Does this make me an asshole? It is just something I never did but I seem to get the impression that people are expecting me to say it when they sneeze and seem surprised that I don't.
Is it wrong that I don't say Bless You or anything after somebody sneezes?

Well.. You don't have to but it's a polite thing to do.1
You're not an asshole for that it's too big of a word, but it's nice and polite if you do say it1
Not everyone says it. It's fine1
Sometimes I say it. Sometimes I don't. It just depends on my mood.1

Why are you not blessing them when the bad spirits are trying to get them? I mean you don't even have to be high level sorcerer to make the enchantment. Yes the origin of the saying is so very stupid and I love to mock stupid things.
"For the most part, the various sneeze responses originated from ancient superstitions. Some people believed that a sneeze causes the soul to escape the body through the nose. Saying "bless you" would stop the devil from claiming the person's freed soul. Others believed the opposite: that evil spirits use the sneeze as an opportunity to enter a person's body. There was also the misconception that the heart momentarily stops during a sneeze (it doesn't), and that saying "bless you" was a way of welcoming the person back to life." http://people.howstuffworks.com/sneezing.htm1
