I’m tempted to say that the title is wrong and that it should be “Why you shouldn’t have friends who have no manners”.
When my mother got married, she asked me to take a lot of photos during the reception. They had hired a photographer, but he wasn’t going to stay for the duration. I can’t remember either of us getting in each other’s way (well, maybe he’s cursing over the back of my head being in every shot?) but neither do I remember anyone ever getting in my way while I was snapping photos. It may have helped that my weapon of choice for most of the candids was a 20mm (on APS-C) lens. Need to stay close.
Anyway, when I’m taking photos at some sort of an event, and I’m not the event’s photographer, I try to show a bit of consideration for people around me. It may help, in my case, that I generally don’t shoot photos just to have a photo of something happening (unless asked to).
Also, unplugged wedding? Yeah, with Ms. Social Media and Mr. Raging Internet Addict that’s not going to happen.
Those results are from the new Pew report. Each column is interesting, for instance read down for “Most Compassionate.” It’s funny how many individuals do the same for themselves, I might add, in what has to be one of the simplest and most common of all intellectual mistakes.

That is so fascinating. Makes me wonder about the reasons (or is that “reasons”) and imagine a combination of old and new. Poles calling Germany least trustworthy probably doesn’t surprise anybody.
