I Am Amazed at the Overt Rudness of Many Bulgarians

After recently moving to Bulgaria, I am amazed at the overt rudness of many Bulgarians. For example, while awaiting shopping carts at the Metro, several women waited near the entrance for cart arrival. A few carts arrived and out of nowhere, a man grabs the cart from me! He didn't think twice about the act. Luckily, for me, a Bulgarian woman sees this and says something to the man and pulls the cart away from him and indicates to me that I should take the cart. Where is common courtesy? What kind of man pushes a woman away and siezes an item? While Bulgaria is awaiting admission into the EU, should they not also at least try to make an effort to act civilized?

Secondly, is it so difficult for people to put their garbage into the dumpsters? It's amazing to see the amount of litter tossed about. Where is the pride of people? People DO have a choice between right and wrong and the ability to take care of their environment... at least not contributing to the unsightfulness.

Sure, Bulgaria has had a turbulent past, but Bulgarians have prevailed as survivors. At the threshold of EU entry, shouldn't we ALL contribute to the peoples' and country's best interest?

Thank you for your time,
Deborah Powers
