Can I just vent and say how I am so sick of rude people! On this forum, people asking for advice then either not acknowledging replies or making rude remarks to them. People at work asking to borrow things with no please or thankyou, or co workers talking about other co workers behind their back. People in the street or shopping mall barging past you. Argh so over it! Can't everyone either be nice, fake being nice or keep their opinion to themselves, it's really not that hard. I'd even settle for people just saying please and thankyou to me more often, such basic manners that so many people seem to be lacking!

You're trolling right?

No not at all, just venting as I said, just seem to have encountered a lot of rude people in the last few days.

Why would that perfectly reasonable vent be trolling?!
OP you sound like you've had a rough couple of days. Some days I feel the same - like, what on earth is going on around me?! I think it's pretty common to wonder this at times.
Sometimes if I write down 10 positive interactions from my day it can erase that negativity a bit. Hope you feel better soon :-)

I was reading a thread today that had me thinking the same thing. It doesn't happen that often but every now and then you get one. The big one I see is the local freebie pages on FB. The amount of people who post saying they NEED (like they really need that TV that'll take HDMI for their child's bedroom so desperately that they can't save money for it and buy one) this, that or the other without a please or thank you in sight.

People are in this world for themselves these days. I find people to be very self centred and selfish. Not all people are like this, but to me it seems to be more common these days. No courtesy at all or any consideration for others feelings and well being.

I got such a rude person on the phone yesterday that it broke me - I'm not used to people being rude to me when I've taken no steps to offend them. I forced the issue that "we" needed to sort out why she was being rude - apparently she'd had a really bad day of people being rude to her...so she thought she'd take it out on me - logical really. So I ended up being that 'cray, cray' mum who couldn't stop crying for the rest of the day - too tired to stop the flow.
I really do hope that her HR department review that particular recording (it stated it may be taped for training, etc prior to conversation). She was nuts! And no, she never apologised.
