Seemingly not a day goes by that I don't encounter utter, blatant disrespect. For example, what goes through the mind of some pig who thinks it's okay to have a sudden verbal outburst in a restaurant and openly criticise another patron who happens to be walking past, for all to hear? I think a lot of us are too polite to actually do anything about it. I have glared at people. Sometimes I've coupled glaring with stopping dead in my tracks. I've confronted people, only for them to play dumb and act as though they don't know what I'm talking about, making me look mad.

Yes, they're just sad little people with nothing better to do than bring other people down. It's the random mutterers that get me. I mean, they don't know the person they're insulting at all. A case of judging a book by its cover, perhaps.
Ibru, very cute - I feel terrible (sort of) because I just hung up on a person from the property management of our Home Owners Assoc. I asked about the landscaping project. "I don't know what you're talking about" she said like I was an idiot. UGH!
Anti, that's why they are so nice to laugh at. Can't they think outside the box? Billie, I'm sorry you have to deal with the Home Owners Assoc. Always frustrating and difficult...
I think the problem is that especially the younger generations go around saying that respect has to be earned -- that it isn't given. Fair enough, but that does not give one the right to go around disrespecting people.
From experience I know the schools teach the opposite. "Every one needs to be respected." This causes disruption in a home setting because this notion of respect requires that everyone be equal. And if a dad is equal to a son we begin to have problem
