My two cents, I don't think it is possible to refer to oneself as "old school" but then make comments like the one about the cheerios.

oh so if I'm old school I can't add a new school slang word.....sorry....just trying to keep up with the times and lingo slang.....this 52 yr old has always said --yes sir and no Ma'am.....since I was little.....we were always taught to respect the authority of Law Enforcement and our elders......I guess today that is a thing of the past.....but not in my household....my son says yes sir and no sir..... but is also taught people, including persons of authority are not infallible, but to still give respect no matter what----period!!

We have beaten this subject to death, and what people feel about authority figures such as police has an emotional as well as a practical side. Not to like some treatment by some police officers, is the same as not liking some people, some neighbors, etc. and that is just a fact of life. I say yes sir to the cops, and I pay my occasional fine, and that has nothing to do with not liking their haughty and superior attitudes. Their job gives them no right to be discourteous. Some people talk like the police are special, and they are not. They put their pants on one leg at a time. They are over paid for the work they do in this little town, and that is part of the reason our taxes go up, and then up more when the police do stupid things and get sued.
