There's such thing as a "Sarcmark" which is recognized as the punctuation mark for sarcasm, though it's not widely used due to a copyright. I think either italics or putting one of these; "~", at the end of sarcasm, is the best bet to end internet miscommunication.
Guys the first comment WASNT SARCASM no one on fml understands what the word sarcasm means and it's actually driving me insane. what he said was a joke. sarcasm is where you mean the opposite of what you say in a condescending manner. seriously everyone needs to stop throwing the word around like pretentious douchebags. sorry.
I hope you someday realize the fallacy of what you've said here. At least you didn't use ""literally" insane", but still.. I'm almost willing to say that your last comment was ironic too, as long as you haven't realized the ridiculousness of it, it may well be.
Ok I get I sounded pretty pretentious.. i take that back. but why is no one else annoyed by this? and how come my second comment was down voted? (like, just out of curiosity)... how come it's not ok to make grammatical and spelling errors yet half of fml users are using the word "sarcasm" in the wrong context when trying to act like a smartass and then they get up voted, when they look like a serious dumbass. is there actually no one else who is annoyed by that? I'm genuinely confused. or does the US have a different definition for "sarcasm"?
hold on... do you think I'm wrong? its definitely not sarcasm. it's exaggeration. There's a really big difference. There isn't even a hint of irony in his comment? A friend of mine once said the difference between American humour and Australian (or british) humour is that Americans don't understand sarcasm. We think sarcasm and dark irony are funny and Americans think exaggeration is funny. And each to their own, of course. I can't believe how right she was though.
Well I guess she is a *puts on sun glasses* *says in anti joke voice* the devil *runs away because joke makes no sense and becomes potatoe*
I'm pretty sure you could still successfully walk if the furniture was moved a couple inches
If you've lived in a house with the furniture in a certain position for a long time your mind automatically clicks to where the items are positioned. A few inches can make a lot of difference when trying to walk around and avoid bumping into objects, especially at night time. If your brain has learnt where objects are in the house and you can walk around and avoid them at night due to memory of where the item is and it's moved a few inches it can cause problems. It's happened to me in the past. If the items were moved to a completely new place where it's very very obvious to OP that they have been moved, that's a different story but they've only been moved a few inches. You'll understand when it happens to you
Yeah, siding with 11 too. Unless you're blind this shouldn't have caused a problem. After the first time I stub my toe, I start to watch out. Even before that point, don't you know to watch where you're walking? This plan should only have worked at night. This one could be a YDI in my book.
Totally agree with #11. If you can see, then this is entirely your own fault. Whose furniture is in the exact same place constantly anyway? Surely at least things like chairs move slightly (unless they're bolted to the floor), and I presume you don't walk into them everyday
