From The Merriam-Webster Thesaurus…..showing a lack of manners or consideration for others.
Daily life is full of little indignities that can either sink in or be ignored. My advice is to ignore them. What is preventable is the rude behavior heaped on we good people by those who don’t know better or don’t care. I, like many, hold doors open for people. I expect a thank you and supply it myself if I don’t get it. Not getting one will never prevent me from doing it again.
I am not alone in telling people that you can learn all you need to know about someone by how they treat those that serve us in stores, restaurants and bars. And by the way, isn’t it a mark of some degree of stupidity when one is rude to the person serving you food?
The excuse that one is just that way, to intellectually involved in saving the planet or too important sounds like….I am a huge asshole, to me. Anyway, that is my rant for today after spending time at Starbucks and mostly hearing thank you.
