What's my age again?
So you know the term respect your elders? Well I know that phrase very well, and trust me when I say this, I think it is a bunch of horse shit!! They always say to learn, listen, and respect. Well at what age does the same same learn, listen and respect get returned. I am currently 21 years old will give my Co-Worker (in her 50's) advice on a subject, she will say "oh well I don't know" then aother Co-worker will say the same exact words that I just said or will ask her husband and he will say what I said and then the 50 year old will say oh what great advice! As I sit here and listen to the thank yous and the your so helpful speach to the other woman because well she's older then me, which apparently means she is wiser then I am. This is very frustrating and making me learn that respect is earned not given just becuase of how old you are and a good lesson I will remember when I am 50 and a young adult but an adult none the less gives me advice or has something of relavance to say.
