What Is It With Rude People?

I can't believe how rude and intolerant some people are getting these days ....

The bus driver had a real go at my Daughter this morning for only having a 20 note to pay her extortionate fare from Accy to Rocky. He told her bluntly that she must bring the correct money in future.

The ironic thing is she is getting her own car at the beginning of July, so won't damn well need his bus .....

Re: What Is It With Rude People?

It's legal tender and bus drivers ARE supposed to accept 20 notes but ONLY if they can reasonably give enough change without depriving the next few passengers of the coins.

PS. When we had all that snow in January I'd been waiting 25 minutes for a bus and decided to make a tiny snowman on the wall next to the bus stop. An old woman had a right go at me for 'messing with the snow/disturbing it' and after declaring she'd waited long enough for this bus and would come back in half an hour for the next one, she trotted off so I quickly built a whole fleet of snowmen all sitting in a queue for the bus before I, too gave up and went home. Buses didn't run for about 5 days after that so I hope that she returned to get annoyed with my snowmen. Bet she whacked them all with her walking stick. And they say young people are rude.

Also, if I'm in a queue for a bus and elderly people are in the queue behind me, some look offended if I get on before them. I didn't realise being older gave you automatic right to go first in every queue.

I dunno why, but that's really tickled me this morning! It sounds like a Little Britain sketch!

Re: What Is It With Rude People?

I'd have loved to have seen the queing snowman, Squiff - brilliant.

Have to say people who are working in shops these days do appear to have no customer service whatsoever. The amount of times I've had to interrupt people who were chatting in shops to try and ask a question is unbelievable - and they look at me as if I was the rude one?!

Re: What Is It With Rude People?

I was in Pizza Hut in Leeds last weekend, the lad in there provided some of the nicest customer service I have received - polite & courteous etc.

I told him he was working at the wrong place lol

Re: What Is It With Rude People?

Mmm, I'm not married but salepeople always phone up and ask for 'Mrs (my surname)' which would be my Mum. I always put 'Miss' on forms or whatever so if they can't get my name right, I won't talk to them.

Last week, I kept getting annpoying calls from BT. When they phoned for the 5th time that day and asked to speak to 'Mrs (my surname)', I asked them to hold whilst I went to get her. Problem is, my Mum lives 1000 miles away and it's a long walk so to pass the time I quickly flicked onto YouTube and left the caller listening to the Wombling Song. He'd gone when I got back to the phone (and after all that my Mum was unavailable to take the call anyway).

Re: What Is It With Rude People?

Squiff, sounds like a good idea, next time I get a salesperson on the phone I'll refuse to hang up, which should hopefully jam up the callers line. I've also decided to start returning junk mail in the pre-paid envelopes...all shredded of course, just so that they have to pay the postage. Maybe if everyone in the country did this it would put them off. Or have I just got too much time on my hands?
