Sarcasm is awesome; Not! (Well, sometimes; when it's not directed at you; true?) We all may use sarcasm at some-point, when we communicate. Some individuals use it, more than others. It's a subtle form of communication, that delivers the genuine truth, only if the receiver of the message is discerning enough to catch the clever form of (a typical) effective manipulation method. The sarcastic message originator, may be just as clever as a comedian. Simply watching sitcoms, can offer insight into the genius of cleverly laid out sarcasm. For passive-aggressive individuals, sarcasm may be a primary (relied upon) method for manipulating others. All-in-all, sarcasm may be a type of humor, to utilize for fun, or to utilize as a communication buffer, when things get unpleasant, and we need to cover. If you can appreciate sarcasm, (or not), can you please share your thoughts?

There's always a time and place for everything I guess. My ex-husband was ALWAYS sarcastic. It was funny at first, thought he was so witty, then it got annoying. It's very frustrating when you don't know what someone's genuine feelings are. And if ends up excluding somebody from some type of inside joke, well that's just mean and childish. Geez, I think I'm getting carried away...do i have some deep seated resentment??

Me and my friends are always so sarcastic with each other, only problem is you never know when one of us is being serious about something silly haha I don't mind sarcasm, it's fun, but I should maybe tone it down a little.

I like to use Sarcasm, because it is a way to insult dumb people without them noticeing it, haha! Sometimes my sarcasm is on a such hugh point that people won't get my sarcasm and think I really mean it, that's funny to hear haha !
