What is wrong with people?

Why is it so hard for people to be polite and nice?

I mean this seriously.

Today, I let someone out of a parking lot onto a busy road since he would've been waiting forever had I not and nobody else was interested in letting him go. No acknowledgement whatsoever. How hard is it to lift your hand 5 inches into the view of a window to say "Hey, thanks for letting me out!"? I mean really.

When we got into that accident in January, ONE person stopped to ask if we were okay. ONE. I saw 3 people slow down to take pictures, but only one stopped to make sure we were fine.

And I see this all the time. You hold a door open for one person, 10 walk through and maybe 2 say "Thanks".

I don't get it. What is so difficult about a "Please" and a "Thank you"?

  2. Yes! I couldn't even believe what I was seeing. I thought they were slowing down to stop and help, but each time, they just rolled down their windows, stuck their phones out, and then drove off.

    Thanks, a-holes!

  3. It's Vegas. Wait until you get to North Carolina. Completely different atmospere. In Vegas you don't know your neighbors, it's considered creepy if you say hi or smile at a randon person... yea, you know. It's polar opposite in NC.

  7. Move to my town. People say please and thank you it's a bit annoying.

    Although, I don't know what I'll do if I move back home and people don't open my doors for me.
