Fun Monday:

Sauntering Soul is our lovely hostess this week and here is her assignment...
I know we all try to be sweet and kind to people the majority of the time. But let's face it....we also know that sometimes we can be a big jerk. It could be that you experience road rage from time to time. Perhaps you empty the coffee pot at work some mornings and don't feel like taking the time to start a new pot for the next person. Or maybe you don't return phone calls on a timely basis when you know someone needs a response from you. Have you ever "accidentally" ruined a favorite shirt of your spouse just because you didn't care for it? Come on - it's confession time! List the small things you do that make you a jerk and elaborate just a bit on each one. Please tell me I'm not the only jerk around here!
1st off I don't call my self a "jerk", I call it being "sarcastic", which at times I have been very good at. It's a family thing!
Definition: Expressing or marked by sarcasm. Given to using sarcasm.
Contemptuous or ironic in manner or wit:
As far as being sarcastic with family, it is usually done in fun. But I have been known to be very sarcastic in a few situations. I have even used my sarcastic humor to non family members with out thinking and have hurt some feeling with out meaning to. So I guess you could call it a blessing and curse.
Okay, I can’t think of nothing right at the moment, so here are a few videos to give you an idea. Hope you enjoy!



(I guess you would say my hubby is the "JERK" of our family, but I call him "MY Jack A**)

What is the Oscar Wilde quote ' sarcasm is the lowest form of wit' but most of us do it at times!

I love sarcasm - but have found that it is hard to use as a blogging technique. It is hard to write sarcasm, because usually when it is spoken, there is a certain edge to my voice. You just can't portray that in the written word. (because a lot of readers don't quite "get" it)

Well, I am a jerk because I have a closet crush on Bill. Lord he is cute and funny!

Entertaining approach to the prompt this week! I’ve shared poetically at Small Reflections because it was the only way I could.
Hugs and blessings,

Sarcasm is funny, but sometimes it can go to far I suppose. Mr B is a sarky git but I love him. :D

Don't call it sarcasm--just call it a sharp wit! Although sarcasm can be more hurtful that bigtime jerk behavior. Sadly, I fall in the sarcastic category as well.

taken sarcasm too far been there done that, and yet I've never seen you at the family reunions, you sure you got the right family.

I am soooooo into sarcasm! Most of the time it goes over fine, but there have been moments when I wanted to dig a hole and climb in it.

Be as sarcastic as you like darling! Like Karmyn says, we can't see you anyway! And young lady, I just happened to watch the world news last night and had a good look at your "little" storm! Talk about playing it down! I am so glad that it skipped over you! The damage was not pretty! And they say there is more coming, so be careful!

Hopefully it will stay away! Hugs xxx

Sarcastic is good unless someone is ticked at you. :)

I'm quite sarcastic. But, it definitely does not come off well on-line. :-) Sarcasm is soo not like being a jerk . . . right?
