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.
