The world has become rude, very rude indeed.

So, how many times have you said to yourself : "Oh how rude" after observing someone doing or saying something?

Is the world getting more rude?
Or are manners just not as important as before?

Whats considered rude has perhaps changed too. For example would you consider a male sitting on a bus while a female is standing rude?
I dont but if it were an elderly person or someone with a young child I would

I agree with Mulan..i remember when all kids used to be polite, always saying yes ma'am and yes sir, and thank you, there was no rape, no war, no muggings, kids never sneeked out of home, there was no under age drinking or smoking, no umarried mothers..ahhh yes those were the days..thats the problem with nostalgia..brings back too many memories.

I dont but if it were an elderly person or someone with a young child I would I'd consider it to be polite, yes if a man gives his seat for a lady. Or perhaps "chivalrous"...(do people even still use that word)

On the other hand, some women wear so much make up, that they could be considered to be paintings. Then they can hang.

If the skin snaps back immediately, you're too young and shouldn't even bother.

If the skin takes its sweet time to get back, well, you're most likely one of those people who says: "How rude" more often than not...

Nothing wrong with my elbow skin though... :9:

Someone jumped the line at the supermarket, someone stole my parking space, I spent a lot of time and money helping someone out without getting a "thank you"... Colleaugues want info and don't ask just order.

Anyhoooo, I don't like rudeness. It's very unlady-like.

Manners is a funny thing...What some deem rude, others don't.

For instance, as a child I was taught by one side of the family, not to look men in their eyes, another side of the family said it's bad manners NOT to look people in the eye when you talk to them...

I don't really care if random people on the street are rude because I can behave rudely with them in return but if people I know are rude to me, then I find it disrespectful and offensive.

A few days ago. Got sick of having the same nick for 4 years and thought I'd be anonymous for a while.

Rudeness is related to lack of respect and lack of patience for others - which in turn is related to the increasing divorce rate in societies all across the world

Yesterday i was comming back home and this car was comming head on towards me on a one way street. I manovered my self all the way to the side and let the car pass. As the car passed this woman from ancient history rolled her head out and said something to me as if i was in the wrong!!!!!!. To my credit I stopped myself from cussing her after I realised she was a sample from world war 1.
