I agree with most of this, especially the respect bits. However, not every law student in intelligent. I was once asked by a female classmate if I was a "stewardess" (I'm a dude) because of my rolling book bag. Stewardess' are called flight attendants now, which wasn't my issue. My issue was that stewardess' are ALL female.
She was calling you a girl because you have a rolling bag. Dumbass. And I find it fascinating that you're calling other people stupid and you don't know the difference between the possessive and plural form of "stewardess".
Since you weren't there, how can you say what she meant?
For my own amusement, allow me to provide my recollection of the actual discussion instead of everyone relying on your fallacious assumptions. Funny how you call me stupid, then reflect your own stupidity by jumping to a conclusion based on absolutely nothing more than what I wrote.
her (upon seeing my rolling bag): Are you a stewardess?
her: you know, your bag. Are you a stewardess?
me: How could I attend law school full time while being a stewardess?
her: You could totally do that!
me: nope. Plus, how could I be a stewardess if that term is the female version of the word steward?
her: Oh my god, whatever.
me: All stewardesses are female, are you calling me a woman?
her: no, I'm asking if you are a flight attendant.
me: no. I am not a flight attendant. I am especially not a female flight attendant.
That's about how the convo went.
As for your ridiculously childish nitpicking, blow me. This is a forum, not a grammar competition. If you enjoy the idea of picking on people for grammatical mistakes, perhaps you would like to revise your erroneous sentence structure. The word "Dumbass." is not a sentence and it is improper to being a sentence with the word "And". Just pointing that out makes me feel like a feminine hygiene product.
Additionally, I have other anecdotal evidence that speaks to the person in questions stupidity, but that's not important right now. What is important is that you have proven to be a grade A feminine hygiene product. Congratulations! Your post has accidentally proven my point - there are a lot of people unworthy of respect that are either currently or planning to attend law school. Sometimes that can be attributed to their intelligence and sometimes that comes down to the fact that some people (read: folks like you) think they are smarter than everyone else and choose to pretend that others around them are morons when, in fact, they are childish buffoons with low self esteem and poor social skills.
Now, go find other posts with spelling, punctuation, or grammatical errors. Please notice them, get all worked up about it, and then shut the f*(k up about it. Lest we forget, this is an online forum, not a law journal. Get your head out of your ass and grow up a bit please. Ok? Thanks!
