Rudeness

It’s part of the breakdown in society. We stopped having respect for figures in authority – partly because those in authority didn’t command it.

Worst rudeness listed below,
  • Spitting
  • Swearing
  • Queue jumping
  • Not saying please or thank you
  • Playing an MP3 in public
  • Passing wind/belching in public
  • Speaking loudly on a cellphone in public
  • Inconsiderate driving
  • Not giving up your seat for a pregnant woman
  • Not holding the door for the next person
  • Update from Keeping Stock: Choosing to speak in your native tongue when you're perfectly capable of speaking English and surrounded by English-speakers
Well said, "more than half of us believe bad manners are the biggest problem – and blame parents for not stamping it out".

Just how many do you indulge us with?
