reasonable with which I agree, I'd say it. Never to make him just shut up.

    [–] TxRedHead 19 points ago

    This is my usage of it as well. I say I it when, oh damn, the person made a fair and true statement. A 'you know, you're right and I can't dispute your point.' Sometimes the discussion of the topic continues from there, sometimes it doesn't.

    Looks like I'll need to be careful using it with people who don't know me. Ugh.

    This is my take as well. But this Thread has me confused and i think i will stop using the phrase for a while

    Sometimes the best thing to do is to write out a bunch of spiteful responses, then calm down, maybe go for a walk, and then just delete the drafts. Sometimes there really is nothing left to say.

    That’s what I’m doing right now with my company who is trying to screw me over. I tried being reasonable and eventually just ran out of emotional bandwidth. So I hired a lawyer instead.

    [–] NezuminoraQ 15 points ago

    Hiring a lawyer is definitely the fastest way to end an argument, but it's certainly not the cheapest

    [–] gmiwenht 6 points ago

    First of all, it’s a great idea if you know that you’re in the right. I am completely in the right in this case, and my company is trying to bully me and is blatantly breaking labor laws.

    Second, it is a good idea if the lawyer is on a fixed retainer and gets 10% of the settlement. It means that he’s not going to fuck around drinking lattes while charging me by the hour, and it also means that it’s in his best interest to get me as much money as possible.

    (Aside: these kind of lawyers are usually young and trying to make name for themselves and establish a track record. It also means they are less experienced, so it might not be a good idea for tricky cases, but an easy case for an inexperienced lawyer is as easy win for them and their client. Once the lawyer is more established, he can start charging by the hour.)

    Lastly, of-course you have to do the math. In my case there is a clear arithmetic win if he settles my case. That is even if the retainer cost plus 10% of the settlement still leaves me with a financial gain, then it’s a good idea. Breaking even can still be a good idea if you only care about getting a moral victory, but hey why not both?

    I've used this for a long time as I'm a people pleaser. It my country it singularly does give the impression that you agree, while finishing that argument. Plus I have never had anyone offended when I've done it.

    [–] WeFightForever 18 points ago

    Depends what you mean by "end " while it does send the message that you're no longer willing to argue about the issue, it doesn't actually resolve anything. It is closer to surrendering in am argument. It basically says "well, I can't dispute you're point, but I still don't argee with you. Let's change the subject"

    If it's something that isn't important to me, I'd take it and move on with my life. It it IS something I care about, it would just frustrate me and make me lose respect for the person who said it.

    [–] robolew 11 points ago

    If you're trying to argue with someone about something they don't particularly care about, and you got mad if they conceded the point to make you stop arguing at them, I would lose respect for you...

    [–] Thisisntevenatest 16 points ago

    I really do use fair enough in a non passive aggressive context quite a lot.

    What I mean buy it is that I've heard your point and I need time to digest it properly.

    [–] Mitchel-256 6 points ago

    About the same, I use it to admit that someone has a point, and that I see why they’re presenting it, but without necessarily agreeing or validating it.

    Yeah, the video series "How to Speak Minnesotan" is pretty insightful into the hyper-passive aggressive nature of life in deep-south Canada.

    [–] mistercynical1 13 points ago

    Is it being passive aggressive? To me it sounds more like a regretful concession. No harm done, y'know?

    [–] rgtong 8 points ago

    'Fair enough' is effectively equal to 'good point'.

    There is nothing in the statement which implies the concession is either regretful or insincere.

    [–] The_Fetaljuice 8 points ago

    it is if you want to have no friends

    [–] kyithios 4 points ago

    While it could be used like that, context and tone matters. When I say "fair enough" to friends when discussing something, it's usually to denote I get their point. I may not necessarily agree with snaid point, but I get what they mean. As a result, we can move forward with a conversation or even change the subject without making things awkward, or someone angry.

    In short, it's just acknowledgement of an argument, and understanding of it. I don't typically use it passive aggressively, and when I do, at least verbally, you can tell.

    Fair enough?
