it just sounds like my story, the difference is that they all pick on me for this, for not talking a lot, for minding my own business (the others all talk to each other), i've stop going to lunch because i was always picked on with unpleasant comments especially about the fact that i don't talk. Maybe it's like you say, that i'm seen like a snob but i think i appear like an unpleasant person for them.
I know that they think i'm shy because they said it to me even directly but what they hate about me is that i'm introvert and insecure, this has caused me many issues at work because here where i live you have to appear always positive and tough otherwise you are considered not suitable for working even if in my case i'm in IT and i deal with tecnical stuff and i'm not like a sales man that need social skills to go on. The biggest issues i ever had had always been with my supervisors and bosses cause you always have to praise them and talk to them otherwise you'll get in trouble with them and then you end up screwed.
They think it's my fault cause i remain in my shell, if only they could imagine that i've got SA and what this is all about.
I'd advice you to try to do like they do, act like they want you to and so on, only if you're willing to do so and if you can manige to cope with the SA issue, in my case it never worked out
