Monday Morning Question of the Day

Do you think that people who are rude

(ex: short with you, tactless, say ugly things)

do so purposely and with knowledge of what they are doing


because they simply do not think about what they are saying?

So basically, is it purposeful or accidental?


  1. I think in our crazy hurried society, often times it is accidental. Sometimes people just don't take the time to think before they speak.

    But...there are those that are always rude - it's just a way of life for them.

  2. I think some people really are just rude, nasty individuals intent on hurting others.

  3. I think that alot of it depends on the person and the relationship. Some people speak without thinking first and then realize what they have said and wish they could stuff those words back inside and say it differently.

    Some people just don't come with a self censor button. And they say whatever they feel like, despite the consequences. And those are the types of people that I wonder about.

    I try to think before I speak becuase what I say has an impact and I would not want anything I said to be used against me, if that makes sense.

  4. I think quite a few are accidentally on purpose.

    Is that as clear as mud. ;-)

  5. I feel the same way as most everyone else. Some people just don't care what others think and say whatever comes to their mind, while others censor everything.

    I fall somewhere in the middle if I am completely honest.

    There are certain people and situations where I just let it fly so to speak. Especially with my family. Which is so completely wrong.

    Then there are times where I am very timid and should speak my mind and I don't.

    Does this make any sense?

  6. I sure hope that this is not in reference to running into me at the grocery store!

    I don't know about everyone else, but I say stupid things when I feel nervous.

    And when I'm being a jerk.
