This is how you know sarcastic people have really taken over and the days of meeting polite nice people are long gone.
These phrases we once knew to be sweet and genuine are now used to satisfy ever sarcastic person. You can’t say anything now without someone thinking you’re being sarcastic and rude.
1. "Thanks a lot."
Remember when this phrase used to mean that you were really thankful for what someone did? Now this means, you did something that affects me negatively, so thanks a lot, you jerk.
Even, if you try to say it nicely, chances are it won't come across that way.
2. "That'll be the day."
Whenever someone has a crazy idea that is completely ridiculous or far-fetched, you've probably said: "that'll be the day." When you say this you're telling them that it will never happen and the day will never come.
Literally, no one uses this phrase positively or with an ounce of hope, but if you think about it, it sounds hopeful.
3. "Yeah, right."
When someone says something you agree with, you can say "yeah" and you can say "right," but if you say those two words together than the meaning completely changes.
4. "Surprise, surprise."
If you say surprise once, you're at a surprise party, you say it twice and it is probably because an obvious occurrence happened and you must point it out in the way your sarcastic soul tells you to.
5. "Great, terrific, fabulous."
Nothing like repeating a bunch of exciting adjectives to let people know something annoying happened.
If you hear someone saying "great" in a monotone voice, you know it's probably sarcastic, but it's not really clear. If they continue to spew out more such as "terrific" and "fabulous" and appear to get angrier, that’s how you know. The happier the words you use and the more you use, the worse the situation is.
Did you lock yourself out of your apartment? Accidentally burn dinner? Cheated on by your boyfriend? GREAT-FABULOUS-TERRIFIC-AMAZING-WONDERFUL.
6. "Good luck with that."
This is a subtle way, to let someone know that they have a terrible idea that will most likely have a horrible outcome. If you were to simply say "good luck" they just might think your encouragement was sincere, but when you add "with that", your opinion of this person's plan is heard loud and clear.
If you are enjoying a story or some new information someone is giving you, telling them it's fascinating is one of the worse things you can do. Fascinating is supposed to be a word that means intriguing, interesting, spellbinding even. However in the world today, the world of sarcasm, it means the story is lame and boring
If you say this word and this word alone during a story, you alerting the storyteller, that they should stop, you're not interested.
Sarcasm makes the world go round. One of the key ways to make someone laugh is to give them an answer they aren't ready for. This is what sarcasm does, which is you need at least one sarcastic person in your life.
