Is rude behavior on the rise or is it more noticeable as we get older?

    On the flip side, I was on lunch duty today. I held the door open, and so many teens thanked me that I felt guilty about this answer... Manners do exist; we just need to look sometimes.

    You have a point in that it does seem more readily accepted now than it was in the past. I hadn't thought about that. Rudeness is everywhere, consideration is more limited, but still out there. It would be nice if that was the main thing I saw.

    Sometimes I feel it's a combination of the two and other times I feel that it's definitely on the rise. My father taught my two sisters and I to respect others and to be considerate. Some of the things that people do today absolutely stun me.

    Parents who shouldn't be parents is definitely a contributing factor to rude behavior from their offspring and it's plausible that many of these parents can be quite rude themselves.

    Culture clash yes. But as we age our frontal lobe does help us make wise decisions. I'd like to hope rude/stupid behavior will come to an end.

    But I say put the phone down kids. And talk to us. Not text.

    Do u gt it? That's texting.;)

    The conspiring of rudeness involves everyone. Like a unruly child or a bully; you have to learn to ignore, roll with the ignorance, and not just develop tolerance, but assert yourself; let them know how rude you find it in creative, optimistic ways

    Wow, my dad also was an OTR driver, that later went local. He talked about this too. Now that I've gotten older, it seems I'm seeing it more often. It really does seem that rudeness is more open or acceptable than it was when I was younger.

    There are also many people who are children themselves, mentally and/or physically, who have children with little time, money, knowledge, or patience to raise kids. Some that I've met don't seem to even hope their kids have a better life than them.

    You sound like my dad, a good thing to me. I don't understand why some people are so blatant with their selfishness and refusals to follow rules or laws. Your theories ring very true.
