what's in a name?

You must have seen this quite a lot.

People standing aside for a so & so VIP person just because they hold a title that no one else holds here in Oman. And what's worse; these people take advantage of this by making demands making other individuals working things out of the ordinary just for little old them.

I hate that. I really do.

God gave you a name and that's what you should be called. And not by 'His Highness' or 'His Excellency'. Because, in all honesty, the only one who deserves for someone to move aside and do anything for him is His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said - the Sultan of Oman. Not because he is the leader, but he also brought us to the day and development that we have come to in this modern day and age.

Those others have done nothing for us.

Yes, I should respect them but that's not going to happen by me or anyone else calling them His Highness or His Excellency.

What's your opinion?
