Someone quoted this maxim to me,so I don't know who said it and I may get some of the wording wrong, but here it is. "Maturity is not a matter of age. It is a matter of a personal responsibility." I know SO MANY people who are even in their 60's and still not mature! By 26 I had been married and widowed with one child and I had been on my own for 6 years.
As rudeness is becoming increasingly common in our culture, Americans are finding it more difficult to work with each other. Far too many people now lack morals and manners. The U.S. has become a materialistic culture full of self-interest and lacking in respect for humanity. The outward manifestation of this is an inability to get along with others.

This culture of rudeness has deeply impacted the workplace environment. Too many Americans cannot hold jobs because both employers and employees refuse to behave civilly towards each other. There is less forgiveness and there are fewer efforts being made to solve...
