  ...a insolent rejoinder, an insolent/rude retorter...why you always are back answering like this?    that is,  if you are talking about the way some kids and teens answer back to you, in  a muttering way.

 

    But chances are that the kid/teen is right, and you not so right.  Then you would have to reconsider your own attitude, then you would say something like "Why are you so intelligent?", or "Sorry, my bad!" he he he.
