This is totally wedding un-related, (but I felt the same way when I was planning my wedding), but I feel I have to rant and it might as well be here. I don’t understand why people have to be unnessecarily rude all the time! It makes No sense whatsoever. I come in contact with people everyday that I smile at in hopes to get a smile back and all I get is a nose in the air! I go to college, and actually MOST people arent like this, but there are a few chosen ones who think they are hot s**t since they got into college. They are rude to their professors, and that burns me up! I mean, you’re there for your education, and Yes, you do pay them to teach you, but that is NO reason to say rude things when they are being nothing but nice. Also, On the interwebz. There are TONS of people that want to get online on a chat room or a forum to be mean. What is the point in that? Why do adults not remember the rule we were taught when we were young? “Unless you have something nice to say, Don’t say anything at all.”…How hard is that to grasp?
I’m not pointing this to anyone on here(Heck I haven’t written a post since I got married in December…I dont think), I’m just angry at the people that can’t keep their mouth shut when they need to. Just Be NICE! ya know??
Anywho…Thats all. I feel better. 🙂

I second you with being nice and I think it is important to be respectful. However, you don’t know what is going on in someones life at any given moment–maybe their dog just died or their grandparent and maybe they cant crack a smile. Maybe they just lost their baby….you dont know. So, at the same time, I think it is important to be understanding and forgiving and if it happens at another time witht he same person, then maybe it is appropriate to be upset at them, but most people are not just mean for no reason…

I totally agree…some people are just rude just for the sake of it.

Yep, I hate the “entitlement” attitude.
Also, something I consider rude much like what you’re talking about – I think it’s rude to go to a student job and act like you’re too good for it. I work for the library and everyone that sits around me except one girl is on their cell phone the entire time…and that’s not the point of being there! SO RUDE! Grr!
I think college kids suffer from this a lot more than the general population… mostly because the general population looks down on people for acting like that. Those people don’t get far in life…

Did you and I go to the same school with the same person? One student would regularly belittle the professor and act too good to be there. Really tho, she was a big bia and nobody liked her. So really, she just screwed herself over being psycho. Nobody’ll want to work with her after she’s out of school.

@Alishadhs4, I agree with you, and thats the reason i never act rude back to these people. But I mean the people that everytime when you see them or talk to them they go out of their way to say something mean. And yes, College kids are the worst. Its because they think they are better than the people who didnt go to college, and they are going to be better than the people already in the working world. I on the other hand am one of the ones just grateful to be here. 🙂 But Regardless, Rude people need to give it a break. I was on a wedding forum before I discovered weddingbee(names not mentioned). Actually the problems with the other forum is what prompted me to look for another forum, and I found you guys :D. ANYWHO, The people on there just TRIED to be rude to one another, Subtley of course, but still you knew. Actually I added one of the people on facebook(because the two cites were intertwined), and I posted the other day that I was getting a Mac. Yay! and she came back and pretty much bashed me for even thinking of getting one…My question is, how is it your business, and two, if “you Don’t have anything nice to say..” WHY say anything at all?

I totally agree with you. I feel like there are more rude people out there than polite. And online it’s too easy to be passive aggressive in a chatroom.
I always looked forward to the day I finally graduated college and entered the workforce, thinking everyone would finally act like adults and stop with the cliques and snarky comments, but sadly, I must report that it continues into adulthood.
I hope it makes you feel good about being polite! Sometimes it’s hard, especially when you see how nasty others can be, but keep it up!
