Moods that are angry, mad, frustrated and so on, tend to have a very bad attitude. That results in disrespect being brought out. You can’t earn respect by always displaying a bad attitude all the time and expect anyone to want to be around you. If you’re having a bad day and accidentally bump into someone without apologizing, causing them to drop all of their things, that’s disrespectful. For one you bumped into someone, then you made them drop their stuff, and three you didn’t stop, help or apologize. What should’ve happened was, firstly apologizing, then picking up their stuff without asking, and finally, you should ask them if they are okay. The way your attitude is shown to the other person probably is setting them up to have a rough day themselves. Recognizing the problem and then listening closely to the response, is all a key part of being respectful. Looking out at the end to see if that person is okay is showing a positive attitude. Even though the person you accidentally bumped might have a bad attitude, you should be the bigger person and have a positive attitude.
