I also would love to know what happened to more sensible, polite sounding greetings like "how are you", "how is life treating you today", "good morning",
"good evening", "hello" or a simple hi. This new way of greeting people in public with the "wassup" or the even worse"sup" is totally idiotic. It makes many younger Americans look like ignorant, unrefined, lowlife bums. I blame it all on that glorified poison from the entertainment media known as "hip-hop". I would like to see the hip hop and the gangbanging that goes along with it become a thing of the past. Also the way many urban and suburban male teens and twenty somethings dress today, they look like they crawled out of a trash can with those hideous saggy baggy oversized clothes. The worst thing is when they wear a baseball hat on their head backwards or sideways. That just gives any sound minded person the impression that many of these youths are careless slobs that don't give a shit about anyone or anything. It is high time to permanently eradicate hip-hop and gangbanging and all the hideous, saggy baggy style of dress that several younger Americans are addicted to unfortunately.
