EQ is Emotional Quotient. It measures your emotional and social competence.

Back to the question: I would love to slap some rude people but then that would make me no different from them. So I would usually just ignore them, maybe complain about them somewhere or to someone and then move on with life.

Define rude.

There are those who will ignore simple matters of etiquette that irritate me to no end. Simple things like saying "thank you" when someone holds a door for you requires so little effort that it is almost more effort not to do it. Some people cut in line. Some people will circle a parking lot for 20 minutes to take a closer parking space. Some people walk shoulder-to-should on the sidewalk and get so busy chatting that no one in a hurry can get by. Turing the ringer off on a cell phone during a meeting requires a single button press; by not doing it a rude person sends the message that he literally will not raise a finger for anyone else. That sort of rudeness pisses me off.

Now there are people who are generally abrasive in their personalities. I am one such person. I can be extremely blunt, even cutting in my remarks. People generally love me or hate me quickly after meeting me. I don't have a problem with such directness. Sometimes a harsh word now is the greater kindness later. Enabling bad behavior through excessive gentleness does no one any good. So in that regard, rudeness is not a bad thing.


You draw a very interesting contrast. I too find those willing to speak up for themselves (up, not out) and what they feel, regardless of how blunt it may be to be quality characters. I'm a very calm, and laid back person, non-violent and very empathetic of others but when the time calls for it I am also very willing to speak up.


True. Those that speak their mind instead of hiding what they're really thinking are qualities that are actually often better than not saying them. I hate those girls who are sickly sweet, and everybody loves them, but really they're evil witches inside.

Of course, there are those who just generally annoy the heck out of me. But I ignore it and pretend that they can't help their personality (although they definitely can) and just try not to carry on conversations.

I can usually tell whether a person is being obnoxious or if they are being rude without realizing it. I'll usually forgive the latter, but I will not tolerate the former.

I remember some little prick (looked like some high school freshman) tried to pick a fight with me over fund raiser candy bars when I was going out to eat with one of my friends. I bought a candy bar from this poor-looking little girl just to be nice, but this jerk comes out of a crowd and waves his skateboard at me, telling me to buy another. I told him I needed the rest of my money for dinner several times, but he ignored everything I said, kept insisting I could afford another one, and then began shouting racial slurs about how greedy Asian people were. I had a knife in my pocket and was on the verge of drawing it and stabbing the guy. I was lucky my friend was there to stop me. She dragged me away and talked my senses back into me. I was fuming, but at least I didn't act. Although I wouldn't have minded decking him in the face.

The guy's friends came up to me and apologized for his behavior, telling me he was drunk. As if. I guess they were good for apologizing to me, but I could tell he wasn't drunk. He was about two feet away from me staring me down and I could see he was not even tipsy in the slightest. Just recalling it kinda pisses me off. I should've punched him at least.

Well, people who lack common manners annoy me. Seriously, a please and a thank you can go a long way.

They are a form of entertainment to me.
I enjoy looking at them screwing themselves up.
There's even one time when I just laughed at a guy who was really rude to me...
and he ended up embarrassing himself.

I admit that I was so cruel at the time...
