Yeah, like I really want to write a blog today.
Sarcasm doesn’t translate well via the written word. Which is too bad, because sometimes I feel sarcasm is my natural state. I’ve often thought there should be a specific font for sarcasm. Or maybe a typing style. Like the second letter of each word capped. oH yEah, tHat wOuld tOtally wOrk. Maybe not.
You may ask: Tom, why do you feel the need to be so sarcastic? Is it a defense mechanism? Or do I feel you’re smarter than everybody else around you? And my reply would be: who cares why? Just deal with it.
But maybe I’m sarcastic because it’ll keep me out of jail.
Granted, it doesn’t mean that it won’t get me beaten up. But so far, I’ve been lucky. Because sometimes sarcasm can be very insulting to others.
If a battle of the wits does ensue, I’m fine with that. Especially if they think they have the upper hand.
But since I’m usually insulting people of, let’s say, lesser intelligence, it’s sometimes just as easy to deny that I’m actually being sarcastic.
I try to keep an open mind when chatting with people. But it can be really difficult sometimes. But it’s OK if somebody has an opinion that’s different than mine.
My sarcastic powers are not only used on stupid people, it’s used on people who like to suck up my time. You know, the kind of people who have a new drama every day. Yeah, nobody’s got time for that.
I’m not sure why friends still come with me with their problems. It’s not like they’re going to get any solutions.
With sarcasm, you can be mean to friends, but they just think you’re being funny.
And at work, I sometimes feel my job description should be Sarcastic Guy.
At times I can be a rapid fire sarcasm machine. And if I’m feeling generous, I may wear a shirt that’ll warn people what they’re up against.
And don’t worry. I’m not always sarcastic…
Below are some sarcastic shirts I’m sure you’ll really enjoy. I was being sincere on that one.
