"It's not my world; it's not your world. It's our world."
Steve, you opened a can of worms with this one today. Admittedly, I'm a 'grumpy old man', turning 78 next month, but here's my take on the disrespectful thing.
Disrespectful? Get over it. In my experience, disrespect is far more often perceived than intended.
Reminds me of the old cartoon that bears the captions:
Father: "What do you say when you want something?"
Son: "I'm offended"
In my day, nobody owed me respect. I had to earn it. If you want my respect, look in the mirror first. Granted there are some basic rules regarding this, but generally we spend far to much time on what we have a 'right' to and too little on what we have a responsibility for.
You may not be able to control every situation in life, but you can control how you respond.
One of the best days of my IT career was they day I told my boss if the problem was so simple he should go fix it himself.
