Default Don't Be Afraid, But Have Respect! :)

Hello, yet again!

I don't know about you, but I get sort of nervous when I talk to an adult of any kind. Even maybe a mod or admin on here! Not a weird kind of nervous, but I act a little differently, more mature, because I know that I am talking to an adult and I'm trying to make them think that I'm responsible and mature.
Although I haven't seen this, I know it happens. People talk back to adults or their friends. And it's not right. Here's an example of a conversation.

Person1 (adult or kid):
HEY! What's up, my homedawg in the house!!? When will you do that order? PLEASE PLEASE PLEASEEE get it done soon! THANKIES! *hugs*

Person2 (probably adult):
Hello. Please don't rush me, I am very busy lately and will do it when I can. Thank you.

Person1:
WHAT! I want my order NOW please! Whatever! I'm never going to talk to you again!

And Person2 doesn't respond, because it will result in a huge argument. Now, if you were somebody mature, and you knew who you were talking to, this might be how you act.

Person1:
Hello! How are you doing today? I was just wondering when my order will be done from your shop, but there's absolutely no rush! Take your time! Thanks so much and have a great day!

Person2:
Hi. I'm fine, thank you! Sure, your order will be done soon; I've just been a little busy, but I'll get to it as soon as I can. Thanks for being so patient!

Now which conversation sounds more controlled? Probably the second one.
So what I'm trying to say, is when you're talking to somebody of..a 'higher authority', don't be afraid to speak up, but have respect for the person, too! They have feelings as well!

Great thread! There's no reason to be afraid to talk to the adults on the site though. They are members just like us, and most of them are very nice to speak with. (:

I'd love to give you rep,but I have to spread some around! I agree! I try not to rush the adult's because they have jobs,and kids,so therefor most are very busy. Great thread!

Deffinatly agreed!
On WI here, everyone probably wants to be well known for helping people out and responsible and mature. I know I'd never talk to an adult like that on here on WI. Especially since I don't know them.
Also, in that coversation, people should also be a bit more patient because people on here actually have lives and cant be on 24/7!

WhiteTerrierFan- You're absolutely right. I don't not talk to them, because I'd be missing out! But everyone should have respect for the staff!!

Lizzy-Exactly! Thanks!

Iciee- You have a great point! Everyone has lives outside of WI and shouldn't be rushed for any reason!

Wow, this does show your maturity. Yes, all adults do want and expect to be shown respect and yes we do have lifes outside of WI and WW. Sometimes things come up and just like kids we cannot get online as much as we would like! Great thread.

I always am more "formal" while talking to a mod or admin. I will type in more of a letter format, then just chatting.

Katey- exactly! It's all in how you present yourself to others. If you are immature, people will think you're immature.
Clublab- thanks for posting!
HPF- Yeah, formal was the word I was thinking of! Hehe!

Thanks for posting everyone! Jeez, I can't keep up with all of you!
