‘Always pay attention to how someone treats service industry workers, animals, and young children,’ one person wrote, while another added that ‘how they treat people from whom they have nothing to gain’ is another sign.
‘They don’t say thank you to food servers…someone brings you food, you say thanks. It ain’t hard,’ someone else commented.
There were also plenty of Reddit users who are appalled by people who are entitled and refuse to clean up after themselves because they think it’s someone else’s job.
‘Who are the guys who spit out their chewing gum into urinals?’ one person asked. ‘I see this all the time at work, and I work in a high-end corporate place. Do they think it dissolves and goes down the pipe? The janitor has to pick that out.’

Another said that if people ‘make messes in public areas and wander off,’ they weren’t raised right.
Someone else added to that by calling out those who ‘don’t put their shopping cart in the proper place when they’re done with it.’
One popular response was a ‘lack of personal accountability,’ namely those who ‘can never admit wrongdoing on their part’ and claim ‘it’s always someone else’s fault.’
‘My dad used to come home and at dinner it was always ‘this person did that stupid thing at work’, but never something that he did wrong. Now my first instinct is to always look at someone else first,’ one person admitted.
‘It’s not as severe as what you describe, as I do blame myself, but only after looking at others first. It’s a very difficult thing to overcome, you know you’re a d******d but it lies very deep.’
