I am a very sarcastic person
I am a very sarcastic person and have always been this way. Whether it stemmed from early rejection or a deeply troubling childhood and adolescence, I’ll never know.
My sense of humor has often been called “mean” and “cynical.” I’ve had nicknames such as “The Misery Chick” and “Sarcasmo.” My constant barrage of sarcastic word vomit has landed me in hundreds of awkward situations and arguments that inevitably are worsened by my chronic sarcastic word diarrhea. It seems that even if the timing is really inappropriate, I can’t help but find some way to make fun of it.
I even partly blame my attitude for my most recent breakup (though it may have also been my detailed James Brown mug shot chest tattoo that scared him.)
In any case, I am going to college soon and I was wondering if you could give me any advice on turning down the sarcasm. I don’t actually hate people (not REALLY anyway,) and I do want to make friends and show professors that I’m not the miserable smart ass my mother says I am.
Try your best to reply, I understand the effort of which is extremely strenuous.
It is a delight hearing from readers like you who spend time to come up with such original problems to submit to the Sarcasm Society; after all, who would think to seek help regarding sarcasm from the Sarcastic Sage. Now, I am not saying that you don’t have an actual problem; you do, but it’s not being too sarcastic, it’s being too original.
As far as sarcasm and college are concerned, you don’t have to be worried about alienating people. College is the perfect place to be nihilistic and a jackass, especially if you are going to be majoring in some kind of artistic field or even writing or philosophy; people in those fields are expected to be miserable smart asses. Plus, your originality problem will also be resolved since you’ll be required to stop thinking for yourself.
