  • Unfortunately it is a fact of life. For some reason these people think they are the ant's pants and can do no wrong. They are generally up themselves as well.
  • it could be something to do with their parents and the way they were raised. there are some ferals on the train that i catch to school - the mum lets he horrible kids run around with no restrictions and when she tries they just go more crazy! today one of the kids grabbed my friends bag and said "MY BAG!!" and refused to let go i can see those kids growing up and being so mean and arrogant and stealing thing s- terrible citizens plz dont rate me bad - i just lik etelling people stories lol
  • because they have nothing better to do than to deliberately hurt and torment other people. there are many nice people on AB, the majority, but there are a few who are really mean. unfortunately, you can't really do anything about them.
  • I believe that the biggest reasons might be insecurity, and unhappiness within themselves. They protect themselves from the world by building a wall, and hiding behind it. That wall is often the act of being inconsiderate (failing to realize that other people exist and having feelings), using hurtful words, and having an over-confident (and fake) presence.
  • I believe that all people, including myself, can be rude, mean and arrogant. That is because all people, including myself, are born egotistical, rebellious and disobedient. In other words, sinners. But you can be changed by Jesus. Then, whenever you hear someone or yourself acting in this matter you think, "No, it stops right now."
  • Because they don't have good things in their life...or they can't see good things in their life. And for some, it gives them a high of sorts...no idea why but I know it happens.
  • To make them feel better about themselves.
  • Because they have small minds and can't think of any thing else to be.
  • I wouldn't know, considering that I'm an overall nice guy. I'm guessing it satisfies a thirst for power.
  • Because they don't like themselves - so to feel better they like to drag others down with them
  • Well, then I guess it's the opposite of what makes you an overall nice guy. I'm glad most people I know are like you. :)
  • Maybe they were hurt in some way by people and feel the need to hurt others because of that -- it would feel like a revenge of sorts. Or perhaps they feel fear of some sort and it's their way of self defense.
  • There are many reasons for this: Genetics, past history, environment, ignorance, loneliness, psychotic condition, hormonal imbalance, lack of sex, lack of love...
  • Because they are full of ignorantance and are weak souls that are trying to act like they are bad asses and they have no respect for anyone and of course there self.
  • "we dont know what we are doing until it is already been done" we are insensitive to other people, we are self-centered. and there are "those" people we are just brought up differently, and dont know any better. or a horrible event made them bitter and apathetic
  • They engage their mouth prior to engaging their brain!
  • not all people are human.
  • Some people are rude to others in an attempt to make themselves feel better. It's a sad tactic to use. Others are just born with a stick up their bum.
  • Human nature. Just ignore them. They are there to remind yourself how wonderful you are.
  • They want to get back at someone for hurting them, so they try to hurt the other person even more. You know, paybacks a bitch...... They are heartbroken on the inside and the best way for them to express it is thru anger. They can't control others response, so if they don't like the response they get then they lash out. Teach them a lesson...... They want love but don't know how to truly except it or show it. They may have been raised in a non loving type family. They may have been tormented growing up. They may hate their life or certain things in their life, but can't change it. They don't connect with other humans well. They have a hard time trying to bond with anyone or keeping friends. They are lonely but truly want to love and be loved like all people. It's a terrible thing to be miserable and I don't wish it on anyone.
  • They're just bitter. Some elderly lady I stopped to try to give her a red rose and she said "No, I don't want it!" when all I was trying to do is pass some kindness along. Let them alone in their bitterness, we'll never be able to make them happy.
  • For the equal but opposite reason of why some people are polite, nice, and humble.
  • Some people like to think they're better than others....when honestly, what's "better" than someone else? I think that's a very closed minded way to think, especially when the so called people who are labeled freaks or weird are usually the most compassionate and loving people of all. I'm just saying. I think the world is mean enough...we don't need to be too.
  • could be because they are insecure. and it helps to drag down other people...
  • Some people are just petty and some have huge gaping holes in their emotional makeup.
  • they want to feel powerful.
  • They've never learned to be happy, basically. They are not the "social creatures" that many of us become, once we've found we are happier when others are around us. They have to "prove" that they are worth knowing, and the only way they know how, probably the way they were brought up, is to be rude, mean-spirited, and arrogant. They usually have a pretty high wall with a strong door, firmly shut in it. It takes the right person to get that door to open just that crack to show them they can be happy. That doesn't mean that it's easy on either, but...
  • because they dont know any different they look up to Dr House
  • 7-2-2017 Being a jerk pays. They have learned that most people will give them whatever they want just to get rid of them.
