The use of Sarcasm will be the downfall of this country.Studies show
that people who resort to sarcasm are less educated, have higher golf handicaps,
are more prone to illegal drug use and have ugly spouses.By
contrast, those who refrain from the use of sarcasm are often taller, have less
pattern baldness, and have well adjusted pets.Ok, I am off to
collect my welfare check and try again to finish 6th grade.
Sarcasm is only mildly funny at best. At worst, it's insulting.
Sarcasm really isn't useful, especially in written form. Never use it, and stay
away from people who do. They end up causing problems no one needs to deal
with, and create a reputation for your organization as being unprofessional.
International business aside, I know a young couple who are experiencing serious
marital difficulties due to so much of their day-to-day communication, by
necessity, occurring via texting; where tone and delivery are not clear. I am tired of people I know who believe they are actually in-the-know
about current events when all they tune in to is Comedy Central and Jon Stewart.
Frankly, I am sick of sarcasm, its overuse today, and the damage it
does. As a person of 50+ I can honestly say that every person Ive ever known
who heavily relied on sarcasm has led quite an unhappy/unfulfilled life.
Sarcasm seems closely related to misery.
