She says to him: you are rude and uncouth and presumptuous. Uncouth
means pretty much the same thing as rude
It says here, in the concise Oxford dictionary: lacking good manners, refinement or grace. presumptuous
adj. too confident, in a way that shows a lack of respect for other people
The example here is: Would it be presumptuous of me to ask to borrow your car?
And I found an example online. This
is from the Wall Street Journal and they’re talking about the United States presidential election. And this is from back before Barack Obama got the nomination and somebody’s saying that he wouldn’t declare victory yet because he was: concerned about appearing presumptuous or antagonistic towards Hillary Clinton.
Kia Ora, this is Stick News. Travellers from the 27 countries whose citizens don’t need visas to enter the United States, will soon be required to register online at least three days before arriving in the country. The United States Department of Homeland Security is a Cabinet department of the U.S. federal government with the responsibility of protecting the U.S. from terrorist attacks and responding to natural disasters.
Homeland Security has announced that all visitors who are allowed to enter the country without visas will have to register their details online at least three days before they travel.
A spokesperson they will help the United States boost the security of its visa-free travel program by allowing the government to screen visitors before they travel.
And that was Stick News for Tuesday 3rd of June.

Today’s word is annoying.
In Titanic, Rose says to Jack: You are so annoying.
Annoying is a pretty common word.
Many things can be annoying:
noises conversations with sarah
I did a search for “annoying” and I found a site called Annoying Coworker
On the site people write messages to their annoying coworkers telling them how annoying they are.
I’ll read you one: Ok, so you've graduated from singing like a hyena to tapping your fingers & feet. All your habits are annoying & distracting. You are LOUD and obnoxious. No wonder you don't get any work done; you can't stay still for even a minute. Many of us have told you many times to keep it down, but you still don't. How inconsiderate are you? You're not a kid anymore buddy. While I'm at it, STOP WHISTLING too!
Do you love him?
Do you love him?
Do you love him?
You’re being very rude. You shouldn’t be asking me this.
Well it’s a simple question. Do you love the guy or not?
This is not a suitable conversation.
Why can’t you just answer the question?
This is absurd. You don’t know me and I don’t know you and we are not having this conversation at all. You are rude and uncouth and presumptuous.
And I am leaving now. Jack, Mr Dawson, it’s been a pleasure. I sought you out to thank you and now I have thanked you.
これは道理に反しています。 あなたは私を知らないし私はあなたを知らないので、このような会話はしません。 あなたは無礼で野暮で無遠慮です。
さて私は行きます。 ジャック、ミスター・ドーソン、楽しかったわ。 お目にかかれて光栄で感謝しています。
And you’ve insulted me.
Well you deserved it.
I thought you were leaving.
I am. You are so annoying. Wait, I don’t have to leave. This is my part of the ship. You leave.
行きますとも。 あなたには本当にイライラさせられます。 そうだ、私が行かなくてもいいんだわ。 ここは私の場所だから、あなたが行きなさい。
Oh, well, well, well, now who’s being rude?
