I must say, I am happy I do not live around some of you folks. Respect and manners should be the first option, yet I see that is not true with many posters. If I met you IRL, I would offer you respect and treat you with good manners... whether I receive the same is up to you.
Oh please, nobody has treated you with disrespect in this thread
, let alone real life.
I certainly haven't argued that it is acceptable to treat anybody disrespectfully. In fact it seems the only person in this exchange who has argued that it is acceptable for there to be disparity in the level of respect you automatically accord others, is you. I treat everybody I meet with the same level of politeness, regardless of their age.
