It won't win friends

"Intuition tells me he is not overfond of me."
"You did treat him a bit cavalierly. Sarcasm is not exactly a means of endearment."

(from The Greene Murder Case, by S. S. Van Dine)

Philo Vance was exactly right in this estimation. One of the things that will make one dislike another person the quickest is sarcasm.
