Would you rather put up with a phony or take a little abuse?

A cold phony - like a school teacher who can’t get to everyone and would lose her job if she showed her frustration. It can be a little bit of a relief to get sarcastic or use another form of humor to relieve the tension.
Teachers, or any public figures, are not God. We are in big trouble when we call individuals a supreme authority. It is irresponsible to call anyone God just because they have some knowledge in some field.

A little abuse or deceit I can live with. Full blown sociopaths, HELL no. I say this as the autistic leaning fellow who is still learning it’s best not to tell stupid and evil people just how stupid and evil they are. Indulging that habit makes my life more miserable than if I had just bitten my tongue and walked away at the first opportunity.
