There's more to people than their irritating foibles.  Like Doss,
I'd encourage you to stick it out a little bit.  Behind an act of
nastiness is insecurity.  Some people will not respond to kindness;
at least not during your time of interaction.  But you'd be
surprised at the number of people who do.

I do sympathize with you however.  People can be frank without being
sarcastic and insulting.  The only thing sarcasm does is look
clever, make communication harder and make people more defensive.
