I’ve come to the conclusion that the only way to deal with rudeness is simply to utter the word rude. My pal in London Maggie came up with this simple solution. Sometimes there is absolutely no merit in dealing with an ignorant person. Their rudeness and inability to be civil is their problem, not yours. Not mine.

In saying RUDE either silently or under my breath quickly enables me to move on quickly and forget the unpleasantness, rather than fuming and continuing to fume, for hours, days, weeks. Thank you Maggie for simplifying what can be over-laboured. RUDE. That’s it. done and dusted.
