I’ve noticed a creeping lack of civility overtaking our society.
Whether it’s the shopping cart left unattended in the middle of the aisle while the shopper chats on their phone, oblivious to all who are impeded by this thoughtlessness, or the self-important person allowing the door to slam shut in the face of an obviously disabled individual. The rampant lack of common courtesy and manners is stunning and offensive.
We can’t blame all of this on the problems with our economy, and we can’t blame it solely on the self-contained “bubble” effect created when we’re on our phones, tablets or music devices. We have to own this problem and prevent it from getting worse.
