    I KNOW! I don't get mad often, but when I do - WATCH OUT. Just ask my wife.

    This seems like some FEDERAL OFFENSE, you know?

My moms backpack and stepdad's marine corp jacket marked their spots to my right. Of course, this gap invited everyone and their stroller to try and squeeze through the people sitting along the curb. I don't understand why they could go through the cleared walkways, or even give a simple "excuse me." Nope, they just trampled over backpack, Marine Corp jacket and all. On veteran's day. Then came two mothers with strollers. Now I use the term mothers only in the technical sense since both were only 19 abouts and had their "little pimp" decked out in all the coolest clothes. He could even recite rap lyrics, such talent!.

    Well, these two parents began to kick aside my parents things so they could sit in their spot. I told them that the spot was reserved and they would be back from getting coffee any momment. I was then treated to a broken-english tirade about how you can't save spots and I'm just a fat liar. I showed them my stepdad's marine corp jacket, and they responded "I don't give a (explative) about the army. This is my spot and he can go die in Iraq." With that they sat in the spot and placed the double-wide stroller right in front of me. "Hope you can see alright, *%#%!"

    So yeah. If even a vet can't get respect on veterans day, what hope do we have for the rest of us?

    P.S. And where was the crowd controlling CM? Prentending not to notice. Firework CMs have never ceased to dissapoint me in their lack of action. Especially when someone is standing at the front of the no-standing section.
    Oh man I would of caused a scene. I might of actually hit those people for saying something so disgusting. THEN I would of demanded the CM take care of it and since he was pretending not to notice, I would of demanded to talk to his lead _AND_ his his home team manager. Normally, as a former CM I dont like to get my fellow CM's in trouble, but THAT is unacceptable.

    What happened with your mom and step dad came back?

    You know, Professor, I totally hear you on their rudeness, but reading your report, it seems like you also had an equal amount of disdain and disrespect for them in ways that have absolutely NOTHING to do with their lack of etiquette. This would be the following:

    1. Decked out in all the "coolest clothes." Okay, so you don't like how they dress.
    2. "...recite rap lyrics, such talent." Okay, so you also don't like hip-hop music. Got it.
    3. "broken-english [sic] tirade." ... Well, since you're a master of the English language, you should have known that English is capitalized, but I digress... So they couldn't speak English well. I'm sure I can fill in the blanks.

    So of course I'm not saying that they weren't out of line and completely rude, but it seems like you have a little bit of negativity and anger in your heart and head, too, which I'm sure couldn't have possibly helped the situation. Get that hate out of your heart before it's too late!

    Re: Rudeness on the rise at the Disneyland Resort

    I donít think rudeness is on the rise in todayís society. I believe that tolerance rather, is a little lacking. I think that we should be more tolerant especially in places like Disneyland. Tis' the season that itís crowded, we all know this. What happened to peace on earth and good will towards men??? I wonder how one can focus so much on the bad things that happen at such a magical place. Kids will be kids, and teenagers grow out of the obnoxious stage, you had your time, let them have theirs. They are just singing it could be worse. Plus in their defense that music is quite infectious. And we are all guilty of at least humming along once or twice. Also getting back to the kids, I donít think they were trying to annoy you or even meant any harm, they were just anxious to experience all the adventures waiting in the lands of tomorrow, fantasy, and such. How many of you wanted to watch a parade when your heart was set on riding space mountain. Kids have the least amount of patienceÖjust remember that. And if their parents got caught up in the magic of the parade too, are we really labeling them bad parents for that??? We canít be perfect al the time. As far as the fireworks fiascoÖ..I think weíve all been herded down the street like cattle at one time or another, itís not ideal, but it is reality. Disneyland is a popular place for everyone and it holds special memories for everyone so I think a bump here and a nudge there should be expected.

    Snow White? Is that you? Seriously, do you have little animated blue birds that fly around you all the time? I understand what you are saying, but you seem to be missing the point. These were not just energetic kids wanting to go on Space Mountain. These were spoiled little brats that whined and complained and were violently shaking the rope and causing it to hit me and anyone else making contact with it. The parents should have apologized for their little beasts and either told them to shut up and stop bothering other people or take them where they want to go.


    It all boiled down to in conveniencing others for the convenience of yourself.

    On the whole, politeness seems to be less valued than it was. It's the ones who scream who get their way. Bleh.

    Polite requests in my experience have been largely ignored.

    I'm hoping for a low-key day when I go on Sunday. Wish me luck!

    She probably only had this disdain for them after they proved to be vile and un-excusably rude. I personally think her anger and disgust is fully justifiable. If somebody told you your father should go die in Iraq, would you go 'and these jolly good ladies came and shoved their way in front of me?'

    Re: Rudeness on the rise at the Disneyland Resort

    i think that it's better to just shakes things off, cuz really no one can make you feel bad, only you have the power to make yourself feel that way...like my dad would say, "water off a ducks back, just let if roll off"

    Re: Rudeness on the rise at the Disneyland Resort

    I have only dealt with one rude person at DL:

    It was in July so it was hot (that is why I think she was so aggitated.) I was walking through Adventureland when I bumped into this woman, or shoved. I said I was sorry, made sure she was fine and started going on my way.

    She felt the need to grab my shoulder and and lectured me about how rude I was. I'm listened to her the entire lecture. Then she said, "you teenagers are so rude, why aren't you all in school during the summer, blah, blah."

    "I'm sorry, but I'm 22," I said and continued walking. I was just livid.

    I absolutely agree 1000&#37; that his/her anger was fully justifiable, and that what they said about Iraq was completely disgusting, wicked, uncalled-for, mean, cruel, vile, etc.

    But I still just don't understand what their clothes, musical tastes and manner of speaking had to do with it.

    I dunno, but her disdian, anger and annoynace is justifiable in my opinion. It shouldn't matter how she described them, perhaps their attitudes reflected in their apperance.

    For example, when I was 13 and was at disneyland, I was on Thunder Mountain and these kids were in the last two carts and at the end were screaming 'Fing this' and 'Mother fing' that. I could see a father with his 3 year old daughter in the cart ahead of me shaking his head in disgust, so I turned around and told him there were children on this ride who did not need to be exposed to that behavior

    Upon looking at them, these were thug kids with tatoos all over their body, spiked dyed hair and pircings all over. They were punks, their decription befitted their attitudes. (I am NOT saying that all people are like this, but they were like the stero-typical punk/gangsters)

    What happened after we got off the ride, they chased me down for telling them to stop cusing, and spit in my face. Again, a punkish thuggish attitude.

    Now, do you think when I'm describing this to somebody I'm going to say 'oh this teenager grabbed me and spit in my face.' no, I am going to describe what they looked like, how they spoke, how they acted and what they were doing. It may not have any bearing on the situation, but considering its what I went through, or in Professors case what they went through, it makes is feel better to explain the whole situation and what the person looked like.

    Let me ask you a question, why does it matter to _you_ so much that she went into the detail of what they wore and how they spoke etc?

    Sure, Lady Diamond, I'd be more than happy to answer that question for ya!

    It matters because I like rap music and I wear really cool clothes (haha), so I was taken aback when I read that. (However, my English is impeccable, nothing broken here, unless I choose to speak that way.) I wasn't offended, mind you, but I could see that those things bothered her. I would think that what they said to her about Iraq would have been worthy of her scorn alone. I didn't think the way they dressed and what kind of music they liked should have such a bearing on her impression of them.

    And furthermore, adopting that confrontational attitude against a certain "type" that was conveyed in that post doesn't really help the situation, believe it or not! It's not all about "us against those kids that listen to rap music and wear cool clothes" -- It's really not! That's no way to live your life in the 21st century. That's what I'm trying to say. The post read "He can recite rap lyrics .. such talent!" in a biting, sarcastic, mean way. Why? So there's no talent involved in rap music? If that's implied, that's a sorely ignorant stance.
