The Rudeness Test

Can you recognize a rude person? Take this simple test.

How many of the following statements are rude:

    "You can't do anything right."

    "Why can't you be more like so-and-so?"

    "Where were you? ... I asked you a question!"

    "You're just saying that to make me feel good."

Did you answer "All of them are rude"? Did you notice the put-down, the disapproving remark, the control tactic, the cynical accusation? If you didn't, and you're dating, then you could fall victim to an abusive relationship.

How Rude! is a dictionary of rudeness -- a handbook of warning signs we should all watch out for. In 16 pages, How Rude! shows you how to recognize bad bosses, possessive partners, and other insulting individuals.

If you sometimes ask yourself,

then How Rude! is for you.
