One Reader's Top 5 Rudeness Pet Peeves
I live in Michigan but am originally from the south. I have encountered so many rude people in Michigan that it is staggering. Many factors constitutes rudeness and I'll list a few I have encountered.
1 - People in lines at stores butt into a line instead of going to the back of the line.
2 - Inviting oneself to join someone at their lunch table uninvited.
3 - Backstabbing with gossip and lies (and being from the Bible Belt this is a hard pill to swallow).
4 - Becomming a non-stop talker without coming up for breath and showing no interest in what someone else has to say. Monopolizing a conversation is extremely rude, especially on the phone.
5 - Undermining another person is exceeding rude but seems to be prevelent in the city where I live.
Do you have any more rude behaviors you want to add to the list? Submit a comment and I will add your grievance to the list on this blog.
# Talking very loudly on the phone in public with absolutely no concern for people around them....these people even ignore other people's negative body language to carry on their conversation.
# Laughing/Yelling/Talking VERY loudly among friends while ignoring every other person around them.
#Bluetooth!!!! I love the technology, but I HATE, let me repeat, i H-A-T-E all the idiots who use bluetooth headsets and talk like they are alone in their house....this happens alot in: busses, busstops, classrooms, cafes, etc..
#Sitting down by yourself/w/a group of people blocking the stairs
#Cell phone rings once during class.....she/he goes "..oh sorry..".....30 mins later: riiiiiing... again she/he goes "...sorry.."...how about turn the f*****g cell phone?? or at the least put on vibrate...seriously..
If you want rudeness, come spend a day with me, seriously....I HATE RUDE PEOPLE, and it will sadly get only worse :(
