Excuse Me..

I hate it when people do not say "Excuse Me" even when they have to. Have some people lost their values? I remember how my parents reminded us from time to time to say "Excuse Me" if we need to. For example, when I need to get through a crowd, I would say "Excuse Me". Or, when I need to get someone's attention for some reason especially if I need to talk to someone whom I don't really know. Or, when the person I need to talk to is busy. Lately, I realized not everyone knows how to say "Excuse Me". What do you think?

It could be that they were not taught by their parents. I hate rudeness but sometimes its also part of the culture. I have found certain people from a certain country to be especially rude and impolite. Bottomline, its a matter of upbringing. Come to think of it, one can't really blame them if they are brought up that way. Though, such bad manners makes me uncomfortable and it irrirates me a number of times, i have realized that it's just one of those things that one have bear with in this world.

I'm not to sure , truthfully i dont use it very often unless i need to. I dont think its really.... i dont know the word. I do see people use it , but not very often. I guess some people are just rude and don't care , but then again saying excuse me makes them not rude?

yes that is true, i think most people lost their values. it is easy for them to say a bad word than to say courtesy words.
