I used to think sarcastic people were fun.  Apparently, I am a quite different now than when I was 14.  What I have recently noticed is that sarcastic people are usually expressing themselves in a highly negative way.  Who truly enjoys negativity?  Do people really seek out incredibly negative?  I certainly don't.  I think negativity is tied to anger.

I came across an article with an excerpt from W Robert Nay, PhD.  Apparently there are some signs to anger (he was referring to partners in a relationship, but I think this can be applicable in all situations, platonic, romantic, other, etc):
  1. Witholding - conversation or affection
  2. Sarcasm
  3. Contempt
  4. Name calling
So, if you meet someone like this...RUN.
