Well, how to put it in the right words. Frankly speaking, when people around me jabber a lot, I get exasperated. Sometimes, we can’t just shut them off, so we have to deal with a little intelligence you know. You got me there, I am talking about sarcasm only. It is a smart formal way of telling someone what we actually want.
When You Know It’s The Only Way To Escape
“Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.”- Steven Wright
Just another day, I was flying to Delhi and had The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho to accompany me. I have a habit of getting engaged in gluttony every time I read a book. The person sitting beside me had no clue what right to privacy is. “Yet despite that look on my face… you are still looking into my book and talking.” There, I said it and I know that’s a good one. It is rightly said, the squeaky wheel gets the grease. No one can help you if you can’t really speak for yourself.
The Actual Phenomenon
Sarcasm isn’t just about being funny. Both ends of the conversation, the sender, and the receiver must have a sense of humor and should have trust between them. The comments made should not be taken in a literal way because they are not meant to hurt anyone.
The Three Miraculous Types Of Sarcastic People
1. The Bearable One
When you are too polite to shout at someone but frustrated enough to be an impeccable human being. “I wish I could but I don’t want to”–Yes, you got me there.It is Phoebe from F.R.I.E.N.D.S
2. The Smart One
When you get habitual of being the straightforward one instead of being the patient one. This is an intermediate stage of Sarcasm.
“Welcome to the real world. It sucks. You’re gonna love it.”-Monica
3. The Don’t Care Ones
When you just put the whole world after your relief, it means you have excelled all the stages. “I am not so good with the advice… Can I interest you in a sarcastic comment?” -Chandler Muriel Bing(My personal favorite)
The Incredible Benefits
According to me, It seems to be the highest form of intelligence. It is used to humorously convey your problems and it increases your creativity without raising conflicting issues on the other hand. If someone isn’t able to detect the funny part, I feel sorry for you ;-). Could I be more helpful? ( Chandler’s line right). “It’s a sarcastic comment. You get it, you kill me“(Not in reality, sarcasm also creates a positive attitude between friends).
Perhaps, it’s the way the words are bound together still making a respectable appearance. I love it because it assists me to say anything I want to, but people think I am joking. It’s an art, an art to express your views without intimidating others.
People laughing at you or people laughing with you, which one sounds better? , the latter one obviously… appreciating criticism and jokes are must to maintain stability in your relationships
The Satirical Inference
It’s funny to be humorous, crazy to be outstanding, creative to be smart and awesome to be sarcastic. “Need money for college. Need college for a job. Need a job for money. Who was the mastermind behind this system?”Be satisfied, be straightforward as the fortune favours the bold.
