I donít think you can go in at Sonic. I think you can only order at the drive thru or one of those other car ordering machines. I tried ordering from one of those one time and I waited 5 minutes and no one took my order. I never tried one again. But yeah if I could go into Sonic that would be a lot easier.

That's a shame I've actually never been to a Sonic so I didn't know. What do they serve there? It's starting to sound delicious except for the poor service!

This rudeness is especially pronounced when it comes to cell phones. I have seen people order and pay for their coffee while talking on the phone. I have seen them out in eating establishments. I hate them in the movie theater. It seems like everyone thinks that what they are doing is so important that they get to be rude.

Default People are ruder lately?

Iím not sure if Iím just noticing rudeness more as I get older or if there does seem to be more rude behavior... I definitely feel annoyed with rude behavior. I have decided to make an extra effort every day to be a more considerate person. This is how I am coping with my annoyance at rudeness. Iím trying to be the change I wish to see in the world... so I let extra cars in even when I am in a hurry or donít really want to... I stand and hold doors and I try to be extra patient and kind with people on the phone at work. Stuff like that. It takes a little bit of effort so if I focus on paying it forward maybe I wonít be as focused and annoyed when people are rude... when that one car lets me in or somebody holds the door for me I feel really good that I am part of that too and somebody is doing the same for me. I also notice when Iím not very polite either... sometimes itís due to my absent mindedness and usually itís because Iím in a hurry. I am a work in progress too... I guess we can strive for a balance.... be as polite as we can and also give people some space because we all have bad days sometimes. People are ruder lately?

Ugh, cellphones. I cant blame trump for this - i almost killed a guy - okay, not really! - but it was a beautiful sunny afternoon at my apartment pool and some GUY is yakking about his job and his kid and his house and hiz stocks shouting at full voice facing over the pool - gah! At least face the other way! I couldnt figure out WHO he was talking to - his mother? His brother? He was sooooo bragging! And yes i had my earplugs in!

They serve all American food. Hot dogs, chicken, hamburgers, cheese fries. In the summer they have ice cream slushes. Which are icees mixed with ice cream. The blue raspberry one mixed with vanilla ice cream is really good. And their iced coffee is my favorite.

The main reason I like going there is they have their full menu all day. I think they open at 7. So if I donít want to wait until 11 for a burger and fries from McDonaldís I can go to Sonic and get one at 9:30AM when I am usually running errands.

I havenít gotten a reply from them yet.

People are more and more stressed today especially in the working field. I find there are some very rude people but they do not get much of my attention and i try to avoid it at all costs. There is no excuse to be rude.

Humans are continually oscillating between darkness and light. All of us across our lifespans. That has been the case since the beginning of humanity. Again, as long as there have been humans, there has been tribalism and bigotry and war. And there has also been compassion and courage and love.

People are frustrated. No doubt. And there are also plenty of hopeful people spreading light and love in the world. Look at PC as an example. Everyone here has suffered in some way. Many continue to suffer. And yet they are here offering hugs and empathy and hope to others regardless of their race or religion or class.

People are in too much of a hurry. They get stressed; then the rudeness spills out. What annoys me more are people who shout into their phones. I walked out of a restaurant once when a friend was taking a call, and not asking if I'd mind.


Oh, and chammers. People who talk with their mouths full, or interrupt me when I'm talking.

I hope I wasnít rude today. I was in the grocery store wearing my white jacket. Not a work uniform at all. An older man and his two granddaughters came up to me. The guy had an accent and was hard to understand and said ďcan I ask you something?Ē I had no idea what he wanted so I said ďyeah.Ē Then he started asking if the store had something and then one of the granddaughters who was about 9 asked me if I worked there. I said no. The guy gave me a look. And we walked away.

I had no idea what he wanted when he first came up to me and I felt like I would have been ruder say right off ďI donít work here.Ē
