Do trashy people not know they're trashy?

Rant ahead:

Seriously, how can people be so trashy and not realize it? Do they know they're trashy and don't care or are they blissfully oblivious? My husband and I are at our community pool and this uber trashy group / family is sitting next to us. They have kids that range from about 8 to probably 13. These people are sitting in the pool smoking - like actually in the water with cigarettes while kids are all around.l them. They're cussing like sailors and lots kids of from toddlers to teens are within earshot. We are the only parents close enough to hear them and our kids already left. I'm just waiting for the huge dad at the other end of the pool to hear this woman drop an f-bomb in front of his little girl. They're drunk - that's not bad if they're walking home, we're drinking at the pool - but we don't have little kids that we aren't watching. I'm about a hair from calling the police and I will if they get in a car.

That is awful! Some people are raise trashy, and you can not take it out of them.. I would have to of said something to them like: Look I am not being mean, but there are little kids and other's out here that don't want to hear all of the cussing. Can you please be respectful, and wait til you leave to talk that way.. I would have said something to them, if they continued to cuss and act like hoodlums.. Ugh! That gripes me..

We went to the local amusement park. I curse like a sailor, but not in front of other people's kids, but there were people smoking all around the swimming area, drinking and being obnoxious and then yelling at their kids and being nasty to then.

They probably think they are the fun family and everyone else is uptight! Seriously! They are oblivious!

Gross. If they're drunk call the police. Isn't it illegal to be drunk in public?

So this is what I will say about having insight about being "trashy". I didn't fully understand that I was being raised trashy until my junior or senior year of high school. And then something one day just clicked in my brain & I realized. Seriously, I got it! I saved my own money & bought nicer clothes, I began modeling my behavior on different, classier friends and my non-trashy extended family, etc. I finally just "got it".

When I was a supervisor I worked with some folk who were trying to break out of poverty, lower class lifestyles and I tried to help them become more "middle class". It is a very difficult transition, to leave one's "trashy" behaviors. And I have tried with some former employees and just couldn't help them no matter how hard I tried. I've tried with friends too. Until someone "gets it" themselves and really wants to change...

At our community pool no smoking or alcohol permitted. If you want to drink and smoke go to the river. I go to the river can't stand pools.

Some are oblivious and if asked would probably say you are the trashy ones. Some might say "Meh, I've seen worse."

Not everyone thinks cussing is trashy. In fact if it is then a huge majority on CM is trashy.

Some don't see drinking as trashy. I don't, but it can lead to trashy behavior.

I smoked for years. I never thought it was trashy.

One could say thinking you are better than others is pretty trashy.

Quoting DSamuels:

YAH!  That is how they think! 

People who don't get drunk, don't cuss and behave in a normal way are boring to them.Or "uptight". LOL.

They really do not know that they are trashy and crude,unappealing and yukky.
