I know I'm not the best at detecting social cues but this is getting annoying
>sister tells me her bf is gonna live with us for the rest of the quarantine
>believe her because she's definitely the kind of person who'd let other people live at our house and our mom wouldn't care anyway
>"haha you couldn't tell it was a joke??? you're so dumb lol I can't believe you fell for that"
>friend invites me to a social event
>tell him I'm on my way
>he starts yelling at me on the phone because apparently I misunderstood him and I was supposed to be there an hour ago
>he sounds so angry I legit thought I was late
>feel bad and apologize
>"omg I was joking idiot hahaha"
>friend tells me she just bought a new super expensive monitor
>tell her that's cool and ask her stuff about it
>"it was a joooke xd I didn't buy it haha dummy"
what is the purpose of this, these jokes aren't even funny all they do is make me feel like an idiot for trusting people
Yeah sounds mean spirited or just dumb. I don’t think you’re in the wrong. You just have unfunny family and friends.
Sounds like you're either missing something in their tone of voice or realising that it's their personality to do this OR they are all just jerks and you're reacting normally. I think it could be the latter if that's how they react when you fall for it. Nice people don't try to make their friends feel stupid.
Just start saying "yeah right bitch" to the people you know are capable of pulling this shit. If you correctly call them on their bluff they won't get offended.
If they get offended it's bc you need to let them learn the hard way that The Boy Who Cried Wolf was indeed a cautionary tale.
Even if they start saying it's true just blow them off until they either admit it was a bluff or start asking if they've upset you (they have) and apologize.

the fuck kind of friend is that
lol this is how you become known as a crazy bitch.
if you have trouble grasping sarcasm, let people like your bf and sister know that, since they keep confusing you
