General rule of thumb is to always treat people like you want to be treated, but that means that I know I expect myself to find solutions to problems
and be an active participant in figuring out how to fix problems in my life. If that's the expectation I have for myself, why should I treat others
like I expect less from them?
I respect that people are capable of doing for themselves in almost every situation. Why should I assume less because they look poor?
Now, none of that means I expect that people do it all alone. People do need help from time to time, but that doesn't mean people should always need
it all done for them. It's a partnership. As a family, when we help out, it's because the person being helped is also working toward fixing their
In fact, nothing is worse when you're working a job to make ends meet than to be patronized and treated like an ignorant stupid sot who can't do for
yourself because you're stuck behind a register.
"OH, you poor, poor thing!" Since you're the register jockey, you must be trapped and mired in a life of horrid squalor and uneducated ... so I will
condescend to you and talk down to you and generally treat you like an incapable boob because obviously you're working a register job.
