Where Is New Jersey The Rudest? [POLL]
For all the nice people surrounding us each day here in the great Garden State, we do see our share of rudeness, don’t we? The question is, where do we see the most rudeness?
There are definitely certain places that certain people think it’s ok to be as rude as they want to be. You haven’t been in New Jersey long enough if the first place that comes to mind isn’t our glorious roadways. From faces to gestures to tailgaing to beeping to cutting off to slamming brakes, the roadways in New Jersey are perfect breeding grounds for rudeness.
And drivers on our roadways make no apologies about it. It’s almost like it’s become accepted behavior. That’s not good. But the roads aren’t the only place we see the rudeness.
When our car pulls off those roadways, we have to park, right? As I mentioned yesterday, you certainly better get ready for a dose of rude in the supermarket parking lot. Whether it’s a parking spot or shopping cart etiquette, you better be prepared for a parking lot full of rude. And don’t even get me started on the search for a spot when you’re holiday shopping. Despite what the late Andy Williams used to sing, it’s not always the most wonderful time of the year!
I also think lines, and I mean any lines, bring out the rude. It doesn’t matter if it’s a line at Motor Vehicle, the boardwalk, the supermarket or the amusement park, lines create rudeness. It seems as if the more time we have to stand there and think about it, the worse it gets.
It would be nice if we were always nice, but then it wouldn’t be New Jersey. It just means we appreciate it more when people are nice…or at least that’s what we keep telling ourselves!
