    I dunno if it's immature in and of itself, but people who are regularly sarcastic tend to be insecure ime. Especially those people who are proud of their sarcasticness, and even characterize themselves as being sarcastic people. They tend to be either young or unfunny.

    Personally I hate the word "immature" and the idea that it can be meaningfully measured.

    Sometimes people need a wake up call. Sarcasm can do that like nothing else.

    I've seen here on TypoC that some people equate "passive-aggressive" with "immaturity," and sarcasm is a hallmark passive-aggressive way to counter a point.

    Besides, it's not like they have anything on them that makes them any less "mature" than you, right? It's not like anybody can return criticism on their thoughts and actions, too. No other critics like him in the world, right?

    I've heard it stated as the "Law of the Boomerang": "Always treat others as you'd have them treat you, because your actions are like boomerangs. Someday they'll come back to you."

    Anybody unfamiliar with the quote...Patch the Pirate Down Under. It's a Christian audio adventure for kids voiced mostly by kids. And it attracts small kids like moths to flame. And I've heard devoted would-be Baptist preachers describe the result as a "level of hell." And it's part of a series just one short of 30 unique 7 gift boxes.

    Immature means so many different things to so many people. Do you think it's immature? If so, why? If not, why?

    Immature is a very specific word and cannot be loosely applied something as general as sarcasm.

    Yeah sarcasm is immature, and there are way too many mature people for my taste.

    I LOVE sarcasm. I'd rather be immature and sarcastic than too dense to pick up on sarcasm. Or worse yet a [insert derogatory word] that doesn't appreciate sarcasm.

    It can be overused though. But it's great in doses.

    Not sure if I'm sarcastic or not now.

    If I buy a tasty Hostess apple pie....
    FRIEND: You gonna eat that?
    ME: No, I'm gonna take it home and sell it on EBAY, why?

    My friend is driving us to a concert...
    FRIEND: The directions say to turn left, so I guess I should turn left?
    ME: No, go right, maybe Google is just fucking with you.

    I'm smoking in a designated smoking area at a theme park...
    STRANGER: I personally think that's a disgusting habit.
    ME: What? Pushing your opinion on someone who obviously doesn't give a shit about it? Yup, terrible habit.

    A friend is rushing me to finish a project he was supposed to do...
    FRIEND: Um, can you like, you know, speed it up please??
    ME: Um, can you like, you know, eat a dick?

    My Mom is tying about three knots in the garbage bag to be placed on the curb...
    ME: Why are you tying so many knots?
    MOM: I don't want the animals getting into it!
    ME: Yeah, because that's how Racoons get into garbage bags, by untying knots.

    I don't know if that's sarcasm or not, nor do I know what this says about my maturity level. All I know is that I enjoy.

    It can be. Depends on the context.

    I usually only break out sarcasm when I'm incredibly angry. To tear someone's actions down. To make them feel stupid. So, my usage would be really immature.

    No. It's not. It's a beautiful thing that can be used in beautiful ways.
