It's not Phoenicians. It's people. Humans. I vote we turn over control to the dogs. (Although I must admit butt-sniffing can appear rude), dogs have many more redeeming values than humans.

I find this to be quite bigoted and shallow. The times I've been to southern California (especially Orange County and San Diego), I've been cut off & flipped off while driving on the freeways there ... and ironically, I'm considered to be a fast driver! So using your logic, I can only assume that these Californians who cut me off & show off their middle finger see my AZ license plate, and dislike me because of where I live.

You should thank the thousands of Phoenicians who patronize San Diego during the summer. We help your economy ... and therefore, are your bread & butter. So quit complaining.

Perhaps you should consider a new (* snicker *) career.

No, on the contrary, I think people in this area are very nice. I actually just did a very bad job of sarcastically pointing out that you were being rude, pretentious and shallow Since it didn't come out right the first time, I'll just come right out and say it - your comments make you appear rude, pretentious and shallow

You still didn't answer my question about how long you've actually spent here, which leads me to assume it wasn't very long, if at all. That doesn't really matter though. I've lived in many cities over the years and, while I've encountered many rude people in each city, I'd certainly never make a ridiculous comment about everyone in the city being rude. And anyone who does think every single person in a city is rude needs to take a long look in the mirror, b/c we tend to attract what we put out.

Default true rudeness is all to common

I just got back from a visit back home, on the plane both ways familes were separated from each other, seems the online reservations you make are only a request and not a for sure seat. anyways my point, each flight both ways the flight attendant asked the person seperateing the familes in a very polite manner if they could trade seats. in both cases the people said no! I heard one say no I travel all the time and I want a window seat, I didn't hear what the others excuse was. any case I thought unbelieveable! people have changed it is a fact. its all about memememe now days.

Um, how can a window seat separate a family? That makes no logical sense unless a family member was stuck in the row behind or something. In any event, why should someone have to change from a better seat so that the family can sit together? It can be construed as more rude on the family to request a seat change... why should they be entitled to that? I am not saying it is rude of them to request it, I am just giving the other viewpoint. My point is it can also be argued that the family is also about memememe in requesting the seat change.

Very kind of you to notice! I'll take that as a compliment!

I think they're extinct, gone the way of the Naugha...

Not sure you're old enough to remember, but when was the last time you saw furniture with genuine Naughahide??? I haven't seen it since the early sixties. They had such tough skin, but were just so friggin' slow! Very, very sad...
