Do you ever wish that people could be less rude??

Like I understand that people have different opinions on things and everything but I think that people could at least be polite when having a discussion.
What do you think??

  • Some people are just down right rude, but I've seen many times on here, where people are honest and straight forward with what they say. Then someone else doesn't like it and calls them rude/judgmental.

  • We are all from different places with different backgrounds what is rude to you may not be rude to me.

  • Absolutely....BUT....I have learned I can only control myself.....and how I act and react to others....I can choose not to be around rude people....or engage in dialogue, etc....but I cannot control them and how they speak.....so it's a moot issue, and it's better to concentrate on those issues where I do have some control....

  • Yes,I do wish people would be less rude!! I understand that we all have our bad days, and that some have more than others, but the people we/they encounter are not to blame (sometimes they are...). :)

  • I deal with rude people on a daily basis in my job and most I can shun and walk away. However, when you're being called names or nastiness is spewed your way because of something out of your control, it can get to you after a while. I especially hate rudeness from "family" when they are in your home and they have no consideration for those in your home.

  • I can't stand rude people and I've gotten really bad about being rude back to them. So many times at work I'll have a parent on the phone or in my office and they get ugly with us when they have no right to and although we can't be out and out rude back to them, I will use a tone that they know I'm not going to stand for them being inappropriately rude to us for no reason.

  • Of course. Sometimes I want to go off on rude people but it makes me no better than them, I am usually only rude in defense of someone else.
