Excuse Me.....not!!

I went in a roller rink one time to pick up my neice and as I was standing there a 10 year old kid nudged me with his pool stick and yelled in my face " Move out of way!!!" WHAT?? I was startled!! I thought " you little punk, I should take that pool stick and whack you on the head with it". I can tolerate people my age getting rude with me because I get rude right back, but what do you say to a kid? " Oh, I'm sorry, I didn't realize?" just so they can continue to be rude. I work in a gas station and when kids come in they have no respect for others feelings and possessions and what's worse is if you say something back along the lines of " Young man that was awfully rude of you" the PARENTS jump in tell you are not to talk to their child like that!!!Well, I'm sorry but I'm not going to stand for a child cussing me like a dog and if they have a problem disaplining him I'd be glad to do it for them. Another thing I've noticed is the older folks are just as rude as the young ones. I believe in the saying " respect your elders" but only to a certain degree. As long as I'm being respected that's fine. People in their 60s and up tend to think that just because of their age everyone should walk on coals for them and that they are always right. Have ever told a senior citizen that their wrong? OMG, they get their Depends all in a twist and start telling you that you don't dont know what your talking about and that your wet behind the ears blah blah blah. Anyway, the way I see it is there is a place and a time for rudeness and most people don't know when it is.

Oh goshh i agree 100%<br />
I'm only 17 years old but even when i was younger i was never rude to anyone... even to people that deserved it, maybe i was a bit shy.<br />
I was always very dissaplined... and NEVER hit by my parents or anyone.<br />
<br />
My mother always taught me manners and i always listened to her.<br />
<br />
But that little kid... wow he DOES need more that stick on his head! LOL<br />
<br />
and i also despise the elder people who think that they know everything so they think they can get away with being rude... Now that I'm a bit older i can say a few things back to you myself!!<br />
But anyways, my little sisters 13 year old friends are pretty rude... as that 10 year old was to you...<br />
I just can't stand that fact that their parents would bring them up like that!

I agree with both of you!

ROFLMBO! You have quite an entertaining way of making your point! With which, I agree! But you know you wanted to put that stick somewhere else besides on that kid's head! lol. And as to the elderly... yes, I find sometimes they get a bit carried away too. Great story! I give it a 5!!
