Sarcasism

Things That Peeve My Pet

It makes no sense to say “I could care less”! That statement means that it is possible for you to care less, meaning that you at least care a little. What you really mean to say is, “I couldn’t care less”. I’m sure it is crystal clear to you now, but you could care less about what I have to say.

No That’s Not Ironic!

Once in a while (actually, it happens quite often) one runs across a coworker, acquaintance, or total stranger who uses words without knowing what they actually mean. For example, one time I had a supervisor who laughed at a coworker who was not familiar with the frescos of the Sistine Chapel. In breaking the news to this coworker, he said, “How can you not know what the Sixteenth Chapel is?”. At first I couldn’t believe my ears, but I composed myself, and tried to confirm what my ears had heard. So I asked him to repeat the name of the fresco. This time he deliberately pronounced each syllable slowly so that I could really learn; “It’s the Sixteenth Chapel”, he said.

Now what does the above story have to do with irony, you ask? Well, read the How to Recognize Irony tutorial to understand.
