I don't get it...maybe I was just raised well, but I can't understand why people can be so mean and inconsiderate.
If you live in an apartment, common knowledge would tell you to not blast your tv/radio, or that the people below you can hear you running rampant at all hours of the day or night. Or that singing (screaming/yelling/whatever) at 3 a.m. is not very polite. Most people don't want to hear that shit! Especially if they have to be up in the next few hours. C'mon!
People who start rumors, or talk behind your back are another thing. I've dealt with this first hand in a few separate instances. I don't like it, I don't do it. I used to, but it cost me a very good friend because she misinterpreted what I said directly to her as me trying to start shit about her. I told her as a friend that people were saying mean things, and she felt like I was attacking her. Well, I wasn't, and I'm very sorry to her for that. I would love to be able to keep in touch with her as the friends we started out being, but that will probably never happen. Oh well. Life goes on. People that talk about me however, need to just say it to my face. I can handle it better that way.
Politeness and general courtesy seems to have been stripped from most people in the country. I don't know why, but kids are more rude these days then when I was young. Believe me, my kids are going to be raised with the same morals and respect that I was. My parents did a fantastic job with me and my siblings, and I will be very happy if my kids turn out even half as good as we all did!!
Anyhoo...I gotta get back to work. Lunch is over.
