8 Reasons Why Everyone Needs A Sarcastic Best Friend
Some of the funniest, best people around use sarcasm as a central plant of their sense of humor.
It doesn’t necessarily mean they don’t like you (though it certainly can, be careful), but the sarcastic jabs they send your way should make you smile and laugh! Here are 8 reasons why everyone needs a sarcastic best friend.
1. They won’t sugarcoat things.
Sarcastic people keep it real, so to speak. They’re not afraid to give you a verbal slap in the face if you’re acting a fool and really deserve it. It’s not often that they’ll sugarcoat things. You should expect to hear the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. Trust me, it’ll be better for you in the long run.
2. They’ll never get offended.
In the same way that your sarcastic best friend will give you what you deserve, they can take it right back. They handle feedback, even when it’s pointed and harsh, with grace and dignity and won’t be offended if you decide to speak your truth. If you ask me, that’s a critical trait of a best friend.
3. They make you think outside the box.
Sarcastic friends don’t just call you on your BS, but they call out your insecurities and push you to think outside the box and get outside of your comfort zone. You’ll find yourself feeling emboldened by their sarcastic sense of humor and realize that they’re right there with you every uncomfortable step of the way!
4. They’ve always got your back.
It’s a simple fact of life that there are going to be people you think are your friends who in reality are out to get you. They’ll talk behind your back and say awful things. Sarcastic friends are some of the most loyal friends. If they hear of any back stabbing behavior, not only will the tell you, but they’ll give the backstabber a piece of their mind. Your sarcastic best friend will stick by you through thick and thin.
5. They make a great wing man/woman.
Sarcastic people are just plain funny. So why wouldn’t you want a sarcastic best friend by your side when you’re hitting the singles bar? They’ll make you, and your prospective date, smile, and laugh. They’ll also drive the not so great people away with their pointed sarcastic barbs. It’s the best of both worlds!
6. They never filter themselves.
Having a best friend with no filter sounds like it could be a recipe for disaster, but that lack of a filter may be your best possible ally. Sarcastic people tend to fend off the jerks, the narcissists, the abusers, and the manipulators. These people who would do you harm are no match for a sarcastic best friend. Your bestie will tell it like it is, which is scary for people who want to manipulate and harm.
7. They aren’t afraid of offending you.
Your sarcastic best friend knows exactly where your buttons are and they won’t be afraid to push the hell out of those buttons if it’s needed. They aren’t worried about offending you if they know that what they’re saying is something you need to hear. And if you get offended, it’s your problem, not theirs. You’ll just have to get over it.
8. They can shut off the sarcasm when they need to.
We’ve painted the picture here of a sarcastic best friend who’s going to give it to you rough no matter what, but they know when to shut it off too. If you’re experiencing a terrible tragedy, they won’t be sarcastic at you. They know better than that. They will be kind, thoughtful, understanding, and accommodating because they love you.
What they won’t do is let people harm you, abandon you when you need them the most, and sugarcoat their words if they’ve got something you need to have said to you.
If you have a sarcastic best friend, hold on to them and never let go.
