Could it seem more hopeless to you because you're imagining the phrase being spoken instead of just reading it?  A phrase like that can seem kind of dreary when someone says it aloud; just reading or writing it could seem a little more generic... sometimes.

 
yeah its hard to not assume sarcasm in phrases that we are used to hearing it thickly portrayed audibly.  Remember that the words are written instead of spoken.  That's a good motto.  Interjecting intended emotion get us in a crap load of trouble on places like facebook too!

When did "I hope this helps" become the tagline for ending emails that are answering a question?



 
Answer every email that has that tagline with, "No, that actually didn't help". The replies you get may help answer your question.

Hope that helps.
