Today, I bumped into a lady in the New Jersey airport. After I politely apologized she said, "Watch your step, asshole." FML

Manners went out of style in the early 90's. It seems you won't make it anywhere in this world if you're polite to others. People seem to take it the wrong way and see you as even more of an asshole than you really are. If you were even one in the first place.

The correct response was"**** You!!"

Wrote all that and still got first. Good job.

I cheated, darling, and edited while I still had time. Originally it was just the first statement.

it's not just people in new jersey.. come to vegas.. or really any other place besides tiny towns.. not a fml, just a fact of life

Pyrite is SO much worse! You're considered rude if you're being polite. Fuhohohoho!~ Such a backwards town! Oh, but I love it so!~

I would have told her to watch her step before she had the chance to tell me to. oh, and promptly followed by a simple "**** you"

-37 People in Texas are nice, where the hell do you live? And in general, USA is more polite than the rest of the world

USA is more polite? I am pretty sure the US has firmly cemented itself as the prime asshole of the world. But do not worry, the US will be supplanted by China in the very near future.

#21 very clever, never thought of that. OP: Shit happends. did you really had to post this on FML? definitly not deserved but neither a FML...

Wait, people actually wear clothes while commenting? *blush* 25: Not in Nashvegas. In a lot of Southern cities, people are generally nice to your face. They make up for it once you're out of earshot. :}

Stay in LA or Southern California. People will apologize if they're even slightly in your way or brush by you. It's super chill.

54 - because you're looked at as easy if you take pictures in just a bra.

I live in NYC and most people are pretty nice actually, the rude people come from jersey

I agree. And plus, it's f***ing JERSEY man.

that's jersey for ya. oh, sorry, joisey. forgot the accent

No. The only people who say "joisey" are Jersey-wannabes. I'm from Jersey and if you were to say "joisey" you'd get hit in the face.

you should be like shut up bitch and I hope ur flying back to kitchen! that would shut her up.

I watched a documentary about this on BBC, Britain is the worst in Europe due to less holidays, more minimum working hours, etc. Don't know about the USA.

Actually, the ignorant, judemental people with no common sense are from NY.

114 texans aren't nice (and I'm saying this bcuz I've been a Texan all my life)

you shouldn't have bumped into a jersey shore cast member then

114- I wouldn't say America is more polite then the rest of the world, but there are worse countries.

How is this even an FML? It's not like your life is over because some woman didn't accept your apology...

I think South Park did it best. "**** You New Jersey!"

well we are talking about new jersey here..

DreadGravity 10

Yeah, was just about to say. 90% of people in Jersey don’t say a sentence without cursing and most of the time it’s as a compliment lol

Unless it was really phrased, "************! Watch your ******* step, ******* asshole," that is polite, especially for an airport in New Jersey.

^ This. It's even more true if the woman was an NJ native.

I'm sorry but any respect for new jersey I might of had, was killed by jersey shore...

hell no ? New York is the best ? but new jerseys not bad

Umm, it's all stereotypes. I'm from Jersey, no one ever acts like the shit you see on there.

148 New Jersey does not suck at all it's my home town I live it there but it all depends on where you are and who you meet

peithecelt 28

Not the rudest, we just don't pretend to like you. If someone in jersey asks how you are doing, it is because they give a shit and actually want to know. I'll take the curse laden honestly over false kindness any day.
