"Anderson" and Yahoo Shine teamed up to ask our online audiences the rudest behavior they continually encounter. Yahoo Shine Facebook friends were quick to respond with passionate rude rants.
Shannon P. said on Facebook, "Being MOWED down at clothing rack by a rude/entitled shopper who has abs NO concept of personal space!" Amanda S. posted, "When you're in line at the store and the person is so close to you that you can feel him breathin on your neck!!"
While responses varied, one of the top rants was rude cell phone behavior.
In a poll asking, "What rude behavior bothers you most?" 56% of respondents said parents who do not supervise their children are most annoying. Ten percent said rude waiters, 8% said pet owners who do not clean up after their dogs and 7% said tardiness.
One of the top rude behaviors came in at 19% -- people who talk too loudly on their cell phones.

Paul Brown, star of Discovery Channel's "Auction Kings," appeared on today's "Anderson." Paul is an expert on finding hidden treasures in unexpected places. Paul and his intrepid Gallery 63 crew in Atlanta have a knack for finding rare treasures and off-the-wall objects.
Do you frequent flea markets? In the below list, Paul shares his favorite spots across the USA for scoring flea market finds.
Paul says, "I'm a big fan of neighborhood flea markets and garage sales. You get to meet your neighbors, and you never know what you're going to find. If you live in a city that's home to a well-known company, estate sales and neighborhood flea markets are a great way to find some collectibles that remind you of an earlier time in your life. I live in Atlanta, and it's always great fun to come across a vintage Coca-Cola promotional item at a neighborhood sale."
If you're interested in attending one of the larger and more organized shows, I'll first mention Scott Antique Market,

Auction Expert and star of Discovery Channel's "Auction Kings" is the go-to guy when it comes to delving into the world of unique items -- and revealing hidden treasure.
Paul is sharing his secrets with the AndersonCooper.com community. Check out his list of the best items to look out for when shopping fleas...
List Tool Name: Top 5 Items to Look Out for at Flea Markets
1. Precious Metals
Precious metals are a great buy, especially in a down economy. Sterling silver items (look for "925" or "sterling" marks,) are great purchases. Objects made of gold (14k) and gold jewelry are very collectible as well, since gold is worth more than $1,600 an ounce. These metals are liquid, so you can enjoy your gold jewelry and your silver tea sets, but at the end of the day you can melt them down for cash.
2. Old Books
Look on the 25 cent table for first edition old books. Check the copyright page at the beginning of the book; if the copyright has a single year listed, you're well on your way.

Auction expert and star of Discovery Channel's "Auction Kings" is the go-to guy when it comes to delving into the world of unique items -- and revealing hidden treasures. As our special guest blogger, Paul is sharing his secrets on how to shop smart at flea market and estate sales...
Paul says, "It's a big country and there's a lot of stuff in it. We all have stuff, and it doesn't matter where you live. If you're young or old, rich or poor, no matter your background, we all have stuff. Here are a few tips for your next trip to a flea market or estate sale."
1. Create a Budget
When you decide to go on your flea market adventure, set a budget. Take 20, 60 or even 100 hundred dollars with you in small bills. And leave your debit and credit cards at home.
2. Have a List
It helps to have a list of objects you're looking for. This doesn't mean you can't buy that cool, unexpected object, but it will stop you from buying a set of dishes similar to a set you already have gathering dust in

Do you pick up a penny when you spot one on the sidewalk? Are you a lucky person?
Backstage at the show, Lynn Robinson, author of "Trust Your Gut," shares her top three tips for improving your luck:
1. Pay Attention
Start paying attention to what you tell yourself. Lucky people often tell themselves they're lucky and it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. It's even a good idea to keep an intuition or luck log.
2. Be Aware of Your Surroundings
Start being aware of your surroundings. Talk to people. Go outside of your comfort zone. The people who are luckiest are the people who do things that scare themselves every day.
3. Trust Your Gut
The people who are most lucky are the ones who trust their quiet, inner voice.
