Rude Behavior Exposed

Hi Everyone, I would like to share with you a list of inconsiderate behaviors that I have compiled over the past year. These rude behaviors were the most popular among my viewers and myself included. They have come to my attention from daily life as well as from my viewers who have written to me in frustration over rude behavior that they have had to repeatedly deal with. I thought we could all benefit from knowing what bothers people and try to be more sensitive to others around us. Feel free to share in the comments area, any inconsiderate behavior that you feel should be included on this list to help others realize what they should be sensitive or compassionate to. l. The most common complaint from everyone who wrote me was how annoying it is when people talk very loud or even yell into their cell phones in a public place. Many have sited this problem on trains, buses, department stores, fitness centers, even libraries. Use your lowest voice possible when in public around others. 2. Driving too slow in the left lane (high speed passing lane) on the highway and holding up traffic behind them. 3. Not keeping control of your pet. Either not keeping it on a leash in public, or allowing a dog to come too close to someone else, especially a child. 4. Cutting in any line; including cutting someone off who is waiting for a parking space. 5. Texting or answering cell phone when in a conversation with someone. 6. Driving too close to cyclers or walkers on the side of the road. This is very dangerous. Many drivers get annoyed when they have to slow down for someone walking or cycling. Remember, pedestrians have the right of way before cars, always! 7. Not stopping for someone in a crosswalk. 8. Letting children run wild or make excessive noise in any public place. 9. Not turning off your cell phone in a quiet place like a movie or play. 10. Not cleaning up after your pet's poop. 11, Talking while someone else is talking so that you are both talking at the same time and neither person hears what the other one is saying. 12. Staying on fitness equipment longer than the allotted 30 minutes during high use times. 13. Dropping weights on the floor in the weight room. (They should be placed down quietly.) 14. Failing to signal before making a turn. 15. Tailgating someone who is doing the speed limit. Most people simply ignore rude behavior, many times to avoid confrontation that could escalate into something serious or dangerous. This is good common sense. Your best bet is to stay pleasant if you need to make a point. For example, "excuse me, but I believe the line forms behind me." to someone trying to cut a line. Remember, don't take it personally, very often people who are rude to you are rude to most people they come in contact with, and the problem is with them, not you. Usually their feelings of annoyance stem from within themselves and toward themselves, and they are merely taking it out around them. So if someone is rude to you, take a deep breath, blow it out, then ask yourself if it is worth you getting angry over. The answer usually is "no". So laugh off their bad behavior and move on. I hope you enjoyed this list and that it helps enlighten you to how others feel about certain rude behavior. See you on YouTube, YouTips4U

  1. Hi,
    I loved your segment on making red clover tea.. It was the first time that I saw your post/s. I use a thermos to let my infusions settle and also they stay hot (for a while anyway).
    My endometrium went from 2mm to 11mm in just 2 weeks while drinking red clover tea. Thank you for your lesson on making the tea.
