“You should show me respect because I’m older than you” is being holier than thou, and not necessarily true, amirite?
Just because you were born before me, or lived decades before me doesn’t mean I’m required to agree with everything you say. I will respect you if you show me respect first, and not just because you’re my elder. Stop saying you know better than me because you’re older. There are young people out there who are just as wise, if not wiser.
