DL, what is the definition of ironical?

I work as a bartender in the NY tri-state area. Today, a woman, without a mask or scarf covering her face, walked right up to me and ordered two drinks. I made them for her, after which she thanked me and told me to "stay safe". Ironical?

[quote] i·ron·ic /īˈränik/ happening in the opposite way to what is expected, and typically causing wry amusement because of this.

Yes, I would say ironic is the correct word.

Ironical is a standard word—it is an alternative adjective form of irony—but it means the same thing as ironic. Ironical is the more old-fashioned form of the word, and ironic is the more common form today.

And, yes, it was ironic for her to say that.

No one uses “ironical” these days.

More like "hypocritical." (I.e., instructing OP to "stay safe" while customer, herself, is not being safe.)

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
