Sarcasm is a sharp, bitter, cutting expression or remark; a bitter gibe or taunt. Some are downright insulting, while some are rude but at the same time humorous. It also depends on when the remarks are made – the circumstances, the situation, the context and who they are directed at.
Sometimes, people are momentarily stunned by a sarcastic remark. They are not sure whether whoever said it is being funny, or whether they are being rude. They do not know whether to laugh, or to feel insulted.
Sharpen your wit, and you will be able to get away with insulting people who take the piss out of you, without they even realizing it. Doing that with a smile will help.
