Self Pity Sarcasm

Generally speaking, sarcasm is toxic.  Sarcasm poisons conversation, debate, and relationships.  However!!!  Once in a while sarcasm is an effective tool for dramatizing that which needs to change.  Here are a few sarcastic comments on self-pity:

The Pity Train has just derailed at the intersection of Suck it up and Move On,

and crashed into We All Have Problems,

before coming to a complete stop at Get The Heck Over It.

Any Complaints about how we operate can be forwarded to 1-800-waa-waaa.

This is Dr. Sniffle reporting live from Quitchur-Fussin.

I worked in the office at a hospital.  Many of us thought the hospital would have been a nice place to work it they did not have all those nurses and sick people.  You could hardly walk down the hall without hearing someone complaining in their most whining voice , “My leg hurts’.  Boo Hoo!!

The hospital opened a new Mental Health Department.  The patients whined around, “I’m depressed’, or ‘No one likes me’.   The attitude is infectious, the Nurses began whining, “I don’t like working nights”, or ‘I don’t get paid for this sh**!”

Cry me a river, build a bridge, and get over it!

Can we come to your self pity party?

I didn’t attend the funeral, but I sent a nice letter saying I approved of it.  Mark Twain.

If you ever become a mother, can I have one of the puppies?

He is a self-made man and worships his creator.

He loves nature in spite of what it did to him.

It is not necesssary to understand things in order to argue about them.

I’ll always cherish the original misconception I had of you.

Oh, you hate your job? Why didn’t you say so? There’s a support group for that. It’s called EVERYBODY, and they meet at the bar.
