Only 14-percent feel society has moved in a kinder, gentler direction.
Just over half of those surveyed admit they’ve had to confront someone about their behavior in public, and men are more likely than women to have had a public confrontation.
Just over 60-percent believe the public is more rude now toward people providing them services than they were ten years ago. But 57-percent feel service people are more rude now toward customers than they were a decade earlier.
