• Sometimes people use ”respect" to
mean "treating someone like a person"
and sometimes they use ”respect" to
mean "treating someone like an
authority"
and sometimes people who are used
to being treated like an authority say
"if you won't respect me I won't
respect you" and they mean "if you
won't treat me like an authority I won't
treat you like a person"
and they think they're being fair but
they aren't, and it's not okay.

    • No that's common respect. If you treat me like shit, don't expect me to kiss your ass. Had a huge falling out with my mother over that because my half brother treated me horribly and gave me death threats and my mom expected me to respect him just because he was older. Fuck you and fuck him too.

If someone gets an attitude when I dont address them as sir or ma'am that in its self is disrespectful.
