Kim and I talk quite a bit about the complete lack of consideration that many people tend to have for other people, and quite frankly, it drives us both nuts. This is not only on the road, but out in public (i.e. at restaurants, stores, etc.) After a few conversations that we've had on the subject, I now have a tendency to actually look for the rude things that people do.

I have composed a list of the top 10 rude-ass things that people do (quite frequently):

1.      Not holding the door open for the person behind you, while entering a building. Also be sure to say thank you  if someone holds the door open for you. I don't hold the door because I am the door attendant; I do so to be polite!
2.      Talking on your cell phone at any restaurant, while in line or while cashing out at a store, or while driving. No, Mr. Douche Bag, I really don’t care to hear about your Colonoscopy prep procedures right before I eat my dinner.
3.      Not getting up and letting an elderly person or pregnant woman sit in you seat while waiting for a table at a restaurant. Get off your fat ass and let them sit! You will appreciate when someone does it for you!
4.       Speeding up instead of slowing down when someone obviously needs to merge (while driving). You're just an ass if you do this, and clearly deserve to get hit (when you do)!
5.      Asking your server 105 questions about a specific item on the menu and then ordering something completely different instead. Really?
6.      Under-tipping your server or not tipping at all. That poor girl/guy only makes $2.13 an hour. If you can’t afford to tip your server, than stay the hell home already. Or serve for a month, and see how you like it.
7.      Incessantly whining about gratuity being included on your bill at comedy clubs. Just to let you know, it’s on there because the cheap asses in # 7 don’t like to tip their servers, and have ruined it for everybody else, so you can thank them for the addition.
8.      If someone gives you his/her seat(s) while they are about to leave a crowded bar, THANK him/her. Don’t just look at them like they owed it to you. This is especially true for women that think that men are giving up their seats to hit on them. Trust me, you’re not that cute, and the guy was just trying to be nice.
9.      If you’re going publicly protest something, make sure you know WHY you’re doing it, and that the reason isn’t just to get on television. Otherwise you’re just really annoying us all.
10.  Acknowledge the people that you are riding on an elevator with. Small talk isn’t that painful, and if you don’t say anything, you just look stuck-up.

I have a feeling that after reading this, you’ll start watching people a little more closely too!


  1. Ummm for #8 - sorry but I am that cute. Duh have you seen my pantaloons!?

  2. Don't forget blowing their noses at the table in restaurants. Absolutely rude and disgusting. Get you lazy ass up and go to the bathroom. Not to mention it is usually into a cloth napkin that someone else needs to wash.

  3. OK Mel, you ARE that cute! And Nick you are absolutely right, that is VILE!
