I'm Trying

I really try and be polite and compassionate with strangers but it's really hard when I'm treated with disrespect literally everywhere I go in this city.

Some men in this city are very aggressive and rude. One can just walk down the street and mind your own business, and there will be guys yelling and behaving in very inappropriate ways. Where does all this unprovoked anger come from?

Be the change

I was nice to someone today on the Skytrain, so I was asked if I was from out of town LOL. Not born in Vancouver. Prairie Girl. Too funny.

Vancouver is getting worse

I remember the cool, friendly, easy-going city I moved to in the early 80's.
Yes, I know it's a few decades ago but it's really sad how unfriendly, pretentious and frankly, depressing, this beautiful city has become.
I retire in a few years and it's off to the Island.

It's getting to the point

It's getting to the point where I think those people who you see with their eyes glued to their cell phones are really the smart ones. No human interaction required, just texting, gaming, and listening to music. People have become so rude and disrespectful that it's pointless having any kind of contact with most people.

I feel you

I know what you mean. After a long time dealing with negative Vancouver people (yes, most are!), I stopped being polite, courteous, and compassionate towards others. I became like everyone else.

I work and spend much time downtown. Live in Kits,walk around all the time and see none of this. Maybe you should stop hanging out at the DTES with the drug addicts.
Anyways what is up with you people? I never get this. No one is ever rude to me. But then again,I walk around with an amused look and smile on,and people respond in kind.

Sound like you are all those people who walk around looking like someone just crapped on your shoes....

OP didn’t say it was all about men, but thanks for jumping to that conclusion so the rest of us don’t have to

To be so nice and evolve to the new normal- when in hell do as the helvetians do: take the money plug your nose look the other way and keep going...
