Have you noticed people aren’t as polite as they once were or that rudeness is no longer an exception but a lifestyle? Sure you have. All you need to do is set foot outside your door to see that bad manners are taking over everywhere. Just look and you’ll see:
People yak on cell phones in restaurants, and even at church.
Folks in carpools wear enough cologne to make your eyes bleed.
Family outings to the ballpark are ruined by rowdy drunks.
People talk in movie theaters like they are in their living rooms.
Well, Whoopi Goldberg has noticed all this and more and asked herself, “Is it just me?” Unleashing her trademark irreverence and humor, her book of observations takes a funny and excruciatingly honest look at how a loss of civility is messing with the quality of life for all of us.
