U is for Uncouth #AtoZChallenge

For this year’s A to Z Challenge, I have chosen the theme of character flaws – something all characters need.

U is for Uncouth. This character lacks the most common of social graces. They may eat with their mouth open, laugh loudly, scratch themselves in public, or not respect other people’s privacy.

Uncouth characters can be offensive without realizing it. Others may see them as not just uncouth but unintelligent though the lack of social skills doesn’t have to correlate with their smarts.

Looking for an example? Here are two from the animated world – Barney from the TV show The Simpsons and Shrek from the Shrek movies. Neither thinks anything about belching in public and their personal hygiene is definitely lacking.
