    So you're saying 20-30 years ago if you went to a Dept. store and you didn't like the way someone was walking, standing, parking, etc. you called them out on it? Most of the rudeness and bad behavior we see today comes from poor parenting not sure what being PC has got to do with it.

    Miserable? Nope. I just don't go anywhere. I've been known to stay on the farms and not leave for close to a week at a time.

    I "hang out" with my dogs. They have better manners than most people.

    And if our mailman comes to our house with a package I'd better have 15 minutes or so available to chat with him. Sociable or rude?

    of course not...rude is not raising a couple of fingers to any oncoming vehicle passes by...or not making eye contact and acknowledging passerby's on a sidewalk or in a smaller store...got to be social...how else can you learn what really going on the the community...?

    Sage advice - but the core of the reason American values continue to decline, self-preservation. There is a sad irony in the fact that freedom of speech means we can whine on internet forums but are unwilling to raise our voices and stand up in a theater and tell the row behind us to either shut up or leave. To ask politely why Ms. Tuffet thinks she should block the whole isle way while talking on her cell about last night's naughty housewives episode or tell the loud mouth in the bank line no one cares about his bounced check. At what point in our short history did we become such cowards?

    I'll drink to that! As a general rule I just do not like people, until they prove themselves. Been burnt one to many times, probably because I was too trusting. My dogs won't talk trash behind my back or tell lies.
