I've always been fairly quiet when someone is rude..It's usually easier to just walk away..But as I've gotten older, I've also gotten a mush shorter anger span..Was at the mall with Ethan and Olivia, and they both asked if they could ride the fancy glass elevator..We got on at the top floor and down we went..Both kids standing in front of me, the doors open and low and behold a group of teens about 8 of them and the one in front was about six four and built like a truck, he pushes little Oliva and Ethan out of the way sending Olivia sprawling to the ground on girl rushes in stepping on the babies hand..He gives me a shove as I bend to pick her up and says get out of the way you dirty*****..Ok I grab both kids give him a good look and headed to security and they all got tossed the kids and I get an escort to our car..We were lucky they were outside, talking to about 6 policemen with those things they use like handcuffs..You don't know how I wanted to yell youwhooo and smile but I didn't....Oh how I wished I was a man..My grandsons had best never try being like that or sitting down will be impossible for a week!

Pook: Ditto on the grocery store kids. The worst I have ever seen was a few months ago when a mother was shopping with the cart, and daddy was playing hide and seek in the aisles with the 3 young kids. Any wonder why the kids grow up rude?
I like others, have less patience as I grow older for rudeness. Now I say something, either to the perp or the manager. Most managers just shrug it off. I did say something to the daddy. He gave me a dirty look, thought better of it. I stood my ground, but the commotion stopped. Trouble is, most people aren't rude, even to rude people.

As I found out in a similar situation Next time use their phone to call 911 and report the accident. That locks up the number so that only 911 can call back, and you cannot call from the phone for a very long time.

I am a lot like Kadesma as I grow older my quotion for nonsense is very limited
my biggest pet peeve is I am handicapped and either use a walker or a power chair and when I go to farmers mkt. and every body is parading their dog down the street and when the dog does his business they never stop to clean up after. and then I have to take which ever I am using to the car wash before I can go to my home, talk about the absolute hight of being rude this top all, That and cell phones I absolutly can't tolerate one, the man that invented them should be drawn and quartered old grumpy gradpa

When you're sitting in traffic in eg a "left only" lane and people would drive in the lane next to it and then cut in right in front of all the people who've been waiting in line for ages. To me it's exactly the same as going to the front of a supermarket line and cutting in. And then you get the car in front of you who have also been queuing for half an hour and he lets all these people cut in . . .

since the day my son was born, i've continually repeated to him the proper ways of speaking: from saying "excuse me" when interrupting someone, to saying "may i please have", instead on "can i get", and so on.

i thought it was really funny today when, being a 4 year old, he repeatedly said "excuse me, excuse me, excuse me" instead of repeating the person's name in order to get their attention.

i guess you had to be there.

I dislike it when you are in your vehicle waiting to go through a reduced to one lane construction zone, and people in the lane that is closing know darn well that it is.. and they still zooooom up to the front where the lane ends and edge their way in. People in Quebec here are notorious for edging themselves in where they are not wanted.

"Hey, if I edge myself in, they won't be able to move and I will be able to go ahead of them! Muahahaha."



I also dislike people on their cell phones who look at you as if you are interrupting them. Meanwhile they are in a public place. I don't mind if someone talks on their phone (I have a cell phone as well) But I am mindful of others when I am on it.

I don't like going to someones house and they haven't even made an effort to clean it. 3 days into the visit and the bathroom is still disgusting with hair and muck. Ew. It takes a minute to wipe that crap away around the tub and the sink, Cmon!!!

When on a long car trip with other people, in YOUR own vehicle, and you are the one driving the entire 10 hours, the people in the back ask you to turn off the music. ARGH! This weekend I was driving for 6 hours in silence (how boring is that for the driver?) meanwhile I was starting to fall asleep. I turn on a cd and not 10 minutes later "Can you turn it off? It's annoying." EXCUSE ME???? Do you want to live? Because if I don't have this music I am most definitely going to crash the car from going insane.

My mom taught me that after 7 p.m. it was adult time at a restaurant. Now it is better to go to lunch at a restaurant to avoid screaming children. Yes, thank-yous have gone by the wayside. Another thing is hand-shakes. People don't teach their kids to shake hands! People now hug inappropriately, but they don't know how to shake hands. My freind's son came to join us for Friday drinks, and walked around the bar and shook hands with each person. My God, How Lovely.

Fisher is the same way. He's certainly learned to use courtesy to his advantage because who can resist a kid saying "excuse me, sir"? He also says "I'm not saying your food isn't delicious, but I just don't care for any of that particular thing."
