What is disrespectful to one could be normal to another
In my experience respect is earned
I have been around a few people that tell you what they think to the point they often sound incredibly rude in the moment. Those rude, disrespectful sob’s are my closest, most trusted friends.
An excellent point! And when they are rude and obnoxious to you, do you feel disrespected? No! In fact, that "rude" behavior is a demonstration of the depth of your bond and actually re-enforces your bond.
However, if something happened and your relationship became delicate, I suspect that the "rude" stuff would be shelved until the relationship was mended.

At the same time, I think it is wise to understand what disrespect looks like, and to recognize it when it pops up. And to embrace that the smallest disrespect, if ignored, will be slightly larger later. And repeat this over and over until things are really awful.
With any collection of people, some have greater respect than others.
