At what point you cannot anymore hold your sarcasm? Just this morning I read one of the wall post on facebook and I felt like the only thing left in me was sarcasm...I need to be sarcastic sometimes when I feel like someone is too busy comparing herself to me...when she knows it is impossible for her to be me... My fellow myLotters...like you I am also human, and I am not a Saint that there are times I need to literally express how I feel towards my detractors. Let me hear something from you to let me know that I am not alone feeling like being sarcastic sometimes...Thanks ahead.

hi mack, sorry to say this. but i don't think you should be as 'low' as her. take a look at your achievements, your potential for further success and your purpose in life. you are a high self-esteemed person and highly self-motivated which you know she doesn't come close enough. if it really bothers you, like what the discussion says, the least you could do is to delete her. take care please and have a nice day ahead :)

Hi tom, I am very grateful of having you to advise me what is good for me to do...And I am sorry too that I became RUDE & SARCASTIC to that person only for a day, I have deleted her anyway, but she kept on adding me like trying to really get in my way...I happened to delete her more than 5 times and she kept coming back and as a civil person I kept adding her so not to disappoint her, she wanted to get updates about me and just the other day I exploded that I really became as LOW as her...that I really burst her bubble in one full explosion then deleted her after...:) Thanks for the advice tom...Happy Sunny Sunday to you...:)

mack, as much as i remind myself we shouldn't allow anything like this to affect us and our families, it's worth reminding each other again. we do make mistakes, yes. but what's done is done. just ignore her. i think we should focus ahead from now on. i keep reminding myself a lot too. take care and have a wonderful sunny sunday too.

I'm not that sarcastic. Although it's just interesting how facebook can influence someone. I have a friend who got into a fist fight cuz of facebook. I was also influenced by it. A friend of mine in fb, not in real life, kept posting hate msgs in all caps. My solution: i removed her. Problem solved.

I talk to people with respect even if I'm angry at them. I only become sarcastic when talking to my closest friends because they know me fully well that I have no intentions of hurting them.

I am sarcastic only to people who are pretending to be somebody that they are not wanting them to realize that they are only dreaming an impossible dream (though it's no longer my business minding them but hoping to help them a little perhaps)...Most of the people I get along with I gave them exactly the respect that they deserved. Being sarcastic doesn't mean you lose respect to people who deserved it. Why would I be sarcastic to my friends? Knowing that they are my friends and they don't deserved of my sarcasm...I am just being so true to myself that sometimes I need to be mean and rude to few people who I think they deserved it. Thanks for your opinion Saranggola...:)

Hello mackiejp, I would not change my character for any social site or for guys either. If they cannot handle who you are then I ask you this question? is it really worth haveing them as your friends? If it was done in a joking way and you know these people persoanlly I would just shrug it off. You seem nice and educated so I would let it be. Personally I do not like sarcastic people... they can get on my nerves because life is not all about jokes and it would be nice for people to show there emotional side to see if they really care or have a heart. Thanks and Have a great weekend Sincerely unqiue16

I am rude when it is necessary for me to be rude and only to those who deserved it, sometimes even good people have their own extent when to give in...I have done conquering my anger and I know I have defeated my enemy by just being silent.There are situations that we are required to be sarcastic for us not to be like a downtrodden person. Yes, it is nice to show that we have a heart but only for those people who deserved for our goodness. Not all people are on our side... Thanks for your share of thoughts...happy weekend too...:)
