Hi.. guys, I am back to mylot after a long time. Anyway, I was just respnding to an interesting discussion about rude people. where i mentioned that, it depends on one's conception of rudeness or what you feel is rudeness. And to love them or now also depends on the concept. So, guys I would like to know what is your definition of rude behaviour and rudeness and have even been called rude and how you managed to get yourself heard that you are not RUDE? Shoot and respond. Its gonna be very interesting to know and keep ourselves not being rude with others?

I think when you start wanting to change the definition of a word like 'rude' then you just cause confusion. To be rude means to show a lack of respect for other people, or to say things that hurt them. It used to mean people who lacked manners, or social graces, but I don't think that's what you're referring to. To me it's obvious when people are rude. Perhaps it depends in part on your reaction, whether you feel hurt by them or not, but it doesn't basically change the concept of rudeness.
