IMHO, it is the "It's all about me" folks. They lack the slightest consideration of their action's effect on others; from the slow driver in the passing lane to the guy passing a boat on the ICW
on plane. I once overheard on the VHF
(back when I actually used to monitor
it) a fellow in a small Jonboat politely ask a large cruiser to slow down while passing as he had children
aboard.... the cruiser replied "Get a bigger boat!"
I don't know if it is a "ME" generation thing or what, but it surely IS sad!
