Argument Essay We live in a small world. People are always going to be rude, offensive, and uncivil, and that’s just how this world is. I am not saying everyone is though, but once in a while we see or hear that part of someone who just is not having the best of days and is being the rudest most disrespectable person anyone has ever seen and that automatically makes that person a bad influence in our society. Well I do not think it is, every person has kindness in them and generosity, regardless of where you are from. The society we live in sure has gotten a lot bigger since the old days, but the people haven’t change, at least not all that much. I think people get scared of being polite and kind now-a-days because everyone is afraid of others reactions and responses, no one expects it anymore. People now behave and act by how they see society so they must follow the ways of the world to fit in, at least that’s how I see it. I think that a lot of civility is common sense and common courtesy and I think that that is disappearing in some areas. I went to a mall and the number of people talking and texting on their cell phones who were bumping into others and seemed to be totally oblivious to it just amazed me. There was no "I'm so sorry!" or "Excuse me!" offered in the majority of cases. I understand that people can misjudge when they're doing two things at once - in this case, talking or texting and walking at the same time - but acknowledging the fact that you've just bumped into someone and apologizing for it is the polite thing to do. While some people tried to get out of the way of the texter/talkers, it wasn't always possible to do so because of the number of people around. I think some of the problem is also parents not teaching their children these manners. Also people seem to be more worried about interacting with strangers. I have had more than one time being worried to go up to a seemingly lost or

    Princess B. Towe English 101-017 21 November 2014 Argument Essay Why Smokers should Stop Smoking? It is a fact that most of the people who smoke are aware that it’s not good for them. Then why they continue smoking? Maybe they do it because they haven’t really become conscious about all the effects that smoking has. There are a lot of reasons they shouldn’t smoke and to talk about all of them will probably take me much more than a college essay length. But I personally think there are three important…
