When sarcasm is your first language, it presents some unique challenges with communication. Sometimes you wish you could change and make it easier, but most of the time you're okay with your sarcasm because it's part of your personality. You know how to keep it real. Kind of.
If sarcasm rolls off your tongue without you even having to try, then you've dealt with all of these struggles.
- You roll your eyes without knowing you're doing it.
- You sometimes forget that you can actually hurt people's feelings with your sarcasm.
- Your friends and family know not to take anything you say too seriously.
- Although they sometimes accuse you of being sarcastic when, for once, you're not trying to be.
- You have a hard time biting your tongue when you know you should.
- But you still have to try when you're talking to someone who doesn't really know you yet.
- You've been called an asshole once or twice.
- You'd probably describe yourself as something of an asshole though, so it's okay.
- People never seem to know when to take you seriously.
- You think everything you say is hilarious but some people have a really hard time getting it.
- You feel awkward when you have to be sincere.
- You have had to apologize for perceived rudeness more than once in your life.
- You sometimes realize you're being a little rude, but you just can't stop it.
- You grow frustrated with children and people who don't understand sarcasm.
- You would kill for some sort of font that indicates sarcasm so you could use it in emails and text messages.
