          The Rudeness Epidemic

          March 19, 2010

          From cell phones ringing in the movies to people texting during dinner to obnoxious drivers, society’s lack of civility is astounding. Dr. Phil shines a spotlight on rude people, and some are even sitting in his audience!
          Rude Awakening for the Audience
          Dr. Phil takes several audience members to task for being late. Don’t miss his reaction when someone’s cell phone rings in the studio! Plus, comedian Kate Rigg hits the streets to find out what happens when people’s buttons are pushed.

          Straightforward or Boorish?
          Robert says he made a waitress cry for mixing up his order, and he told a buddy’s new girlfriend that she wouldn’t be around for long. His stepdaughter, Melinda, says he doesn’t know when to stop joking around.

          Smart-Mouthed Sister 
          Anne says she’s tired of her sister, Kimberly, constantly interrupting others. Kimberly says she always has something important to say, and she doesn’t feel the need to change.

          It’s Your Turn, Dr. Phil!
          Dr. Phil fields questions from the audience. Has he ever thought about getting a toupee? What’s the sex of his daughter-in-law’s baby?
