Ever stop to think why that person cut in front of you in line, why did that person zoomed ahead of you to get that parking space? I often try to think why that person is being like that. Are they just rude by nature or is there something in their background that made them that way? Can a person have such a hard life that they take it out on those around them or is there something temporarily bothering them? So I went on a search about rudeness but first I needed a good understanding of what rude really was. According to Wikipedia rudeness is "Rudeness is a display of disrespect by not complying with the social "laws" or etiquette of a group or culture." Disrespect was the first word that popped out at me. With that being said does one carry this disrespect with them from childhood, a learnt behavior or is it gained slowly as one matures?
