Rudeness at Work Is Contagious

If you've had a boss or co-worker tell you to leave your attitude at the door, you can feel better knowing they were probably just trying to protect your innocent colleagues from catching your rudeness.

The research... defines rudeness as "something that goes under the radar for what is prohibited and that in some way violates the norm for mutual respect."
