One thing I pride myself on is my ability to deal with people on any level, and not treat them with any less respect than any other person.
Every 30, 60, 90 year old has spent 30, 60, 90 years doing *something*! So what if it isn't the same 30, 60, 90 years that you spent? Why must people be so intolerant.
Why is that say a bricklayer is treated with any less respect than a rocket scientist. I bet the rocket scientist can't build walls. Everyone has a place in the world, and without that person there the world is worse off in pretty much all cases.
