More commonly known as I.A.S., those who are afflicted with Intermittent Asshole Syndrome are known mainly by their lack of a filter between the things they think, and what actually comes out of their mouths. I.A.S. is in the "Foot in Mouth Spectrum" of disorders and is highly contagious.

Once encountered, I.A.S. can take weeks or months to become evident or it may have acute onset, taking only moments. Sufferers are cynical, critical and vindictive on an intermittent basis. The sydrome is fairly common among management personnel and security and law enforcement officers. Intermittent Assholes are generally very likeable, fun-loving and sweet people. Alcohol typically intensifies symptoms. Some people with I.A.S. believe themselves to be very funny, and infact some truly are. Contact with customers or the public in general tends to exacerbate symptoms and increase the frequency and intensity of outbreaks.

True sociopathic behavior is not associated with I.A.S..

Treatment is still in development.
Sorry I cracked a joke when you told me something personal and expected me to take you seriously. My Intermittent Asshole Syndrome has been acting up
