What is accomplished by rudeness? What makes us so strange to where we are the most intelligent creatures on the Earth, yet instead of controlling our emotions, we allow them to take control of us? What makes us scream and honk at people who make little mistakes on the road that won't hurt anything, or get mad at others during a game of basketball because they made a bad pass? Think about these. Will it matter in the long run? Can you not put your trust in God? Learn to not be rude, but gentle and uplifting instead.
