    I know the older cars with running lights, come on along with tail lamps. But those who've had them before, think that the newer cars do the same. But they don't. Time and time again, I've approached cars at night with no tail lights. They seem to think that if their running lights come on, then the back must be working. I feel bad, Because there's nothing I can do to alert them. And you never know if anything that you do will offend them.

    If their window is open, I yell. Who gives a shit if they're offended.

    100% agree. Ive stayed away from fb. Intagram or any other medium of social media..for 3+ yeats its anti social media to me
     I live just outside london u.k and some villages or small towns are nice but inner london people are rude inconsiderate. And selfish mainly. I do blame social media and also a big influx of different groups and communities and also commuting workers locked into the daily grind.

    folks can be lost in their own little world while out & about. maybe they're blocking the grocery store aisle with their cart & themselves, it's ok though. sure it gets under my skin a little bit but it really isn't something to get bent out of shape over. anymore i don't give a damn: i'll either say excuse me as i try getting around with hopes they will move over some, i may turn around & go through the aisle next over & come back around, that just means i walked a bit more which is good. i go out of my way to be polite & i could do better. i'm quite old fashion. all in all i don't give a shit & i feel this emotion is one of calm, relaxation, & easy go does it. a lot of folks are oblivious, good for them.

    if anything, i see this as a positive. it has really showed me who I don't want to hang out with in real life based on the videos they post and the opinions they express. I'm all for hanging out with people with different viewpoints, but when those viewpoints involve intolerance and bigotry....SEE YA.

    Ah, chadwick...this is a great attitude to possess.  I do try to do the same, but when inconsiderateness seems to have become the norm instead of the exception, it sticks in my craw.  I can handle the once-in-a-blue-moon asshole, whether or not their assholery is intentional.  I can't help but get pissed off when I just want to pick up a few things at the market during lunch and it's like an obstacle course.  Or being held up in traffic, missing lights, almost getting hit, because someone else can't put their phone down for a few minutes and pay attention while comandeering a two-ton vehicle.

    I just can't for the life of me understand how people are so self-involved that they can't be aware, even in a remedial sense, of their surroundings. I think I can be a little too sensitive to that sometimes, where I'm overly aware of moving out of someone's way where it might not even be necessary, but it bugs me.

    I am just as annoyed by these people.  I would say that I lean towards the hyper-aware category as well and it annoys me to no end when I see people staring at their phones nonstop or driving like no one else is on the road.  These are most likely the same ones blocking isles at the grocery store.  I have no problem grabbing their basket and pushing it to the side.  I may get a stink eye out of it, but that’s the most of it.  Self-involved or just flat out ignorance...

    it just boggles my mind that we as a society require signage that states "please finish your phone conversation before approaching the clerk". Like, seriously? adults need to be told this shit?

    That and the constant threats that you will be thrown out of a movie theatre if you talk on the phone during the movie...Some people just have to be told what to do in every aspect of their lives evidently.

    I somewhat knew who the racists, bigots, and assholes were in my life before Facebook. But reading their hate rants on Facebook makes me sick and embarrassed that I know them. Then when I see them in person at a soccer game or in the supermarket, they act like it's all good. No problem. Like you didn't just say "All queers are going to hell" on facebook. It's sickening.
