Earning My Ears
- Jul 28, 2012
It's not you. People are rude and it's getting worse all the time. I guess it's not just Americans either. The large groups of people/teens are super rude. Another poster wrote (and I agree) all you can really do at this point is positively reinforce good behavior when you see it. Praise the few individuals/children who act in a kind, well mannered way. I raised two kind sons, even when they were like 10 y/o they would get up out of their seat on the bus if an elderly person got on, or a mother with an infant. I didn't have to tell them. People have become lazy and have opted to be their kids best friends instead of doing the hard work of being a parent. Kids need rules. Kids actually are happier with rules and parents that give guidelines. The problem is, nowadays most parents were raised by parents who didn't expect good behavior. So the problem is becoming generational. I fear it will only get worse as time goes on.just a bit of a rant here, but it seems like every year I go to Disney, the people get more and more rude, pushy, and overall unbelievable with what they let their kids do.
A day has not gone by where I have not been stepped on, slammed into, or pushed. All for these people to get ahead 30 seconds - or in the case after the fireworks, to get no where fast. Or stopping in the middle of walkways, when there are people walking behind you, just to look at their phone or a map, or talk. Running people over with strollers. No im sorry ever muttered.
Let's talk about the amount of children I've seen standing on chairs at shows, jumping on them- in the middle of dark shows. Completely limiting the views of those behind them. And the mickey ears- no one takes them off for shows anymore, again with the view problems.
And the masses of phones and external lighting at the fireworks! It's terrible!
It's unbelievable how completely oblivious, rude, and self centered 75% of the people currently in wdw are.
Rant over, for now. Ann I just overly sensitive or does everyone experience this nonsens?! Will enjoy my remaining days!
