    Respect should be earned, not handed out like sweets. I'm not going to just respect someone for reasons based solely around the prehistoric date in which something momentous happened to them, and their resulting age as a result of this.
    Respect should be lost not earned. And old people had a lot of respect in their time, she's gone through a lot of stuff most likely, I mean 7 years? She was a member during the recession what a veteran.
    True dat.



    Though I still disagree with the sentiment behind john2054's post, though it sounds to be said partially in jest.

    Well, I disagree.
    So you'd be rude to a stranger instead of only being rude to them once they deserve your ire?

    Respect doesn't necessarily mean doing things for people, sucking up to them, but just taking their feelings into consideration.

    I have a certain level of respect for everyone, as per my own friendly nature. What I meant was (as you mentioned), I wouldn't go the extra mile in terms of my respect for them. No special treatment, to put it another way.

    Sit yourselves down, kids.

    Now, back in my day, we used to live in a windmill. Imagine that! Me and my nine brothers and sisters - your uncles and aunties, as you know them - all cramped into a tiny, disused little outhouse-esque period building on the brink of caving in completely, and crushing and suffocating us to death! I was forced to sleep in an empty, oversized flour sack every night - imagine it! The stench of stale, mouldy flour filling mine and your aunties' and uncles' nostrils every single night before eventually drifting off to sleep...

    You kids think you have it tough in this day and age? Pah! You don't know the half of it...
