“Haiya, lelaki semua nih ego-lah! Ingatkan mereka semua terror sangat.”
Men has been generalised to be the egoistic species when it comes to gender war. Honestly, I agree to it. However, I do not agree that all men are the same.
Speaking on my behalf, I admit I can be quite egoistic at times but that does not mean that I ought to go around trashing the lives of others.
I don’t. That’s because I’m not a rude person.
Rudeness, like big government, is intrusive. And like big government, it is cancerous. Just as the shortcomings of one welfare state program beget another and yet another, so too do thoughtless behavior and rude remarks metastasize.
According to Wikipedia, Rudeness is the (apparent) disrespect and failure to behave within the context of a society or a group of people’s social laws or etiquette. These laws have already unspokenly been established as the essential boundaries of normally accepted behavior. To be unable or unwilling to align one’s behavior with these laws known to the general population of what is socially acceptable would be considered being rude. There is an order of severity as to what one might consider being rude; Impolite, Faux pas, Inconsiderate/Indifference/Selfishness, Offensive, Obscene and Taboo/a crime.
No matter how egoistic a man can be, or rather, no matter how egoistic I can be, I have no intention to be rude.
I’ve met many egoistic men in my life. Surely, they spoke a lot about themselves, I would just avoid them.
On the other hand, I’ve also seen too many impolite women out there too. Sadly, these people tend to leave appalling remarks that can hurt and haunt you for the rest of your life, especially those from close friend s and loved ones.
