Why do some people think it's okay to be rude?

Report as

I believe it comes from their up bringing, if that's how mommy or daddy acted then it's the norm, or comes from deep seated insecurities. Or they just might not like a certain person.

Me too, one girl just responded, "cause they feel like it!" seriously!

It makes me sick. People don't hold doors for the elderly anymore, don't say hi on the sidewalk, and most don't even know their neighbors. Society is really falling to pieces. It's pretty sad.

I agree Richard. I was raised to respect my elders, and I do, I'm far from perfect and can admit that I've done things I regret, I learned from those things. Some people don't care too.

A lot of people operate on the "Don't like me? Stop me." principle. They do what they want and it's up to you to deal with it.

*edit* I forgot to capitalize my "A" at the start, haha.

Yeah, they're means they are, as in "because they are rude" Their is the possessive form, as in their rudeness is very annoying. I'm not trying to be rude, just letting you know.

Because they don't realize what they are doing is wrong, there are a lot of good reasons that someone could be rude.

Can't add much to RichardMurray's comment. Bad upbringing and/or immaturity.

If you're talking about rudeness on the Internet it often comes from people who have the courage to be rude to strangers they don't have to face, but who would be too cowardly to be rude to you face-to-face.

It doesn't seem so bad when you treat them like the cretins they are.

true, Dozy. Also, people who drive like @ssholes-- cutting someone off in traffic, tailgating, flipping the bird... then they get out of their cars and act like the nicest people in the world. People who hide behind steering wheels and keyboards are cowards
Report as
You guys are spot on! I think the car thing is frustration in life, period, so they take it out on the road . The everyday encounters, its nauseating . I saw a guy in line at the grocery store , huff and puff over a mom trying to get her money out and comfort her crying baby. Of course, he probably would have been patient had she been hot looking. Rude people suck. I'am ways amazed Kindergarten= please, thank you

Hi Sas and Bubbles, You're right. Road hogs are bad news. When I was a kid there was a Disney cartoon about a meek little guy who spent the morning yes-dearing his wife. Then he got into his car and the camera focused on his hands. As they took the steering wheel, black hair started to grow on them. I must have been 10 at the time, but can still remember it;.

Here's a song about a road hog http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vVpMvtCayt0

BTW Bubbles, John Numerical was talking about you yesterday. He says your a good person to follow. So...

it depends on you definition
of rude .... like fogeting to say please and thankyou .. or being insulting and offensive rude .... its all a matter of respect .. if someone doesnt have respect for themselfs or others around them then that is were rudeness begins.... i dont care what background you come from if you respect someone you will never intentionally be rude to them

People are rude when they have failed to understand that life is a group project. You can't do much alone, you don't know what you are going to need, or from whom.
So, apart from being mature, it just makes good sense not to be rude.
However, on Ask and places, it's ok to be a little less polite because it's better to be terse!

You don't get to the nub of arguments by being nice to everybody!

people just like to be rude or they make themselves feel better by being rude...I think it's mostly because of insecurities...It's quite sad and no ones doing anything about it.
