    How would you describe this?

    Hi,

    Say there is a person who talks loud, litters up, jumps lines, or spits on the ground in a public area. How would youn describe him?
    Can I say he is uneducated? uncivilized? What kind of adjectives would you use?

    Thank you!

    I'd call this person either "impolite" or "rude".

    Also 'uncouth', 'yobbish' or 'loutish'.

    Note: 'uneducated' is wrong, LeTyan: many uneducated people don't behave like that and many well-educated people do.

    I kind of like "uncivilized" for that purpose, though.
