And ya, life isn't fair 100% of the time, every time. Just go into a situation with the law assuming it is. Not with a premeditated chip on your shoulder.
I completely disagree. I'm not saying I'll judge somebody right away, but I'm not obligated to respect anybody if i dont feel they deserve it. Of course I wont be a dick either. Respect is a silent trait that you can personally hold someone accountable for. I know you're wanting to play the age card and you'll tell me to respect my elders, but you have to earn it. Uniform doesn't mean anything. I wear a uniform at work but I don't automatically expect everyone to treat me with respect. Especially if I am being a dick to said person.
