    Describing bad behavior

    How would we describe people who do something bad and show disregard of the others? And how do we describe that behavior? For instance taking pictures at an exhibition or talking loudly during a music concert? Thank you!

    "Ignorant" is used in this fashion in my dialect. People that do rude, uncultured things (who should, but do not know any better).

    James,

    1. What is the wrong side of a sidewalk?
    2. What is wrong with sitting in the seat one prefers?
