There are so many rude people on a continual daily basis it is a wonder the kind and nice people are even recognized. I cannot stand rude people.  They have no right to treat others so badly. I was in Dublin City Center one time waiting for my son. I had just met with my illustrator and was waiting in front of a large book store.  He had walked down the street to buy a sandwhich at Subway. While I was there a young female came up to me and demanded money. I ignored her.  She started making rude comments claiming I was a rich American. She was wrong on two counts. First I am Irish by birth and second I was not rich. The worst part is she wouldn’t stop insulting me. I continued to ignore her and then her boyfriend showed up. He was even more obnoxious. Not one person said anything or even tried to help me. Finally my son showed up and as he walked towards me he saw what was happening.  He asked if I was okay and then he handed me his sandwhich and backpack. He told the couple to stop and began walking down the steps towards them. The young man knew he meant business. The female kept at me with rude insults and the boyfriend finally grapped her and left. We then caught the bus and went home.  The female just started on me for no reason. This is not an unusual occurance in many parts of the world including the states. People decide that they want something, that they should have it and you need to give it to them. In America I have been confronted by rude people in odd locations. The grocery is sometimes the worst. The people try to cut in front of you, insult you while you are scanning your products and in general seem nasty. The question that always comes to my mind is why. I didn’t do anything to them or say anything. There are times in the grocery when I open my mouth to ask for something and I am in Irish mode.  Some people love it and most ignore it. I just don’t think being nasty and rude is necessary do you? The Good Gus Series is available online at Kindle, Nook and Waterstones.
