    So true... certainly they wouldn't say it to MY face... so they have to hide behind a screen to be nasty!! Just cowards nothing more, weak and unable to stand up for themselves in the real world.. and they should be treated with the disdain they deserve

    I've found that on forums the nicer you are to some people the more annoyed they get, the nastier they become, they equate kindness with weakness..when in fact the nicest people are usually the emotionally strongest!!

    I haven't read anything of yours that has come across as rude. Are you talking about one specific post or all of them in general?

    Only you know the truth.

    When it comes to parents at their children's sporting events. You weren't kidding around.

    Trust me. I have been there.

    Beyond rude. Insane is the word.

    It's so bad in Canada now at hockey games that the referees can have an abuser removed from the arena.

    I always found it odd that so many people feel folks in New York City are rude. I spent time there in the 70s (close friend lived there) and again in the 90s. I loved it - had a wonderful time! Interacted with lots of people in stores, restaurants, etc. New Yorkers DO tend to move and talk fast (unlike southerners), but I never encountered one rude person.

    She's lucky you allowed her to get away with that...some people would have pushed her back, cussed her out, or worse.

    A couple of months ago,I'm standing in line at my local bank.I was the next person in line about to walk to the teller when this guy cuts in front of me.I was po'd.I said to him in a loud voice"You SOB,you have no manners while the people behind me have been waiting too'. He looked at me and glared,just shrugged his shoulders .I wanted to slug him but thought better of it.
    I always encounter rude drivers whenever I'm out taking my walks.When I start crossing the street,they are so distracted and don't see me,slam on the brakes,sometimes give me the finger as if the pedestrian doesn't have the right of way ,morons Sue

    In traveling, I have found tourists from one, (here) unnamed part of the world, to be unbelievably rude with their constant shoving and cutting in line. It is a cultural thing, I guess, but it still disgusts me.

    SOME rude people don't realize that they ARE being rude ! They never learned the difference.

    I'll bet we all know a few. Learn to give 'em a wide berth.

    Good job my friend. We need to stop this blatant disregard for proper grammar!
