Rudeness. Ack! Another one of those things that drives me batty. Rude people, rude comments, rude manners, rude, rude, rude. And I don't mean the once in a while "I'm irrated, what the *&$^ do you want? Forgive me if I'm having a rude moment" kind of rudeness. I am talking about the RUDENESS that seems to exist today. Goodness. I know we all have bad days. I know I do. And I know I too am rude from time to time, but it's not a habit.
I know people and places where rudeness is the norm. I'm sure some of you do too. Don't you hate it? Is it really so difficult to be nice? polite? use a kind word? Doesn't it take much more energy to be rude? I think so. I know personally, when I am nice, polite and/or considerate, I not only get a better response, I feel good about me. The worst part about rudeness is when it is not the norm for you but you find yourself responding with rudeness. Innnnnsannnneeeeeeeee!
Besides, being rude is wrong. Just wrong. No one likes it. Not even rude people! Crazy isn't it? Crazy that it seems right to treat others wrong. Crazy to believe that by being rude we made a point when all we simply did was make ourselves look like a fool.
