    I find the lack of Common Sense in general public is growing.A freind of mine who owns a large fab shop mentioned those words when OHS &WCB were doing his shop inspection.He was told he would have to leave the meeting if he repeated those two words again!

    It wasn't an insult. It's just very likely they saw your behavior in the same way that you saw theirs, i.e. rude.

    One should learn what the effect of saying "Excuse me" or "Pardon me" would be.

    Well stocked small grocery shop within walking distance (about a mile or so).
    Conviniently small to pop in on the way to work at morning to buy one croissant, yet has enough selection for normal days(exept vacuum cleaner dust bags!)

    I lived in Butte, Montana, from 1978-82. It too had a population of 35,000. The people were descendants of miners, mostly. Old timers hailed friends across the street by their nicknames -- "Hey Easy Money, whatch been up to!"

    I thought you lived near Canon City (or Caņon City as it is called now). I haven't been through it since a visit in 1989. It seemed like a nice place then. The nearby Royal Gorge Bridge is a real wonder. I know it is a prison town, but that would not explain rudeness. Must be the state of the world.

    I live in the Los Angeles area, Pasadena to be exact, and go the the COSTCO in Alhambra. I hate that place. People running into your ankles with carts, blocking isles, waiting 10 minutes choking up the parking lot so they can park 20 feet closer, I hate the place, and Los Angeles in general. It literally looks like a third world slum here. I'm still shocked at the squalor that has developed over the past 10 years. The news reports do not do it justice. Unfortunately my work is here, but I plan on leaving California when I retire.

    I haven't noticed much rude behavior where I shop, but it is usually at Food Lion, in the suburbs, and often late in the evening when it's not crowded and there aren't many kids. Those I encounter are mostly polite and rewspectful.

    When you said "inner city", I pictured the rat and drug infested ghettos of Baltimore. I never go there, but many of the people who live there do not have easy access to supermarkets and must shop at corner groceries that have poor selection of healthy foods, and high prices.

    WoW. That in its self is pretty telling. JR

    I only care because my family unfortunately can be documented to the early 1700's in Baltimore. . Not a good time. JR

    Shopping?Meh,all the usual chain franchise fair,plus three or four independent grocers.Nothing really to complain about as far as selection.Now brain dead behavior by people,we got that in spades.

    Where I live it was the rise of smart phones that brought on brain dead behavior.Whatever latent idiocy a person possessed before buying a smart phone was amplified by a factor of ten after buying one.

    Around here they roll through stop signs and stop lights,or they sit blocking traffic through entire left turn signals.They sometimes can be seen going down interstate off ramps and when they show up at four way stops,they often don't know who has the right of way,because they were too busy binge watching netflix to pay attention.
    I just need one more tool,just one!
