Ivy, I totally understand your anger. It is well deserved. I live in a college town and some of the college kids are SO RUDE. Not only do they do the things you mentioned, but they let doors go just in time to slam into you if your arms are full (and they LAUGH about it right in front of you!). They push you out of the way if they want to look at something you are looking at, it is just totally rude and horrible. But there are some considerate ones. Usually the ones who look grungy or are into "alternative" looks like mohawks, all the goth stuff, etc.... are the POLITE ones. It is the boys and girls wearing clothes that cost more than my weekly grocery budget who are so RUDE and AWFUL. At least that is my experience here.
the guys who are into the cowboy look, or who work on the farms and ranches around here are also very helpful.
