ashtray 10 Rude Behaviors

Using cell phones or text messaging in mid-conversation or during an appointment or meeting is one of the Terrible 10 Rude Behaviors issued by Johns Hopkins University. For what it’s worth, many rude cell phone users at least are aware of

their shortcomings. Cell phone users acknowledge that the devices encourage them to drive dangerously and behave rudely, but they also said the devices are increasingly hard for them to do without. Rounding out the Johns Hopkins list:

  1. Using cell phones or text messaging in mid-conversation
  2. Erratic/aggressive driving that endangers others
  3. Taking credit for someone else’s work
  4. Treating service providers as inferiors
  5. Jokes or remarks that mock another’s race/gender/age/sexual preference or religion.
  6. Children who behave aggressively or who bully others
  7. Littering (including trash, spitting, pet waste)
  8. Misuse of handicapped privileges
  9. Smoking in non-smoking places or smoking in front of non-smokers without asking
