    what do you consider as 'rude'

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by Cacian, Nov 20, 2011.

    I find people who ask about what other's sexuality is rude.
    I also consider people who walk into someone's house, invited or not, and then wonder into the the bedroom area, and start putting their hands in people's drawers looking through clothes extremely rude.

    It's not particularly obvious with me so I don't really get asked but I wouldn't consider someone asking my sexual preference rude. I'd rather they asked instead of offending me later out of ignorance. I do agree with the second point however. Not something generally done. I also hate it when guests don't take their shoes off in the house. I'm one for going barefoot myself.

    hmm thats hard
    Pointed comments in company,
    Please and thankyou are polite and notable in someone with manners, but not in those without.
    Grumpy old dears which I am trying hard not to become one.

    I consider making new pointless threads rude... Especially if one is told that it is annoying and still keeps it up...
    Honestly now, it is rude and very irritating.

    I always thought it meant blunt comments/opinions that were unwanted.

    would you say that someone you do not know who asks youto fill in a form say and put your sexual orientation not rude?
    I have never had to take my shoes off at someone's else house unless it is my family.
    why do you find that rude? is it to do with shoes not being for example clean?

    Well as to the shoes it's mainly cleanliness really yes.

    About the sexuality it'd probably make me feel more awkward than offended but that's understandable as it hasn't really been long since I've been telling people so once I've fully come to terms with it I'll be fine. As I said I'd rather someone asked if it meant they weren't going to offend me later with comments about picking sides and whatnot.

    Like a friend once, who made comments which were valid, but could have said something in private, rather than in front of friends.
    Girls with their PATCHY MAKE up. huh, three times though.
    rather than hey rainshine come to the loo.
    maybe not rude just embarrassed.

    I get it now.
    would that be more of a mistake or just being insensitive rather then being rude do you think?
    sometimes we don't think so we say things without being aware it might be rude.

    Snide comments are always rude.

    Going into someone's home you need to be on your best guest behavior. Here in Hawaii we always take our shoes off before entering anybodies home. It's a culture thing. Also, using the bathroom at someone's home, going number one is fine but doing that other thing, well... that's rude.

    Asking about sexuality can go both ways, what is the intention of the person asking? Are they a friendly or will there be consequences?

    I don't think asking about someone's sexuality is rude, unless they're asking so thay can apply certain judgements.
    I like to think as a people we have matured enough to be able to enquire about peoples sexual preference.

    For me, people who judge a book by its cover, especially online... because its something I run into allllllll the time.
    I also find it rude how people give dirty looks when they have never seen someone who has her own style. I've gone into wal-mart and had people stare at me because I happen to LIKE wearing my scarf around my waist over my capris as a sense of fashion...

    You'd think that, wouldn't you? But no, we still haven't gotten to the point to where most everyone people could be civil about it. In the US, at least. (Granted there are a lot of people out there that can be civil about it, but those few who can't make the most noise...)

    Anyway, I count ignoring people as being rude. Especially when they're talking to you or trying to help you.

    Isn't the point of having an unconventional fashion style to get other people to look at you? (Also, wearing a scarf like a belt doesn't sound that strange to me. I have seen scarves sold in Wal-Mart for that very purpose. :D)

    Fat jokes/comments are rude.

    Making assumptions about what other people are thinking is rude.

    I'm just saying I'd like to think that we can.

    And that's why I'm happy that I'm in Australia :)

    It's fairly good were I live. I think England's somewhat better about it than the US (in general.). I guess America's ideals are already very set in stone and people feel very strongly about them.

    I find the “have you ever shot someone”, “arrest anyone today” (any other police related question) annoying, almost rude. Not the question itself but the fact they did not look at my uniform or belt enough to relies I am EMS not PD.

    I find it rude when you're talking to someone and a third person interrupts. And it's about something else. That's rude.

    When using the internet at the library and everyone is concentrating quietly, then two or three people come in and start talking loudly to each other at their computers.... everyone is annoyed and distracted. I think that's rude.
