Man on the Edge: How Do We Fix "Generation Rude"?
You've seen them on the streets, in their cars, in the malls... maybe even in your home. Young adults who have absolutely no clue about what's going on around them, because they're buried in their phone or tablet. They're oblivious to the rest of the world, which means they're on track to be the rudest group of people ever in history.
Call them "Generation Rude". A recent study found that people 18 - 34 years old are 23% less likely to perform common courtesies for people. Things like saying "hello" to their neighbors, or holding the door for elderly people. This is compared to the generation that's 55 and older.
And the reason is: they're too self-absorbed in things like smart phones and iPads. It's made them oblivious to the outside world, and ignorant of things that used to be expected of young people in society.
So with a generation of young adults ruder than ever before, how do we fix it? It's our question of the night, and Robert Wilder takes it to the streets.
