For habitually cynical folks, sarcasm is more than a sassy comment here and there - it's a full-blown language. Call it saucy, arrogant, or even bitter, the main goal of sarcasm is laughter, and it's usually at the expense of the listener (a.k.a. your parents). Sarcastic people have a bad reputation, but it's only because they're highly misunderstood.

Not everyone can speak sarcasm fluently as if it's their first language, but for those of you who can, these struggles will hit close to home. Here are the trials and tribulations that every sarcastic individual must deal with if they simply can’t figure out how to interact with people in a serious manner.

Your suffer from a severe case of RBF.


RBF (resting b*tch face) is a real humdinger, especially because you can't control it. People judge others primarily based on their looks, like the cover of a book, and due to your RBF, you come across as unapproachable and standoffish. Who knows how many potential friends and lovers you could have if you could only control that damn RBF.

You ruin sentimental, loving moments on purpose.


Silence is the kiss of death for sarcastic lovers. Sure, saying "I love you" is sweet and all, but there's no need to let all that sentimentality linger in the air. Sarcastic couples would rather fill the air with burps and farts. Anyone who says bathroom jokes are not funny is a liar.

You have a tight group of friends and have no interest in meeting other people.


This is why small talk is so draining for you: it’s so obviously dull that you'd rather not deal with it at all. Making new friends is hard work; it doesn't come from sitting in your room playing Star Wars: Battlefront all day. You need to put yourself out there and let your guard down - or else you'll wind up like the Grinch.

When you try and insult people you don't like, they think you're kidding.


There's nothing worse than insulting someone who thinks you're kidding. You could threaten to burn their house down or skin their cat and they still won't take you seriously. Sarcasm will get you far in life until you need to blackmail someone. Then, and only then, will you need to master the art of being sincere.
