Everyone deserves my respect? No. They earn respect. If I start handing it out like it's nothing, it becomes nothing.

I think the point is to not disrespect someone based on first impressions. When you first meet someone, show respect as a fellow human being, and if they turn out to be a dick, then they have lost your respect.

Yes, because your respect is obviously such a sought after commodity, I can see why everyone would want some of your oh so valuable respect.

So when you're walking down the street, you don't respect any person passing by you? It's either that or you've been influence too much by movies.

He's talking to the kind of respect you give by shaking someone's hand when introducing and not assuming he's less worthy than you.

Well, yes but they should all start off with it. If you don't give them your respect first, your're just a dick.

Respect is first given and then lost, trust is earned. At least in my book. If you go around disrespecting all the people you meet those around you will lose respect for you.

respecting someone and disrespecting them are two different things, just because i don't respect every single person i meet instantly doesn't mean i disrespect everyone all the time there is a neutral zone for people I don't know in which i respect or disrespect them based on their actions if they act respectably then they have earned my respect but if the act like an asshole then i'm not going to respect them.

Well that "neutral zone" as you called it would be a very fine line as I'm trying to imagine it, but I suppose you are right. Here's a scenario for you. Person (old or young, man or women, no sexual desire involved) is walking up to store entrance. You open said door and allow them to enter. Perfect stranger who you just respected, they didn't earn it but they received it because you are a "respectable person" . Now they turn around and do something rude, they then lost your respect. This is my thinking. And when you said "act like an asshole' they, for me at least, lost my respect there.
My question for you is, what would you call that zone between respect and disrespect, if its not one or the other?

anon answered for me, acting respectfully doesn't mean i respect the specific person but that i act a certain way towards all people who i don't disrespect, i could see how some peoples concept of respect would include such an interaction but for me respect is something much stronger and much more valuable.

common courtesy and respect are different things.

I think his point is that you shouldn't disrespect someone because they're a waiter or something. People are people. Being nasty to someone below you just for that reason makes you a jerk

It's respect as in respecting somebody. Disrespecting someone based on prejudice of age, nationality, social class etc. makes you a jerk.
