Yes~ Treating people with respect makes your world a nicer place to live in!

I try to show respect for everyone, unless they are just irritating, then I will treat them as if a child and or ignore them.

I initially respect no one... They have to earn it

Yaah, i respect them...Why not, my parents and Elders are suppoused to be Respected >:3

Yes I listen to them, but I never really got educational value from my parents. I was actually more intelligent than them growing up lol, they came to me and asked me questions about Math/Science which was just wrong but meh they taught me the value of discipline and to treat people as I'd like to be treated. My Dad speaks his mind and tells the truth no matter how hurtful, so I think I follow him in that sense. Say it like it is, tell a white lie if you have it in your heart, otherwise....be bold and blunt.

I try to respect my parents, but unfortunatly my dad is a jerk, so it can be hard >_>
With elders? If they are senile annoying geezers, at some point I really want to smack them (but I don't btw)
I never say or do anything, so I guess it dosen't matter? o.o

Very much so. I keep thinking my mama would smack me upside the head if I was dissing an elderly person. Well, ANYONE. And my mama didn;t smack lightly, either!

I think that "elders" shouldn't include people who are living concurrently and working beside us. It should be those who have gone before us...even the ones who are no longer living. So people who are just 10/20/30 years older, living paycheck-to-paycheck and trying to survive...I'm not going to let them play the "I was born first" card. But if possible, we should remember the people who first paved our roads, or laid the foundations of our schools, etc etc...basically learn be grateful.

I have a general respect for most people for being alive. My parents and other older family members have a good deal of respect from me. Now random elders out there are more questionable and it varies heavily from one person to another. For example, I have next to know respect for teachers because I see them as false authority figures with overinflated egos. On the other hand, A police officer/firefighter/soldier/fisherman/construction worker/farmer/etc gets more respect from me because they are actually doing a real job from my point of view.

SO I guess it's dependent on who your asking that I have respect for.

I believe in showing all people respect. How they respond to it is up to them.
Posted 6/15/11
I guess I show people respect in my own way. Hearing them out and being very blunt and straightforward. Taking what they say in consideration. I think everyone has their own view of what respect is. Kids are the funniest. You gotta love the honesty they got...a lot of older people are racist and tend to be very ignorant but not all of them.

Elders? yes. But my only living parent? yes and no. We treat each other like neighbors, too much bad blood and we're both getting too old for the drama.
