When a straightie says "oh! your curly hair! must be so nice to just roll out of bed and go!"
"Well... actually, I get out of the shower, flip my head over, drip water all over the f'ing bathroom because if i don't put my products in and finger comb and scrunch at just the precise moment between soaking-wet and damp, I will end up with stringy tupperhair. Then i balance my head on the toilet while i wrap it in a cloth diaper because terry cloth towels pull the hairs up like medusa, and then I stand bent over under a diffuser for 30 minutes and then as soon as I walk outside in the wind or high humidity, I just wasted an hour. So THAT is why my hair is in a high up messy bun 95% of the time. Shove it, straighties. I just don't care to do it lately."

Lol yes the sentiment that I am able to just jump out of the shower/roll out of bed and have presentable hair is most irksome. I mean, this is usually after I tell them that no, I don't use a curling iron to get this... but it's not like I don't do ANY sort of styling.
Haven't gotten many comments that have bugged me yet, but one that stands out in my mind is from my jealous sister who has straight hair. She tells me that my hair is only curly because my mom got me a perm when I was a kid..... yeah sure... there's no way I have cut my hair in the last two decades......
I hate when people go what product do I have to buy to get my hair curly like yours? I'm like....I don't think a product exists like that considering I was born with this, but if you want to know how I define curls I already have then we can talk
