Prepare Yourself.

According to the results of our recent survey on www.lauriepuhn.blogspot.com, someone will be rude to YOU this week.

- 70% of survey respondents said they experience rudeness 3 or more times a week,

- 20% of respondents said they experience rudeness 1 to 2 times a week, and

- 10% said they rarely experience rudeness (perhaps these 10% are the same people who are rude to the rest of us...).

So what can we do about this? How should we react to rudeness?
Consider this: the best way to knock the chip off someone's shoulder is to pat him on the back.

Comments:
I live in the an area in the south known as the Research Triangle. There are a mix of southerners and probably now 75% out-of-state people here. I have to say that I only experience rudeness about 10% of the time. In fact, most of the rudeness I experience is from my children who live in Chicago, but also from my son who was raised in that area, but has lived here for 25 years and should have mellowed some by now.
