    There are some cases that we feel we are not given due respect.

    I am very petite and look young for my age, so I feel disrespected quite often.  I admit that I get defensive sometimes when I feel others are treating me like a child.  To overcome this problem, I try to make myself look as professional as possible by wearing well-fitting, professional clothing and by being assertive when I need to be.

    When I was pregnant, I felt that my boss at work was discriminating against me because of it.  Before I got pregnant, I could do no wrong in his eyes, but as soon as I told him I was pregnant, he started finding problems with everything I did.  Eventually, he cut my hours down to 0 (without firing me), and told me that he didn't have enough work for me....but then he would hire someone else to do what I was doing.  Eventually, I told him off and left the job.  Then, I lodged a complaint with the Better Business Bureau and the Human Right Commission.

    I can identify with Collegecareer as I teach too.

    A few times it's been Men from (particular places in the world where women don't tell men what to do)

    I always overlook it, as I don't want them spoiling my teaching session, then later sit them down and explain that I am not there to dictate to them, but to support/help. They soon change attitude and before the end of the Course, we get on well.

    Another Lady, was disrespectful to me sometime ago (years back) and as usual I just held my cool and didn't even bother, cos I normally get on very well with students and it was obvious to all that she was in the wrong.

    Well, the next day she walked into class with a bunch of flowers and apologised.

    Just one of those things... There's always gonna be 1 or 2 people who will upset you at work. It happens.  smile

    Age has been the largest discriminator I've seen.  As a young engineer, my opinion was often passed over for that of a "greybeard", who had more experience than I did, even though my opinions may have been valid and indeed an improvement.

      I give everybody a fair shot but often I find younger people don't realize the difference between youthful enthusiasum and knowledge.

        Definitely true in many cases, but certainly not a universal truth.

    I guess I have never felt that way, because I have never thought of that question. Maybe I have never felt that I was important enough to feel especially respected.

    On the other hand, I don't pay a lot of attention to what other people think of me personally, as long as I respect myself.
