Why Can't People Take a Joke?


I haven’t ranted in awhile about something. I hate when people can’t take a joke or sarcasm. Some people are so damn uptight. It’s just a joke lady, get over it. I am a very sarcastic person and I can’t help it, it’s my personality. If you can’t handle it then you can go fuck yourself. Go to the doctor and remove that large stick from your rectum because it is starting to ruin my day. There is a woman I work with that said she can take sarcasm but every now and then she flips out over something I say. It pisses me off. And then on top of that I try to resolve the issue and she doesn’t want to talk about it. I have to resort to emailing her how I feel and waiting on her response. What’s weird is that she is a really nice person in general but has a dark side. She is almost acting like she is my mother not that my mother is like that but she thinks she is my mother at work. 

If you have a problem with me, don’t lash out randomly at things I say, just tell me what’s what. Apparently things that I say jokingly come off as rude. Cry me a river. I don’t come across too many people that have a problem with my sarcasm and sense of humor. When I encounter someone that does, it bothers the crap out of me for some reason. I think “does everyone think this about me or is it just this bitch?” I don’t want to be disliked; I am very easy to get along with. I have a very high threshold for people fucking with me but a very low threshold for people not taking shit from me. I need to take a poll of people that I converse with on a weekly basis to see if me being rude is the general consensus.

Let’s start here. If you enjoy or dislike my sarcasm and/or sense of humor let me know in a comment but don’t forget to put in your two cents first. I wanna know how you feel about the situation before you tell me if you like me or not.

I agree with you. A lot.

I've never thought you come off as rude, but then again I offend people daily. ;)

Many people don't know how to take me. My daughter explained me to someone... if she likes you, she will talk, (sarcasm) if she doesn't like you, she is quiet. Worry when she's quiet.

I like your snark and sarcasm. A lot. It so happens though, that my mother IS like that, even if yours is not, so I will say this... it's not personal. They just don't get it. They are humor impaired and you need to train them with kid gloves to understand when you are joking and when you are not. It's a sad state of things, but there you have it. Treat these people with pity. They don't have much fun.

Hmm, let's see. I've only just 'met' you through the Fun and Games blogfest but to you seem at once brash and sensitive.

I think your easy use of expletives can be off-putting to some people, and that this can translate into said individuals misunderstanding your more fundamental nature-- which is one that does not wish to be at odds with others. When this is so, it gets under your skin and you don't really want to ever have to tell someone to go f*ck themselves, but it is a fairly easy defense to adopt.

I know you didn't ask for an analysis but this is what has flowed from my fingertips. Have a good day, Powdered Toast Man-- and may your jokes and sarcasm hit the right spot with those for whose opinion you care.

You annoy the hell out of me!
Just kidding. You don't offend me. I know snark when I see it. And snarking is good!

It's like we are twins. I have a real low threshold for people not taking shit from me. I'm with you, especially in the work place. Carry on.

Those who can't take a joke or enjoy a little sarcasm are uptight jerkoffs. That's what I say! :) Keep on being sarcastic and funny.

Feel free to throw it at me any day. I'll give lots of meaning less points for it :P Its sad that some people can't handle it but you must never stop. Because we said so.

Cheeseboy said...

I have no problem with you or your sense of humor. In fact, I like it.

Pat Tillett said...

Your sense of humor is good and it's funny! Just do what comes natural...

Baby Sister said...

My philosophy? You can never please anyone, so why try. On a very rare occasion things are a bit too much for me, but your sarcasm doesn't really bother me.
