All of these things you mention are nothing more than considerate and proper behaviour that Mommy and Daddy should have taught their children.
If a child doesn't do it, (e.g. toddler, child, adolescent) blame the parent. If an adult doesn't do it, don't blame the parent, you're an adult now. Take responsibility for your own actions or inactions. You should now know better, regardless of how your parents failed you.
I worked retail for 14 years before finally getting out (Hallelujah!) I've been a member of about 4 different gyms over the last 18 years and it is truly amazing at the level of inconsideration and ineptitude that is so prevalent not just in the gym but society as a whole.
I wish your article could be circulated to more than just we SP'ers and, more appropriately, to the actual people who _should_ be reading it.
