The best way for you to show your respect to people is to ALWAYS follow up and return calls and email. We are all busy and it only takes seconds to return a email, even if it is just to say that you are busy and will reply later ( and be sure to reply later).
When someone doesn't return your call or email how do you receive it ?
I feel as if I am not important enough to that person. And I'm not I guess because they cannot even take a few seconds out of their day to reply something..anything.
Showing respect is much more than just saying sir and mame ..
Let your actions SHOW respect..
