I swear .... I cannot BELIEVE how rude and inconsiderate ... unthinking and uncaring ... people are today!!! It's just incredible the amount of insensitivity towards others and lack of basic human consideration one can run into just leaving out of your home. If I even THOUGHT about being as disrespectful towards somebody as people were to me today .... my mother would have SMACKED me into somebody else's lifetime!!!! If not a whole other existence all together!!! Folks just don't care about anybody but themselves, these days. And I guess it's just hard getting use to that .......because (thankfully) I can remember much happier and better times.Yep! Soooooo true my sista. Manners? What in the HELL is that? And I surmised that folks do that outta FEAR! Yes fear. Fear of being "disrespected" in their sick intrepretation of what "respect" means [they really HAVE no clue]. And this travels across the board. Cuz for the most part some folks don't think they have to be respectful to others. Cuz it's NOTcool to do so. And to be this way for them is self-empowering. Don't ask why. But it's all generational. And I also think it's because this behavior have been "modeled" by the unsuspecting younger generation observing those who they admire or hold high regards to and adopted this ill-formed mentality with no self accountability. I see children do this all the time, especially teenagers and young adults. They think nothing of it....and that's all the more troublin.
