When a person is inconsiderate, they can be the most annoying people in your life. You constantly wonder why they don't get it. I have a friend who takes 2 and 3 hour baths, even though she know that she hast to share the restroom with three other people. She says, oh you can come in and use the restroom while I am in the tub. No one wants to give up that much privacy. Then she says, well just ask me and I will step out long enough for you to go. That kind of rudeness makes my blood boil. The other day I was on the bus, this guy was sitting in one seat and had a long duffle bag across the bench where the ederly and handicap sit. An elderly gentleman got on the bus and just stood there by the bag longing to sit down, but not giving any indication to the man the he wanted to. I would have been the one who walked up to him and said excuse me and waited for him to move the bag so that I could have a seat. The guy finally moved the bag after about 15 minutes. How do you deal with inconsiderate people?

I'm not the best one to answer this one. I did a runner from the shopping centre last night because people were being rude. I'm just not in the mood for dealing with the rudeness and lack of consideration for others when I am shopping with my girls!

Ive been known to speak up and tell the rude person off. I have also been known to polietly ask the person to give up their set or move their bag in the case on the bus. I think some times people do not care and sometimes they do not know what is going on around them.

Oh dont get me started on this please I can go on for days. My cousin did the same thing with the bathroom even going to the toilet was 1 hour thing. They live in a small apartment with 1 toilet bathroom (all in 1) so you could die waiting for him. Another thing was the bus when I was pregnant. As we didnt have a car and had to use public transport I had to use the bus a lot. 9 times out of 10 no one got up for me to sit and I was huge and very obvius. If my husband was with me he would ask someone for the sit but I was too polite to do it.

Honey, let me tell you, if I were pregnant, somebody is going to get up and let me sit down. Forget about being polite, my baby is safer with me sitting down. If that happens again, just go up to the bus driver and ask him if he wants to be responsible for what would happen if you fell. I bet he would have a whole row of seats available for you. Do not take chances like that. You were in a very delicate situation and somebody needed to rise up and give you a seat. I would pick a person that looked the most like it would not kill them to stand and had a comfortable seat. I would say, excuse me, may I sit there? I would feel no shame.
