The way individuals treat one another is just absurd sometimes. An individual should always live by the “Golden Rule”. Not becuase they believe in it so much, but more becuase we all want to be treated with respect and it just makes sense. If “you” (general population – nothing personal directed towards anyone personally), as an indivudal want to be treated with respect (personally, professionally, or in common life situations with strangers) than you must treat others the way you’d like to be treated. Though we never quite know what another individual is going through and sometimes these life situations can take their toll and affect attitudes… If one take a second to look onesself in the mirror when communicating, would one like themself??? Hhhmmm… I don’t think so. Respect is something you give unless otherwise broken, trust is something you earn. Sorry, had to RANT!
