Many People Simply Do Not Care Anymore How They Act.

People don't care what language they use or the tone it is said in.

It seems that we (many of us) have become a society of self-obsessed, arrogant, obnoxious individuals.

Rudeness is never justified whether in any area of our lives.

I know that thoughts are not easily controlled.

I also know that we cannot always say what is on our mind and therefore we can control our words and the actions that accompany them.

We also should be held accountable for this violations of good behavior.

Self-control, self-disipline lead to better self-esteem.

Something I wish everyone possessed.

well why would they when they have never been given any- they assume people are messing with them trying to get something out of them trying to get over on them

Tulick, thanks for your inputs.<br />
<br />
However, for me rudeness, bad manners are the key ... not just where they are found (work place vs the street).<br />
<br />
Many in this day and age behave atrociously all too often and there is no excuse.<br />
<br />
It is a two way street, however many of us travel it alone an encounter obnoxious blowhards all too often. For many it is not a lack of trying. It is the others (obnoxious individuals) do not respond in kind to good/nice behavior.

IzaWonderW0MAN and everyone i hate to tell you but you are sooo wrong about this <br />
<br />
First of all there is a differenece between language and rudeness found in the work place vs on the street <br />
<br />
we are a society of "seems that we (many of us) have become a society of self-obsessed, arrogant, obnoxious individuals" because we HAVE to be its the only way we survive and the PROBLEM is people who write things like this who push so much paitents tolerence self control and disipline that the average person gets trampled <br />
<br />
I am fed up with the personal resposibility and accoutablilty lectures when with all that tolerence patients self control the people on the other side of the slaes counter or whereever you are don't think they have to keep trac k of your order, your job application, your paperwork for whatever<br />
<br />
They feel free to lie to you BS you around tell you you didn't fill it out didn't provide them what was required and even if you prove to them that yes you did they still don't know what to do with you then we wonder why people go postal <br />
<br />
Example- guy at best buy looking to replace the defective camera he bought calls ahead to see if they have the identical brand in stock so he can exchange it they say yes. He comes into the store goes to customer service and apparently they do not have it someone miscounted <br />
<br />
Guy becomes irrate uses foul language exc. because as he tells the sales person you guys didn't have it the last time i was here either i called to see if you have it now you tell me you don't who knows how far the man drove and all he wanted was a replacement for a defective item he did the resposible thing by calling to see if they had it before wasting time and gas to go there so who is wrong??<br />
<br />
Instant gradification is another one of these phrases that needs to go away there is NO gratification in society today too many people have jobs and they can't pay their bills spend thousands on educations and come out working minimum wage for some kid of income then they go out into the world and all they wanted to do was renew their dirver's licience, get their cable repaired and all they get is an experience that would make the pope swear. You try to wait until you do have moneyt to buy that DVD or shirt or whatever and when you do YOU CAN'T FIND IT wait for something to go down in price and its gone. <br />
<br />
If you are working it should not take years to get the money together to buy a PC or a TV or a couch if your working 40 hours a week you should be able to do that in a year or less period because this is the United States not the republic of benagal <br />
<br />
If we want people to stop being rude obnocious and so on then STOP making it so hard to do the most basic of things STOP making it ok for places to lose paperwork, have to have job applications stapled to their foreheads, STOP forcing people to work jobs they care nothing about to make a living restore the RULES as they apply to business behavior, hiring, costromer service in terms of people who can count, people who know how to handle simple requests, people who can be understood when they speak <br />
<br />
STOP letting people opperate their place of business or whatever it is that hires employees on an absolute skeleton crew because they are too cheap or too stupid to hire more workers too ignorant to go speak to high schools an d colleges about the need and demand for whatever the job is so that those looking to get into a career feild know its an option and know how to get there <br />
<br />
Imagine how pleasent someone would be if they only had to fill out the paperwork for something ONCE <br />
<br />
Imagine how pleasent people would be if they were properly informed about whatever the product or service was from the begining <br />
<br />
Imagine if you could be like the gentlemen above and actully get what they said they had what you came for <br />
<br />
You want citizen X to behave a certain way then the people in power in authority those in control of products and services have to respond in kind

HUgs back, Josie! Indeedy, me and my own parents have been victims to the psycho babble of blame! My chid's dyslexia and ADHD were " inconsistant parenting from me and hubby". And my brother's drug abuse as a teen was my parents' fault. Even though neither of them do drugs, and drink alcohol like twice a year! I agree with you... PULLLEEEESSSEEE!!!! ;)

Oh, Emerald. That is an excuse that I have really come to hate. The sector of society that has propagated that into our lives should be shot. Maybe we should empty all the prisons ... cause it was their parents fault. Puleeze!<br />
<br />
(((((hugs)))))Emerald(((((hugs)))))

Well, Josie, who needs self control and good behavior when all the shrinks tell us it's our PARENTS fault we act the way do??!! :O

well, people just need to learn a little self control

I personally am no worried about people's behaviors now, for the most part, but I AM worried about the next generation of people. These children are learning foul language and bad manners at a young age now. I have seen 7th graders with a worse mouth then I have on myself and I am about to become a senior in high school. It is ridiculous how bad it has become and I fear that when I become a father, my children will be as uncontrollable as the children are becoming now.

I wonder why we as a society not only excuse but reward bad behavior.

society now expects us, the part of the population that remembers how to employ patience, tolerance, and compassion, to be feel compasion, tolerance, and patience for the self-absorbed, obnoxious, individuals that psychologists have labeled with every and any disorder they can fabricate to allow those afflicted individuals a license to act any way they wish and assume no responsibility for their behavior.
