Shouldnt respect be earned?

Ive been told im supposed to respect this woman that cant take a joke, is rude to me, and basically thinks im a nasty sorry excuse for a human for spitting in a garbage can.

Im sorry, but im not going to basically suffer from Bronchitis (Asthma + Congestion is very bad) for Politeness.

Sometimes i joke around, but im really a nice person and i wait until i have seen somebodies actions and behaviours before i start to judge them and decide if they EARNED MY RESPECT or not.

Im not going to automatically give somebody respect based on age, experience, or any other reason besides having earned my respect.

And i definitely will not be giving any respect to people that think they can talk to me and treat me any way they want and still think i should respect them.

I think if you go around being rude to people and telling them they haven't earned your respect you're gonna have a bad time.

Also if you're friends with this woman you should recognize what jokes she's comfortable with and what she's not.

Also if someone insults you for spitting into a garbage can, look them straight in the eye and say, in the most serious tone you can, "I have Bronchitis, swallowing my spit is like swallowing fire ants." Doesn't matter if that's true, but she'll feel bad for pointing it out.

Dunno I just think politeness should be the default, people shouldn't have to earn the right to be treated decently.

I dont tell people if they hve earned my respect or not; i just act nicer towards people that have been nice or even respectful towards me.

If they have been rude or disrespectful ; of course i will be rude or disrespectful back.

And she is far from my friend; i hate that woman and would rather bot have to be in the same room as her and her crazy friend.

I get that most people say that respect is supposed to be earned, but I tend to be respectful to a lot of the people around me and whether or not they act respectfully to me back barely concerns me.

I find myself happier that way. Distance yourself from those who don't like/respect you, and even if you have to put up with them, keep treating em the way you would like to be treated. From my experience doing so will eventually change their attitude about you.

I'm with you on this one. Respect is earned. Being a moron and talking down to you when she doesn't know the situation is nonsense. Just continue to be rude to her, you can't please everyone.

The Golden Rule (to do unto others as you would have them do unto you) is a popular adage that is upheld across many cultures and continents, and is so for a reason, especially in the case of that lady and you.

Respect isn't earned, it's a birthright.

That's why you move to an asian country where discipline is everywhere. Respect is given not earned in this region.
