There have been a few times in my life when a supervisor or other person has stated that "I need to be treated with respect", as if they honestly think that by saying so, they'll get it.
And never in my life have I understood how on EARTH someone can think that respect is just given upon demand.
I can pretend to respect you. I can act like you're just the bee's knees.
But at the end of the day, respect is never given just because you say you have to have it.
It can be earned, and lost in an instant.
And today, someone lost my respect, and they'll probably never get it back.
