I ask as the lad I have just now seems to be very clever and makes good use of irony or he's an idiot ! However, I am not sure if it is sarcasm or whether he is being genuine (to the extent that a lad can be anyway).

The most recent example of this perceived sarcasm is the following email:

Quote:
i can see that you're serious about this transaction.

thanks and good bye


this came after ten emails asking him to define specifically what he meant by address and ordering him to find the root of the word and translate it into 10 different languages. So, can a lad really do sarcasm?

I get a lot of sarcastic replies. I always take them literally and respond with a sincere thank you. I've actually saved a few that way.

While they may or may not be able to do sarcasm, they can definitely forget to type "not" or "'t", as i have seen frequently. This may have happened here Razz

I occasionally get a bit of sarcasm. The one that made me smile most was the following.

I'd been airing my suspicions for a while that I thought he was working with a colleague of mine to steal some charity funds, and when I refused to send a scan of some document he was wanting:

Quote:
It is such a pity now you need a postal address to send the tracer. What is the news this time, the scanner is stolen or what and I am the suspect?

The lad's i've encountered LOVE sarcasm:

Quote:
I refer you to the subject of my last mail " PLEASE LET ME KNOW YOUR NEXT STORY" I know that you are a story teller. Any more story? I will be glad to hear it.


The subject line was: And the Story Continues...

That's fantastic mugu humour!

Most lads just whine about problems with the MTCN - I do love the ones with a sense of humor. They generally stop laughing after a round of dollar chopping for some reason.

Back to the original question - yes, some of them have a very well developed sarcastic wit. Those are gold, keep them and cherish them and nurture them.

ceegood--

When the Lads start getting sarcastic and it seems like they are ready to bail, in some instances you can keep the bait going by being apologetic and/or misunderstood. Just as they are. Like Bayer Aspirin, it works wonders fast on headache solutions.

You will find quite often that these guys dont actually pronounce a "t" when speaking a word like can't, and so they type in the same way that the word sounds when they say it.

I have had lots of fun trying to get confirmation of whether my mugu can or can't do something.

It makes for a great deal of confusion and frustration which is very unfortunate... Twisted Evil

What Ivor said. He just didn't put a "not" in there. You still can possibly hook him by replying to the email and saying it doesn't make any sense.

Chipmunk has not gotten the sarcasm yet, but has gotten a few "good byes."

At least for Chipmunk, bye or good bye means they are done with you and won't write back.

As with all lad responses: ignore what they say and do what you want. At worst the lad ignores you; at best the bait continues. Between the worst and best case scenarios you might get some more sarcasm. Wink

But I tend to agree with Ivor and others -- your lad forgot the "not".

Here are a couple of my favorites. I didn't save this one, but I haven't given up yet:

a mugu wrote:
Oh! Tim I feel for you and I can understand that drugs can do better things now. I will make inquiry and see if some drugs can be airlifted straight to your doorstep by courier okay.


That was after I had sent him on a bit of a package chase.

the same mugu later wrote:
Sorry about it. I have put my SNAKES up for sale so that I can raise more money for your dopes. I am even thinking of buying incense so that you can inhale it and get inspirations.


I was only trying to get some Vicodin for Reprob8 and he got all cynical on me. I don't think he realized what a good cause that was. Wink

Nah, it means you should write the lad back and ask him if he's sure he wants to cancel the deal? After all, you were, of course, about to send the payment to him. Or, tell him it's ok, you recieved a better offer from a wonderful man named Charles Saludo. Wink
