Unrefined

It's frustrating that with the advancement in technology as the age progressed, the world is still filled with many unrefined people...

And I'm saying unrefined. Not uneducated or uncivilised, but unrefined... And trust me, most of the unrefined people are people with a sound education, perhaps a high paying job, and come from first world countries...

Take a flight landing for example. We all know that we are supposed to remain seated with seatbelts fastened and electronic devices switched off until the plane comes to a standstill and the door opens. But in reality, as soon as the plane touched down, even when it is still struggling hard to brake and slow down, you can already hear seat belts being unbuckled and mobile phones being turned on. People, shirt and tie wearing people start to struggle to get up and open the luggage hatch to get their bags...

Take a road accident as another example. You see 2 cars on the road, obviously collided some time before you passing by. You see some cars stopped by the side and people surrounding the scene. Only a few of them are offering actual help. Most of them are with their phones and camera snapping pictures... And then you see the cars in front of you getting wobbly a bit, you overtake them, you see them paying half attention to driving and using another half attention trying to snap pictures from inside their cars...

So.. I say, sometimes, when bad things happen to people, it could be that they were doing something stupid and caused accidents. Most of the time these same people would then jump out and accuse the roads, the system, the government, etc, of not providing fool proof and safe things for them...

A lot of mishaps and accidents can be avoided if everyone behave properly when doing things...
