Let’s talk about respect for a minute. . .
The sign you see in the pic here is the one on my office door. I usually keep my door open unless I’m on a call with a client or something.
Which means, my door is only closed for a few hours per day, at most.
So here’s the scenario that played out about an hour ago. . .
My 20 year old son comes down the hall, sees the door closed and knocks. Then waits. I don’t answer.
He waits for a few minutes, knocks again and again, waits. I open the door, talk to him and then close the door again.
10 minutes later, my ex-husband, who’s been staying with us since his parents passed late last year, comes upstairs. . .
AND BARGES RIGHT IN!
Doesn’t knock. Doesn’t stop. Doesn’t ask. Just opens the door and comes in.
There was no emergency. There was nothing urgent. He just wanted to know where the mop was.
And he has the audacity to complain to me that my children (3 of whom are over the age of 18) are disrespectful.
Who do you think is the disrespectful one???
