My Future

I have a strong feeling that my demise will come about by my being sarcastic in the wrong place, at the wrong time.  I don’t have a crystal ball or anything, but let’s just say it wouldn’t be a big surprise if my obituary were to read: passed suddenly after a brief confrontation in which she just could not keep her smart-ass comments to herself.

  1. I dunno, I kinda LIKE your smart-ass comments 😉 But yes, sometimes we (I’m including myself in that) have to “shut up”, there is a time and a place for everything… But I can’t help to think we should be allowed a little bit of smart-ass comments now and then 😉

    • Thanks! 😀 Not everyone finds my sarcasm amusing. Shocker, I know. 😀 I try hard to contain myself but it just doesn’t always work. It’s a constant work in progress. And I agree — our tongues would be very sore indeed (from all the biting) if we didn’t let some of those smart-ass comments out once in a while. 🙂

  2. The world could use a lot MORE sarcasm, in my opinion
    …if not only because it’s so corrupt, full of double standards, and all-around poorly managed (and poorly designed as well).
    Sure, being flippant with the wrong person at the wrong time in the wrong place can have devastating consequences. But what is one supposed to do? Stay eternally quiet, NEVER have the right to express themselves simply on the premise that their thoughts, feeling, attitudes, or viewpoints are somehow “improper” or “inappropriate”?
    Are we to just “keep everything inside”?

  3. Been there, done that! I’ve learned the hard way that you flip people off on the LA Freeways at your own risk – there are psychos out there. But that’s more road ragey.

    As for “snappy answers to stupid questions,” one of these days I’m going to give an honest answer to someone twice my size when they ask something like, “Do you think I’m a moron?!” Or worse, I’ll try to explain why that’s not what I think, but accidentally tell them something that’s hilarious to me (and the audience – there’s always an audience for a proper smartass performance) but possibly “misinterpreted” by them.

    See ya at the pearly gates!

  4. Yeah, the road rage I do try to keep under control cause you just never know. But I’m like you, one day I’ll answer a question or have a comeback for a statement with a not quite right answer (at least according to the recipient) and I’ll find myself floating up to heaven like in the Looney Tune cartoons. At least I hope it’s upwards… LOL
