China White Tea: Never really understood the age-entitles-one-to-respect thing. Good job, you managed to be born in a certain year and, thus far, haven't died. Good job on that, but it's not really an accomplishment worthy of respect in and of itself.


This seems to be a popular sentiment. Perhaps my idea of what respect entails is different from yours, but it seems to me that respect for others should be the default, right up until someone proves themselves unworthy of that respect.

We don't live in small tribal communities anymore. The number of people you are likely to interact with on a daily basis is fairly large. The number of people you know well enough to have developed an earned respect for will be considerably smaller. Your "no respect until it's earned" policy would mean that very few people respect those they're interacting with in any given situation.

Perhaps this doesn't make you an asshole inherently, but it makes a damn good rationalization for acting like one.

/I'm not actually calling you an asshole, merely pointing out how this particular philosophy may be detrimental to society at large
//I'm sure you're a wonderful person who lives by the golden rule of "Treat others as you wish to be treated"

Vegan Meat Popsicle: Being older often implies being wiser, at least in a general sense, all other things being equal.


I don't think it's possible to qualify that sentence any more.

Being older often (but sometimes doesn't) implies (but doesn't require) being wiser, at least in a general sense (but not in any specific case), all other things being equal (but they never are).

And wise people don't start altercations with people over parking at McDonalds.

Considering your child-like attitude, I'd be willing to bet the things you don't understand could fill a library. Being older often implies being wiser, at least in a general sense, all other things being equal. Smart people understand that it makes sense, then, to offer some level of respect to people who have had the opportunity of more experience on the off-chance they may have something useful and valuable to teach you.

But you keep douching it up and see how well that benefits you.

You should respect everyone until they show that they don't deserve it.

Anyone who demands respect does not deserve it.

OrygunFarker: JesseL: OrygunFarker: It was on 185th, between Five Guys, and Ace Hardware, in Aloha, Oregon. I could care less if you believe it or not. It's still real to THAT guy.

I could actually care less, but I'm unwilling to.


You keep telling yourself that that thin rationalization really explains your poor grasp of language, grammar, and basic logic. I'm sure that you'll at least convince yourself.

It has to be qualified, otherwise it's not inherently true. There are lots of stupid old people with terrible ideas and horrible personalities that should be locked away from society in a cold, dark room until they die alone and unloved. Rupert Murdoch banks on it.

The point is that there's opportunity there and you should be respectful by default in case there's some knowledge to be taken advantage of. Smart people wait until old people prove their idiots to be disrespectful to them.

It should be legal in all 50 states to kick shiathead teenagers asses.

Farking kids think that there are no consequences to their actions.

You go, cranky old man!

Just threatening shiathead teenagers never works.

You have to follow through.

I'm not saying he's right or wrong in this scenario, but I think a lot of people would be a lot less douche-tastic in this world if a swift ass-kicking was a real possibility.

/ still, you want a passive-aggressive shiathead? Fine. I'll park you in and go get my food, farker.

Have to agree. But that kid really knew how to push it to the limit without getting his hands dirty.

You should respond to parking disputes like adults and slash their tires when they're not looking.
