Respect

Rate this Entry
Last Thursday I came full circle for the first time I can recall....and it was a really nice surprise I have to say.

Going back to when I was 21 and even before that...I was always respectful to older guys and genuinely saw them as mentors and examples and I valued their experience and friendship. I always hoped they knew it...or felt it. I still show respect instantly for older people than myself to this day. I don't have to try...it comes naturally.

So....I usually go to the gym around 11 PM or 6 AM and between 5-7 AM it is crowded with people mostly my age around in that radius...and at night there are usually people in the 30s-40s...and I have been going now for so long I didn't think anything else existed until last Thursday when I decided to go at 5 PM...

...and I was amidst a large crowd of 18-30 year olds and at first I felt awkward because it was a different environment and I also flirted with the idea of being out of place and coming back later bit I thought...nah...I am here and I will do what I came to do...

...and about a 1/2 hour into it I realized that most everyone I encountered was extraordinarily nice to me...and kind...and decent. I first thought maybe something was wrong and they felt sorry for me so I checked to make sure I didn't have any toilet paper stuck to my ass or snot running out of my nose (I didn't)...and it finally hit me...they are being respectful to me because I am the "old guy" .....

I never really think of myself as the "old guy" so I wasn't sure how to react and a lot of things raced through my head but it was a quick trip down paranoia boulevard and I decided that it was nice that they were respectful...and I liked it.

...and then I thought about how the older guys I knew might have felt...and I hope it was as nice for them as it was for me.

Getting older has a lot of challenges...but there are also a few surprises along the way. I am glad I experienced another one of them....

Just something I wanted to share....

    Not surprised by this at all. You seem like the type to give the world what you expect back.

    Glad to hear! I also try to live this way--and I hope YOU have seen it, even in my comments to you.

    I have yet to experience this. Perhaps I should get out more and interact with people to be able to assess if they treat me in a different way now I am older.

    Absolutely...I have noticed. I have to say though...I wasn't really expecting the "old guy" thing. I kind of forget I am old most of the time

    This is the first time I was a ever really aware of it happening due to my age. I am not usually in the company of so many 18-30 year olds though.

    Knowing you only by your posts on this forum, I'm not surprised. People young and old can pick up on vibes from people who are positive and comfortable in their nature and it will show. I'm glad you had a positive experience with this younger crowd.

    I have experienced this quite frequently in my career. I have sometimes been in a crew of 8 on my trips and have had to spend 4 days with 20 and 30 somethings. I have to remind myself that I am 3 decades older than they are. I go out with them on layovers and am treated just like another crew member. If anything, my seniorty with the airline, 35 yrs., is more of a conversation topic than my age itself. They all want to know what it was like back in the "old" days!

    Thanks As I was reading this I was thinking to myself that I can say exactly the same thing about you. It is one of the first thoughts I ever had about you and it does show.

    I am happy to hear that! I actually think it is kinda cool being older now and one of the things I was always concerned about is whether or not I would be "bitter" because I used to hear that was a fate we all faced once upon a time.

    ...and the stories you have are probably the best ones...experience has it's rewards.

    Thanks for sharing that...I am glad to know you feel comfortable and am hoping that it will be the rule for me instead of the exception. Maybe I will go to the gym again today in the afternoon/early evening as it does have a few conveniences going later does not.
