Interesting that she uses the term "them" when she's standing in the freakin' line too! Wonder if she owns a mirror....
Nah, I didn't make contact. I was exaggerating. I just used it as a blocking mechanism.

I would have tapped her on the shoulder and went "Maam, wake up, your *****y attitude is showing."

The thing is if I let the mom ahead of me she would have blocked the door with the stroller and she was holding a child. The appreciative mom understood and went to the side so purposely not to block the entrance. The other person was odd, maybe she was over-caffeinated.

As you get older you get less tolerable of the snow and cold.

I'm not sure quite how to respond. But my first instinct isn't ladylike.

Wow, maybe by "them" she is referring to that fact you are a man. Maybe she is a man-hating *****. IDK.

I would have said, "THEM?! Excuse me lady, please explain to me what your trying to say."

Honestly though, so many people are completely obnoxious. The funny thing is, I'm a good natured kinda guy, but I always see people act like absolute ****s and it pisses me off. Sometimes it's the little things that get me the most. People cursing and screaming about being held up for 2 seconds.

Yesterday, while waiting in the hour and a half line for my train, some lady walked up to the guy in front of me and asked him what line this was (R3 to Media/Elwyn). The guy legit did not hear her because he had headphones in. The lady says, "Thanks for your help, *******" and walks away. By the time the guy turned around to see what she wanted, she was gone. I mean, hello, get a grip lady. We have been standing in line for an hour, no one needs to answer your question in 2 seconds. Have a little patience. Maybe the guy is deaf or something. Don't be a ***** about it.

Rude people piss me off. I see it all the time in Philly. Far too many loud, obnoxious and ignorant people in the city for my liking. And the attitude on top of it, it's so puzzling, like they blame me for all the messed up **** in their life because I bumped into them at a crowded Dunkin Donuts trying to buy a coffee. Its not even one age group or something, it's everyone.

It's everywhere too, not just Philly. But I totally get what you're saying. The way people will speak and things they will do to perfect strangers with hardly any reason or provocation leaves me slack jawed sometimes.

It is absolutely everywhere. And it shocks the hell out of me when I hear blatant rudeness. I then mentally subtract a bunch of IQ points from the speaker, and carry on.

Hahahaha... Pretty sure you and I probably tick the same age band box on a questionnaire!

I've seen ads for that game too, but I've never played it.

we have people at work, who talk down to people.Some of them are in management and supervisor positions.
There are some people who I wont even talk to at work because they piss me off so much.
One woman talks to everyone like they are a child. Cant stand the *****.
I mean really, you cant show respect to people when engaging in a simple conversation? I feel like saying you can take your holier then thou, i have a college education and you dont attitude and stick it up your ass.
But I like my job and dont want to throw away 24 years at my workplace on some ******* with a condescending attitude.

I try to be nice to everyone, but I hardly ever get it back. Lately I have turned to the "iPod headphones in your ear even if they are not on" move just to be left alone.

Homeless people in Philly actually piss me off tho. The same ******* CLEAN SHAVEN dude every day. Seriously, go **** youself!

Ok, maybe I'm not the nicest guy in the world, haha.

I'm Irish (duh) and I get the "throatie". It sucks. It grows under the chin before it's even noticeable on the face.

I guess I'm fortunate that I don't have to do it everyday. I can go a few days between shaves.
