    What is the difference between snark and sarcasm? Anyway, I have received a few snark desist warnings, believe it or not.

    Back on topic, nowhere is safe from slobs. Do you think no one ever puked in the back of an Uber car? You just do your best and carry on. Over thinking this shit will make you crazy.

    Do you wear latex gloves when you gamble also? Money is dirty, machines are dirty, there are literally germs everywhere and the bus seat is the least of your worries. Your cell phone is the dirtiest thing you will touch all day! Just wash your hands and enjoy your vacation!

    There are bugs and there is gross. Someone evacuating where someone else soon will be is, at minimum, disgusting. It's a different tale when talking about degrees of germaphobia.

    I think of snark as witty, edgy commentary, usually without hostility, which may or may not be sarcastic.

    Sarcasm is saying one thing that intends the opposite, as in: my definition of snark is not pretentious at all.

    This concludes my input on this thread.

    I also sat in a wet seat at the casino... jumped up so quick- ewe.... I am leery of bus seats, airplane seats - but seldom worry about restaurant seats... I also am a little freaked with hotel pillows....

    We do have a rule against snarky posts:
    Examples are something like when someone asks what to do in Vegas with kids and you reply "Disneyland".

    It can be difficult to decide what is snark and what is sarcasm. I'd say neither of them are generally helpful to keeping the flow of the discussion ongoing, so.... yeah. It's the same with personal attacks. Sometimes one person's "good natured ribbing" comes across as a personal attack.
