I can't believe how rude people are these days. What ever happened to manners and common courtesy???!! I hold doors for people, and nothing. I let people in traffic, then nothing. I'm sick of it, and my attitude is changing. I'm getting the "screw you" attitude also.

I don't think that you should get the "screw you" attitude. Because then you would not be any better than those rude people that are upsetting you. I get upset at people being rude and even breaking the driving rules. Example, instead of a parent waiting in the long line like the rest of us to turn to the main direction that everyone else is going, there are parents that will go in the other lane to turn the opposite direction and then do a u-turn in the middle of the road. It isn't even allowed to do a u-turn there! And all the other parents that follow the driving laws are left in the line waiting their turn. But I would never go and do that myself. I would be no better than that person that I get upset at. There are enough rude people out there. I do not want to add to it.
