Tunnel Vision

So many people in our society have what I am going to refer to as 'tunnel vision' and it is really a sad thing to witness. By 'tunnel vision' I'm attempting to label the phenomenon whereby people are so caught up in their own lives and how busy they are that they are virtually incapable of seeing the world through another person's eyes in any meaningful way. Those afflicted with 'tunnel vision' no longer see what someone else might see and take that viewpoint into account when they act. There is no more golden rule. They bury themselves in their own assumptions and do what they have to in order to get by...all the while excusing their mistreatment of others or at the very least, their rude behavior with the idea of how many important things they have to accomplish.

Oh how I miss the days of treating others the way you wish to be treated was just plain common courtesy...
