    Even with that, I still belive that most people are basically good, many are even kind. Just need a way to work around the ones who are not.
    for someone who is at the park as much as CUatDL to have this perspective... it should be taken seriously.

    The problem is we don't see the "them" as real people. Only we are the real people. When we start to see ourselves as the constant target of rudeness and general social illness, then we place ourselves in a victim/holier-than-thou role. The reality is that if we get angry over little things like a spot in a parade or a five person difference in line, it's not that society is become more rude, its that we are becoming more angry.

    So... take up yoga or something.

    I did take it seriously - and I read it - I just didn't comment on it. I think there are many GOOD people, but many 'negative ones' as well.

    Wow, just plain wow! This is what I was thinking, but you said it so very much better than I did. I don't know about others, but I really, I mean I really am working on the "not getting upset over the Chicken S..., little things in life". If everyone took your advice and didn't get angry over the little things, we could have a much less angry society, and it might, just maybe be a little better place to live. thejoshualee, thank you for your perspective! It makes a difference to me.

    Just MHO, YMMV,

    I agree. You can't let the little things in life get to you - but the big things - they are a little more difficult. I agree 100%.

    Good points, T-Gel, but I also think it depends on the circumstances. I've been trying to extend more grace when it comes to driving, and the last time we went to Disneyland, we watched two cars battle it out like it was life or death. As far as we were concerned, we let a few cars cut in front of us, and by the time we got to the tram, all was basically forgotten.

    But for the story earlier about some lady showing up just before the show, making disparaging remarks about Veterans, and eventually shoving the guy's stuff out of the way when it's perfectly "legal" to save your spot and come back (please don't tell me they would rather have us pee in the street), and THEN making the comment about hoping he gets killed in Iraq...if I had been sitting nearby and heard that conversation, I would have verbally been on that lady like white on rice. That's just wrong on so many levels.

    Now...yelling at that nimrod would probably take some of the shine off of my Disney day, but I feel there are times when SOMEONE needs to say something when an injustice is taking place. Cut in front of me, I'll probably get over it. But bully someone at Disneyland when I'm standing nearby and I'll very likely pop a cork. Sometimes severely narcissitic individuals need someone to tell them that they are NOT the center of the universe.

    Re: Rudeness on the rise at the Disneyland Resort

    This was probably said already so forgive me if it was. Far too many of us (myself included) focus way too much on the negative.
    Theres always going to be someone somewhere who isnt happy with something in the park.
    In the end its up to you if YOU have fun or not. Not everyone else in the world.
