What I consider rude? Someone who replies to a "non important" phone call while we are talking. VERY rude.

I don't consider calling someone buddy rude. It's more the tone or use of it, that can sometimes be, but I know it's not by you.

You only call a few people darling buddy or mate, I noticed. Maybe that is why they feel you are rude. Lol. Because it is selective. Lol Rude for me is not to reciprocate or appreciate someone who has done good to you.

All comes down to respect. To me to respect is empathy being able to put yourself in the other shoes and think with this harm them or hurt them if I say this or do?

There's a lot of little things that could be considered rude - like someone mentioned taking another call. I also often see people on dates taking calls and on their phone while their date is just sitting there and their date was hoping for an actual date and for someone to be present with. That certainly seems rude. I guess in the global sense there is also making assumptions about other cultures. Like throwing up a blanket over a whole culture or people and saying they're all like this. Like the jokes. Or assuming someone is from China because they're Asian. Not even knowing that there are many different African countries and assuming Africa is just one entire country. What do you think is this rudeness or just ignorance. And I don't mean ignorance as a insult but rather in the strictest meaning of the word someone who is ignorant of the facts. Unaware. Or taught by their parents so they don't know the truth.

I think that we need to understand other cultures and take time to understand them and when we don't maybe that is rude so maybe in one culture it's rude to shake hands and it's important to be aware of that before we interact with some of them that culture like if we are visiting that country. That's at the other side of the coin would be for that culture to understand that in your culture shaking hands is an acceptable and respectful form of greeting. I don't mind buddy or any of those I live in Texas so people are always saying sweetheart and honey. Sometimes I will call someone sweetie on accident just because I say to my son all the time. Somehow all the other names I call him don't spill out accidentally like rob star, or Robby Roo, or turtle lol. As someone else commented I noticed that there are different tones for things so sometimes people say sweetheart condescendingly or buddy condescendingly or rudely. It's all in the tone of voice I think.

People's arrogant tone in any conversation...I find it rude. I find many people who keep self praising and boasting and make you look like as if you don't match up to them
