What is your reaction when people are rude or disrespectful towards you or others?


Seemingly not a day goes by that I don't encounter utter, blatant disrespect. For example, what goes through the mind of some pig who thinks it's okay to have a sudden verbal outburst in a restaurant and openly criticise another patron who happens to be walking past, for all to hear? I think a lot of us are too polite to actually do anything about it. I have glared at people. Sometimes I've coupled glaring with stopping dead in my tracks. I've confronted people, only for them to play dumb and act as though they don't know what I'm talking about, making me look mad.

    Yes, they're just sad little people with nothing better to do than bring other people down. It's the random mutterers that get me. I mean, they don't know the person they're insulting at all. A case of judging a book by its cover, perhaps.

    I think the problem is that especially the younger generations go around saying that respect has to be earned -- that it isn't given. Fair enough, but that does not give one the right to go around disrespecting people.
