Disrespect is something that is not tolerated by anyone, especially by people with authority. Disrespect can be shown in many ways and anyone is capable of showing it. Sometimes being disrespectful was not the person intention and may be using a form of disrespect without even being aware that they are. Unfortunately most of the time this not the case. For an example I will use my own personal experiences. For the past three summers I have visited my aunts and uncle in Maryland. And for the past three summers every time they would be upset with me it was basically for the same reason. That reason being my attitude and behavior towards my superiors. Now not only do I upset them I usually get some type of punishment in return which I've earned. Any trouble I got into because of my attitude could have easily been avoided. Sometimes I may not even have an attitude but from my body language it seems like I do. Not only my body language but my facial expressions also. For as long as I can remember the people in my life say I have a bad attitude and I didn't really care. I honestly didn't really think it was a big deal and that they were just trying to irritate me. For example my Uncle Desmond and I had an incident which was very unnecessary on my part. It was so stupid that I only remember little details of what happened. But what I do remember is something that will stick with me for the rest of the summer. I had just left the basketball camp I was attending for the week, and was walking to the car with Uncle Desmond when he told me we were waiting on one of Aunt Rochelle's friends. We were waiting on her to pick up her daughter. Not really paying attention I automatically assumed that I met the girl before , but that doesn't excuse the fact of me not speaking to her. Anyway I spoke to Aunt Rochelle and kept listening to my music....
