1. Lending a book knowing it will come back pristine with no prompting
2. Owning a well trained dog
3. Respecting dead quarry

And might be just me and OCD but will add. Looking after kit

Standing so a woman can sit,
Holding the door for the next person,
Arranging a time, then actually being there (early?)
 

RED-DOT

Account Suspended
1. Anything other than tweeds collar & tie on the peg.
2. The now fashionable competitive angling.
3. Females now more male than men... Tattoos, drinking pints, smoking rollups.

Ladies being Ladies and never using foul language (like most youngsters do)
Discipline & respect in schools and life generally.
Punishment for crime including death so that I may be able to leave a gun behind the kitchen door once more without it vanishing and being used.

Being able to smile, nod, greet or generally acknowledge people without it raising a concern or caution in them.

Older folk acknowledging and thanking youngsters when they are polite or helpful. (Really raises my hackles when a child or teenager hold a door, step aside or pick something up and the older person they are respecting just blanks them !)

Being able to speak to a child / youngster whether positively or in mild rebuke (e.g. please stop stepping on my foot.) without being verbally attacked by the adult with them.

All the above plus.

Respecting your elders
Respecting others rights of free speech
Respect what you have worked hard for and not to take it for granted because it can all be taken from you so quickly,

Bob,

All of the above !

Would add;

Lack of respect for quarry. Alive or dead.
Poor appreciation/lack of safe practice.
