A friend of mine called me all upset after she got off work this morning. I couldn't blame her. She got accused of swiping a $300 cosmetics bag full of equally expensive war paint and crap off a luggage cart at a hotel where she does the night shift. She didn't do it; that woman would never steal anything. Later it was figured out on the video cameras who the actual thief was. Why the manager didn't go straight to the cameras is beyond me, but the guest apparently said it was my friend who did it, so the manager went with that first. So anyway, in my opinion, which is worth nothing of course, my friend's indignation is misplaced. She deserves an apology, which she won't get in a million years. She should be angry because she was falsely accused. But the reason she's having puppies and kittens is because she's forty years older than the guest who accused her and thirty years older than the manager who confronted her, and nobody in these younger generations respects their elders anymore, and what is this world coming to anyway!
So what gives? Now granted, when I was growing up, we all called adults Mr. or Mrs. So-and-So, and that seems to be fading in popularity. I still teach my daughter basic manners, and use them myself. But I generally try to respect everyone, no matter how young or old they are, till they prove to me by their words or actions that they prefer it otherwise. So what defines an elder? And what defines respect? In the above-mentioned case, I think, the manager was just doing her job, albeit in a backhanded way. And if the guest thought my friend had stolen her Coach cosmetics bag, respect would have had nothing to do with her reporting it.
