1. harsh or bitter derision or irony
2. a sharply ironical taunt; sneering or cutting remark: a review full of sarcasms.
Are you a fan of sarcasm? Are you a sarcastic person? I saw this the other day and it gave me a new meaning of sarcasm. I’d never thought of praise being sarcastic unless you fell or dropped something or just plain did a dumb thing and it looked funny. I’ve heard people say “way to go Einstein,” “no shit sherlock,” (a personal favorite) and stuff like that but I never really thought of that as being sarcastic. I guess I looked at “this type” of sarcasm more as teasing.
I feel like sarcasm is mean. I’m not a fan of it in general. I mean, I’m VERY sarcastic sometimes. Mostly with Paul because face it, when we’re with the same person all the time, it’s going to happen and he’s a huge “maker of stupid conversation because god forbid there ever be quite” person and he’ll be looking right at me and ask me what I’m doing!! With stuff like that, yes, I can be a b—h.
But if someone asks me a question I don’t say “Well YAH! when it’s dripping with D’oh!!!!! I think that’s mean. Or if you mispronounce something and people correct you. Or if you ask a question someone thinks is stupid, they make you feel stupid. That’s the kind of sarcasm I don’t like and find it quiet mean actually. If someone knows what you mean, why point it out and make them feel silly?
Do you think people like to point out others mistakes because it makes them feel superior? Or smarter? Or mean? Or what? Why do you think people will point out every mistake others make? Just why do you think some people are this way and other’s aren’t? Are you sarcastic and if so, in which way?
