First, let’s look at the definition of ‘Situational Irony’:
Situational Irony – The irony that most people think of. A difference between what you expect to happen (in a story, for example) and what actually happens. Rain on your wedding day would be a sort-of example, because a wedding day is generally expected to be a perfect, happy day. The good advice you didn’t take, however, would NOT be irony, because that has nothing to do with what is expected and what isn’t expected. A traffic jam when you’re already late wouldn’t be irony either; there’s no automatic expectation that traffic will be fine, just because you happen to be late.
–Urban Dictionary (Yes, a valid source of information #mindyobidness)
And an interesting example of situational irony (outside of the awesome Alanis Morrisette song), you ask?
Writing a post blasting Facebook and then checking your stats the next day to find a weird spike and then noticing a massive amount coming from Facebook?
Uh, excuse me?
So you’re saying that the post I wrote about how much Facebook annoys me was shared by several people on Facebook?
Irony defined. I can die laughing now.
Dude! This rant about Facebook just HAS to be posted to Facebook, yo!
Put. The. Keyboard. Down.
I'm just living minute to minute, hour to hour, day to day.
