This seems like an epidemic, with one act of rudeness inspiring another and ultimately creating a spiral of rudeness.
Imagine this scenario: Someone is annoyed by a rude driver who cuts them up on their way to work. That person walks into the office to be greeted cheerily by a colleague, but can only complain about the rude driver.
In turn, the co-worker takes this as a personal slight and

And so the cycle of rudeness marches ever onward, thanks to the action of that inconsiderate driver."

7 Root Causes Of Rudeness:

1. low self-esteem
2. personal problems
3. learned behavior
4. personality disorders
5. cultural differences
6. 'brain strain' caused by technology overload
7. emotional immaturity and low emotional intelligence

"Let’s face it: the human condition has never been a utopia where everyone is unfailingly kind, thoughtful, and respectful."

"Even the Greek philosophers complained of the problem two thousand or so years ago – Plato famously ranted about the ill-mannered and disrespectful behavior of youths."
