Most everyone I come in contact with have none and I think it is going to get a lot worse.
isn't rudeness kind of being glamorized in the media. Sure it can be funny in a tv show but in real life ....those impressionable minds! shows glamourizing rudeness maybe rated for adults only?
It went the way of common sense, sadly...

Don't expect a return of ur generosity,then when it comes it will be a nice surprise.
You...meet me! I do it as s'well! But if/when i don't get respect,i give em back what they give me! You get what u give in this life...know that u are a decent one & will get it back 3 folds...so will they on the other end of the spectrum. That’s all we need to know & that's satisfaction & good e’nuff for me!
Wutever works for u honz...I do what I feel in the moment,it's what script i may or not be on too! ha ha ha..
It got thrown out the window along with self-respect, common sense and the ability to think for oneself.
It’s slowly becoming non-existent. From the simple things of holding the door for the person behind you to letting someone cut in front of you on the road (while indicating to do so) when trapped behind a slow moving vehicle; folks do not even say thank you anymore. Many are walking around with the attitude of entitlement and showing any signs of appreciation or acknowledgment for the kind gesture is moot in their mind. It’s the "me, me, me and to heck with you" attitude on display these days. For those of us who have been properly raised-up and not shoved-up, continue on showing courtesy and kindness to others, for as I was always told, "Payback is a ***** and every dog WILL get its day". So be good and you will be rewarded.
Argh! That drives me crazy! Or even in the supermarket letting someone get in line in front of you when they have one item and they can't even acknowledge that you have done something nice. I try not to let it dissuade me from being courteous because once in a while some stranger will do something nice for me. That makes it worthwhile.
You're right, I would've felt bad also. I think it's because we have this little thing called a *conscience ;)
Kids are not raised up anymore, they're dragged up.<br />
Everything is gradually getting worse.
One commenter had it right; sadly it's become fashionable to be rude. I've actually had young people tell me that to be nice is to be fake; only rude and selfish is honest. Why are people raising kids like that?
Yes, when kindness is seen as weakness, we're all in trouble. Kids need to see the beauty in caring, the beauty of the human spirit. Part of it I think, is the liberal media lampooning those who follow Jesus as idiots.
actually I am sometimes guilty of not acknowledging people who do things like that. Mostly because my mind is in a fog (I am 50 years old and female ...a lot of us are that way....can you spell "endocrine disruption" and "hormone imbalance"??) so I think to myself, oh, i should have waved...but the moment passed. Or maybe they just found out their best friend was just diagnosed with cancer. I try to remember that people have a lot on their minds. Maybe they appreciated it but didn't have the multi-tasking skills to drive, talk, and then wave....
It died along with common sense.
I second that.....please do NOT get me started!
I can agree with you on that. It's one of my biggest pet peeves.
it's not so common anymore..
Unfortunately, it's more fashionable these days to be rude and selfish
Karma. What you did was correct and just keep being thoughtful. You are not alone in this.
Common courtesy left with Common sense
It is alive and well in some people.
Nope. I appreciate some courtesy too. It's too bad so many people are too busy to notice they're not being courteous any more.
For some, yes. But many of us still treat others as we would like to be treated, rather than how we expect to be treated.
it died with the last generation , its all skateboards , facial tattoos and hoodies now
It is still in existence, but becoming more rare. I become annoyed with clerks whom I have never met addressing me as: "Hon", "Sweetie" , etc. I politely ask them to not address me in that manner.
