Sarcasm? Have you ever heard of this word before? If you are not sure about sarcasm, let's read this explanation from WIKIPEDIA:
Sarcasm is “a sharp, bitter, or cutting expression or remark; a bitter jibe or taunt.” Though irony is usually the immediate context, most authorities sharply distinguish sarcasm from irony; however, others argue that sarcasm may or often does involve irony or employs ambivalence. Sarcasm has been suggested as a possible bullying action in some circumstances.
This morning on my way to work, I was so stunned to hear an old lady who gave a nice sarcastic remark to some people in LRT. This old lady was on her way to KL Sentral. So, from Taman Bahagia station until Taman Paramount station (which is just one station away), she was waiting for somebody to give her a seat especially at the seats where senior citizens, disable people or pregnant ladies should get the priority to sit but nobody even bothered to given away any seat. Maybe she became impatient when she suddenly said, "You guys should know how to read the sign and understand what it means!". Those people who were seating at the hot seats looked quite disturbed and one of them gave away his seat to the old lady.
See, SARCASM really works if you know how to use it during the suitable time. I respect the old lady for voicing out her dissatisfaction. If she didn't say anything, she would have to stand all the way to KL Sentral which is about 7 stations away from Taman Bahagia.
