1) People think you’re being sarcastic when you’re not
Sometimes (very rarely) you can actually be serious.
2) It’s an automatic reflex in awkward situations
Which makes things even more awkward.
3) Sometimes it’s really hard to stop
Your mouth comes out with cynical things before your brain’s even thought them through.
4) You forget to switch off around people you don’t know
Er. Let’s hope you didn’t leave too much of a bad impression…
5) Your guy mates always call you ‘the funny one’
It’s cool, but maybe you could be ‘the hot one’ just once? Please?!
6) You sound plain mean in texts/on Twitter
Hey, it’s hard to get the tone across.
7) Your sarcastic demeanor’s got you in trouble a few times
You may have been accused of having an attitude problem. Oops.
8) You have a unique way of showing you care
Partners soon learn that they’ll never receive a slushy Valentine’s card from you. Vom.
9) It’s hard to admit, but you do use sarcasm as a defence mechanism
It’s much easier than revealing your insecurities. Or at least you think it is.
10) You will never understand those who don’t ‘get’ sarcasm
WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE?
11) You laugh at your own jokes
Because you’re basically a comic genius.
12) You’re not sure how to take compliments
A sincere ‘thank you’ just doesn’t come naturally to you.

13) Everyone always knows what you’re thinking
Annoyed at work? Angry at your boyfriend? Your facial expressions will reveal all.
14) You find it hard to get excited
Or if you are, you find it hard to show it.
15) Chandler Bing is pretty much your spirit animal
Could you BE any more similar to him?!
