Sarcasm in relationships

“”It is more time-consuming to decode than direct comments and one can never be 100% sure of what the sarcastic person means by his/her statement. Sarcasm is not a joke. Yes, it depends on the context and the relationship between individuals, among other factors, but it is rare that people take the time to think about whether all these factors suggest that the sarcasm will be taken effectively. Everyone will not stop being sarcastic; however, everyone can and should think about the implications and consequences of what they are about to say before they say it.””
