Remember when if your parents asked you for help you actually helped?WITHOUT complaints? WITHOUT saying I don't wanna, but just doing?Remember when your name was said once to get your attention and not 6 or 7 times?Remember pardon or excuse me instead of WHAT..?!?!? or burping or farting with laughter?Remember the days where if your mum or dad said no or stop it, it meant whatever you were doing,no matter what it was, it was dropped and didn't matter how much you wanted to do it,you didn't cause you couldn't?Remember when if your parents said give it to me, you handed it over without a word of complaint?Remember when you were told to go to bed meant you went straight to bed whether you were tired or notand if your were thirsty or wanted anything you had to ask nice and politely to get out of bed to get it?Remember when if you saw something in the shop and you asked for itand they said no, you were sad but didn't complain or whinge.Remember when you wouldn't even dare tell your parents to shut up even under your breath?Remember when PLEASE and THANK YOU were commonly used in almost every sentence?!?!?Remember when excuse me mum/dad was usedinstead of repeating and repeating louder and louder when mum/dad are already talking?Apparently parents these days don't remember this.Apparently parents these days give into their kids every whinge and complaint just to 'shut them up'.Apparently, if mum or dad asks for help, it means I can maybe get to it,by the time I finish doing all my stuff,and hopefully, by that time, mum/dad will have done it anyway.Apparently, kids these days have VERY selective hearing,and can only recognize their name after the 7th time it has been said.Apparently, pardon me, or excuse me, is for adults only, and is not needed.Its better to just laugh about all of the rudeness.Apparently, kids don't need much sleep these days, going to bed when mum or dad do,and then getting up for school is enough.No matter what the studies say about kids needing more sleep.And if I don't feel like going to sleep even if mum says I have to, it doesn't really mean I have to...It just means I have to be quiet enough for her not to notice I'm not in bed.Apparently, if mum says no, that now means that not really and I can keep going til she really yells.Apparently, no in the shops mean that I can whinge and sulk til I get it... And I will get it eventually.Apparently, shut up mum/dad is common and even swearing at the parents is nothing anymore...Apparently, I WANT is used more then please, and I don't even know what thank you means...Apparently, mum and dad respond to loudness more then politeness...And that ladies and gentlemen is why I firstly, don't wanna pop out any babiesanytime soon, and why I am scared about what the world is coming to.I don't know about anyone else's childhood, but I don't think I had itany harder or softer then anyone else..I just don't like what I see now.Oh, I get that not all children are likethis, HOWEVER from what Ihave seen, it is becoming more andmore common.

I have a thing that bugs me at work and i don't know if its just me, or does everyone get it too?
This morning on the way to work, i was on the train and a guy was going around with some coins and saying, 'excuse me, do you have a spare one dollar' to almost every person he saw. (He didn't come to me, probably 'cos i had headphones in, but he was loud enough so i could hear him).
- Homelessness is the condition and social category of people who lack housing, because they cannot afford (pay for), or are otherwise unable (or uninterested) to maintain, regular, safe, and adequate shelter.
- The term homelessness may also include people whose primary nighttime residence is in a homeless shelter, in an institution that provides a temporary residence for individuals intended to be institutionalized, or in a public or private place not designed for use as a regular sleeping accommodation for human beings.
- An estimated 100 million people worldwide are homeless

But also has the arrow buttons on the right hand side, cause sometimes buttons are needed, obviously.
I have a problem and it annoys me every time I see, yet people continue to do it and I want them to be banned from using outlook when they do.
My issue is people who can't tell the difference between the 'subject line' and the body of an email.
Let me clarify:
This is not good enough for me.
I accept people who don't use the subject line. I am guilty of that myself.
But I can not stand it, when people put the full email in the subject. Its called the 'SUBJECT' line, not the 'full email, lets try and fit as many words in as possible' line.
I don’t care how short your email is going to be, it will never be too short to not use the email body.
Oh, also, I hate it when someone sends me an email and the VITAL info is ONLY in the subject line. I hate it so so so so (times a lot) much. It means I have to open the physical email to copy that information, and with the *awesome* computer that I use at work, it means that EVERYTHING freezes. (so not a lie, trust me, if you worked where I did, you would know).
Ps. I have no idea who's email address that is, so you all should totally email it and find out!!

- People who don't stay to the left ANYWHERE. This means, escalators, stairs and just general walking. See that space on the left who no one is standing still, that's cause people walk up on that side, which means you standing there is not only stupid, but is disturbing every other person on the escalator/stairs. So don't. Even though i have no followers *yet*, Amercian's to you, i guess this means the right.
- People who don't allow people to leave before they can arrive. Yes, this train is full, so in order for you to be able to get on said train, the people currently on it, need to get off, which mean you need to move.
- People who walk up the escalator or stairs *YAY to you doing something right* so slowly that they may as well be standing still. *BOO to you for doing that*
- Couples. Nuff said.
- People stopping at the top of escalators/stairs. You had all that time to work out where you want to go and you decide at the very top, oh, i forgot again, do i want to turn left or right, or go straight ahead. Not hard choices people.
- People who are slow getting off an escalator. I don't know if this is just me, or what, but the teeth at the end of the escalator freak me out like nothing else, and if i am anywhere close to them and not able to step far away from them, i start getting irked and just no.
- Loud talkers. Whether you are talking to another person who is next to you, or on a phone, no one cares about what you are talking about, so hush.
- Seat hogs. So i have to admit, sometimes this is me, BUT if i can see that someone needs a seat, i would stand up rather then have to sit next to someone. I don't mind the standing, but the personal space sharing, not for me. AND if you have three people in your "group" you don't need to spread out on 2 three seaters. Really, you do not need that much room, especially in peak hour.
- MUSIC. I get that music is good to listen to, rather then the loud talkers or the announcements that you hear all the time, nevertheless, peoples music tastes differ. While you like not so great music, i enjoy better music. Therefore, shush.
- Elderly - I love the old people. Really, love them. They are back from the "better days", when people had respect etc etc.. But it really makes me cross when someone older gets on the train and no one gets up for them. I dont care where you are from or what seat you are on, its simple. They are old, you are not as old. They win. Same goes for people with babies growing inside them. They can grow their own people, you can not, (or not yet). They win.
