Yeah, but whenever I sulk, my mom throws a whole shitload of psycho-babble at me, including "passive temper tantrum". Its annoying as hell.

At least she reacts. I used to sulk, especially public sulking. I've done the silence, the short answers, the works but nobody noticed. The only exception is my Dad and instead of comforting me he just did his best to wind me up, an usually suceeded too. I've given up sulking, nothing comes of it.
