I Do Not Appreciate Subtle Rudeness

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 126 People

    Or Not So Subtle

    I've had some recent encounters in my work that have left some people, should I say "disenchanted" (that's putting it lightly) with me.  These people for the most part have gone through their lives doing what they want, thinking the rules of society don't apply to them.  They...

    It Sparks My Anger

    I have worked with people in the past that were like this.  They made discreet comments, not specifically to my face but very much rude and made in regards to something that made it evident it was about me.  I prefer people that fully express what...

    Crappy Former Boss

    I worked for this moron who couldn't stand it if someone paid me a compliment of any kind. If someone would say something nice about me, he would have to come right back with the exact opposite and a lot worse. I think it was all because of the insecurities he had in his own life...

    Its Irritating

    i have more respect for someone who just comes right out and tells me how it is or how they feel. to me, when you express subtle rudeness, its as if you are saying youre better than me, i'm not worth your time to just be straight forward with. no, you'd rather have fun...
