    as if


    < as if >
    ▪ “She's afraid you might try to take the job yourself.” “As if I ever would!” [=I never would]
    ▪ “He'll never come back, you know!” “As if I cared!” [=I don't care]

    Are there any other examples of as if, which is used in spoken phrases to say that something is not true, will not happen, etc.?

    Thank you.
