An article that I read had the following listed as top 10 rude behaviors.

1. Discrimination in an employment situation
2. Erratic or aggressive driving that endangers others
3. Taking credit for someone else's work
4. Treating service providers as inferiors
5. Jokes or remarks that mock another's race, gender, age, disability, sexual preference or religion
6. Children behaving aggressively or bullying others
7. Littering (including trash, spitting, pet waste)
8. Misuse of handicapped privileges
9. Smoking in non-smoking places or smoking in front of non-smokers without asking
10. Using cell phones or text messaging in mid-conversation or during an appointment or meeting.


While I agree with all of these, they are not my top 10.

These three would make my top 10 are
1. Unsolicted opinions (before you say it - CD is soliciting for opinions)
2. People who still use checks at check out lines
3. People who put their feet or shoes on the top of seats at a movie theater.

Does anyone disagree with any of these or would like to add other behaviors?

You know what I can't stand? When people try to hold a conversation with headphones in both of their ears. Pisses me off to no end.

I think it is very rude when someone is continually late. It makes me think that they believe that their time is more valuable than everyone else's time.

When people don't walk up escalators or walk on moving sidewalks (or at least take up the whole escalator and don't let you pass them).

Partially. After all, if you're not suggesting some way to prevent it (good luck with that), this whole thread is just another exercise in judgmentalism and finger pointing.

Don't we have enough of that already?

My list includes;

Idiots with loud vehicles. NO that "fart pipe" on the back of your little car is not helping anything but confirming my opinion you are an idiot. Ph, and the attention whores that ride loud Harley Davidsons. The B.S. about "loud pipes save lives" is crap. If they were concerned about safety they would dress in "hunter Orange" instead of pretending they were in a biker gang.

Loud car stereo systems- No, I do not appreciate hearing your "music" and when you install the stereo just to get noticed you are a little attention *****. People are looking at you because you are an @sshole.

People going out in public half dressed. I have heard the defense "If you don't like it then don't look" but when your fat @ss is standing in front of me in a check put line and I see more than I would ever want to see we have a problem. Some things once seen can never be unseen.

People paying for their items is rude to you? Maybe you should just swipe for em to get em out of your way. I think it's rude to act like an ass when waiting in line at checkout.

My pet peeve is people who lack gratitude/manners. How much effort does it take to say, "Thank You" when someone holds the door for you, or to raise your hand to acknowledge a courtesy when someone is nice enough to let you enter traffic?
