But, as with most writers, I suffer from an unusual condition called YOUHEARD-ONETHING-BUT-I-HEARDSOMETHINGELSE-ITIS (Something that a normal person hears, translates into something totally different for me.) So when I heard this statement I thought to myself, "Now that is exactly what is wrong with the world today---this damn sense of entitlement. No one thinks that they need to earn respect anymore."
Of course, I believe in human rights, but humor me for a minute will you? Men, women, children,,,, everyone thinks that they should just automatically be respected in life. Well, I thought that respect was earned??? Call me old-school, but I think a man should earn respect from his children, and vice-versa.
But instead, society is so scared of being politically incorrect and making sure to not hurt anyone else's feelings that we are creating a generation of pure narcissistic fluff. Yea, I said it---a world full of fluffy self-absorbed, entitlement-fed, arrogant, self-proclaimed mini-gods...... Wow Marsha, all of that from just one little statement in a dorky HR video? But then again, I don't have to earn respect..... do I?
