I’ve had this happen to me several times.
When you’ve just met a person, you’re still trying to figure out who they are.
They decide its good to reveal that they have a sarcastic personality and proceed to tell me something they think is so ridiculously outlandish that I will burst out laughing.
“Yeah.. because my parents are Christian Missionaries who are leaving for Australia tomorrow.”
Unless you say your sarcastic remark with a hilarious voice or facial expression, instead of the style of a deadpan sarcastic twat remark… why the hell would I assume you were being sarcastic.
Having Christian missionaries as parents is very believable.
The world can be a crazy place. Lots of unexpected things happen in life.
The temerity to now assume that I’m a gullible idiot who will believe anything because I didn’t catch your sarcasm?
“Well, if you knew me.. then you would know that what I just said was really funny.”
A lot of good that does when I’m just meeting you for the first time.
