Do others agree people are getting ruder? – I’m not sure if people are getting ruder or I am just getting a little more sensitive? Maybe I’m being a little hormonal? But lately I’ve really been noticing a few things that are really getting to me.
For example… waiting at the supermarket to be served a man pushes in. The supermarket employee told me “oh he’s a regular here” (What? Well so am I, I spend hundreds each week here for my family of 4.!). People trying to overtake from the left hand lane, when the road merges to one lane, is starting to drive me up the wall! It’s just plain rude, pushing in like that surely?! Is it just me?

  • I think it just depends on who you come across at any given time. Generally I find people pleasant.

  • You are right – people are ruder. Social media doesn’t help. We just have to beat the drum of politeness!

  • Definately so Rude no respect its just all rush rush oh and you get out of my way hahaha I just expeirenced this the other day I was waiting inline at the Bank and apparently I pushed in front of them yeah so over it

  • Yes people are getting ruder!It’s like no one has a filter anymore they don’t stop and think before they open their mouths or their actions are just plain rude! Social media has a lot to do with it I think,.

  • Yes sadly I have to agree with you !

  • Yep. I think people just don’t have time to be nice anymore. Also I think they’re scared of being nice in some situations as there’s too many crazy drug affected individuals out there to hurt and rob and steal

  • I think I agree with you. One of my peeves is birthday cards. If I send you one, would it kill you to acknowledge it? Sure, ‘it’s only a card’ but I took the time to think of you, buy it, write in it and post it…the least you can do is acknowledge it. Or when you invite people to a do and they can’t come, but they don’t even bother with a card! Grrrr

  • Yes I completely agree with you!

  • The fact is some people are rude and don’t have any manners!

  • No it’s not just you, people are a lot ruder these days, they just don’t care about others- only themselves.

  • Being a so called ‘regular’ is no excuse for rude behaviour. He should have been told to wait! I ignore/do not respond until people use manners.

  • I would have to agree with you, in general I do think people have forgotten their manners and how to be kind

  • Thats just rude. Everyone must wait there turn.

  • Nope, I completely agree with you. People are, in general, getting ruder. I don’t understand why, especially when others try to be nice to them, despite their rudeness.

  • its not just you, its society and the weird world we live in, I work in retail always have and its a problem
