I’ve written before about studies that show just witnessing people being rude to others reduces your ability to solve problems and worsens your mood.

Another study just came out reinforcing those conclusions, and says if you witness rudeness you’re more likely to make mistakes.

I’m in the process of creating a lesson on rudeness that I’ll share in my upcoming book and in this blog. If I use your idea, I’ll highlight it in this blog and send you a free copy of my book next year. Can anybody think of:

* Movie or television scenes that show teens being rude to each other, and their showing a brave face in public, but then showing how they really feel afterwards?

* Similar examples in fiction?

* Anything a famous figure has written about rudeness?

Other ideas are welcome, too!
