I am by no means without my quirks and habits and mistakes. However it seems that lately...in the past five years or so, people are forgetting their manners and are being down right rude and invading of my space.
I don't like hearing others conversations on their cell phones & Blackberry when I'm out for a social time. Are they that important they have to stop everything and take every call?
Yesterday I popped into town to pick up some essentials and was unloading my grocery cart when the clerk asked me a question. I stopped and looked over to her, answered the question and then turned back to my buggy. Well I was only half way through unloading and the woman next in line had already put in the order divider and was proceeding to shove all my stuff forward so she could get her things on the conveyor belt.
She was not happy when I shoved her stuff back with the divider and told her it was my turn at the checkout, she should wait until I was finished. She was my age and I still do not know what was going through her mind that she would have done such a thing. I can only chalk it up to a 'meno' moment and the heat.
It is my opinion that we stopped teaching civics in school way too soon! No wonder the world seems crazier each day.
