Default Really old People From NY Who Are Rude, Jump Into Lines, Ea

Wash Their Hands and Blow Smoke In Your face

If we lump them together here ( old people are usually lumpy) we can eliminate a lot of threads. I, for one, am offended by such awful behavior by people who should know better. Even David and Banker would be hard put to defend them.

Is there no hope for us who are the perfect few? Must we be mistreated by the multitudes of rude old people? Nice young people of the world, let us rise and expunge the gross multitudes. Let us look forward to a brighter tomorrow when only those meeting our standards are allowed to cruise.

I wonder what it shall feel like being the only passenger on a ship?

Live and let live, yo'all!

They bash the rude New Yorkers too on here? I had one of my most fun cruises out of NY. I thought people were friendlier than any other port. Hey, those people are used to being crammed into a small space with many others. I bet they feel like they are in their apartment building.-just different neighbors. Talk about outgoing-you should see the lines to play the games. It must be a dream for the ship staff to have so many want to be involved.

I agree w/Banker (SHOCKING! :>) Hubby & I went to NY for the first time last year, and we spoke to many natives on the street, and we could not find ONE rude New Yorker! They were very helpful and friendly speaking with their NY accent! One even chastised us for waiting for the green light to walk (Do you see any cars coming?? he said!). How can you argue with that logic, I guess??? Wonderful, mahhhvelous place!

Perhaps there are now no more rude people in New York because they have all moved to Florida and are driving on the streets in the Fort Lauderdale area.

Hey, why do so many people dislike being called "ma'am"? It's just polite. The alternative is being called "miss," which makes it sounds like you're about 12.

Droopy Sails - you asked "why do so many people dislike being called "ma'am"? It's just polite. The alternative is being called "miss," which makes it sounds like you're about 12." The reason is that calling someone ma'am suggests that they look old and in our youth oriented society old is equivalent to ugly.

Better used is Madam.

1 pl. Mes·dames (m-dm, -däm) Used formerly as a courtesy title before a woman's given name but now used only before a surname or title indicating rank or office: Madam Ambassador.
2 Used as a salutation in a letter: Dear Madam or Sir.
3 madam Used as a form of polite address for a woman: Right this way, madam.
4 madam The mistress of a household.
5 madam A woman who manages a brothel.

Sorry about number 5

And personally I would hate being called Maam (not that it will ever happen).

Personally, I LIKE being called ma'am. I think it is a sign of respect. (I don't consider myself old or ugly, though others may beg to differ!)

Of course, being from South may make a difference. Most children are trained to say ma'am and sir from a young age. I even call people younger than I am, ma'am or sir!

JMO,

Hey I'd rather be called "Ma'am" than "Sir" - people get confused sometimes - it's all those dark hairs on my menopausal chin :o) TTFN Jennifer

I have to disagree. I am from Alabama and we were taught that saying Ma'am and Sir is simply a matter of showing respect. I am 47 and getting older....but have never been offended by the term ma'am.

I like that Southern Hospitality and manners!

I cannot believe that a month down the line that neither Banker or myself responded to this post when we are clearly quoted as justification in how tight your opinion was

Personally and as a smoker I agree. I hate other smokers who blow smoke into my face. And as a smoker all eating areas should be non smoking world wide.

But as a smoker who always washes his hands, please leave me in peace in the little corner of the ship, street, whatever. To have or take my drug in peace.

As for ships for the perfect few, you can keep them. What a total pain in the ass those folks would be to sail with

yeah - I agree with whatever David said! 8)

I will comment on the title issue. I was raised to use Sir or Ma'am as a salutation and sign of respect. We try to pass the same on to our kids.

Banker, I am sorry to say, but I really think David is prettier than you!

I do have to acknowledge than I am much too rude and old to cruise with the select few. The only redeeming factor is that I am not from New York. I am from Texas where most everyone is friendly.
