that's nice. On the other hand a friend of my mom's knew him from a professional setting and said he was rude,egotistical and downright hateful

Okay here it is Yes Jimmy Carter is a huge jackass-he has money in a well known company which I won't say...since he taught school...anyway, I used to work there and he would call and scream at you if you did not address him as "Mr. President." We had notes in his account that basically said he is known to abuse the employees..

If anyone has ever held the title of President Of The United States, that is how you refer to them until the day they die. Not Mr. Carter, Mr. Reagan, Ronny, Barack, ect. They are to be called "Mr. President". That is just how it is!!

That is appropriate (though not illegal) protocol, true, but...

No kidding-but I'm sure talking to someone over the phone and accidently saying "Mr." I'm sure they don't deserve abuse...trust me on this he was a big jackass

I've met 4 celebrities over the years. Two were wonderful and two were complete horses' hind ends.

Kevin Constner - Sat across from him on a flight to London. A true gentleman and very polite.
Paul McCartney - ran into him out with his family for lunch in NYC back in the 70s. He and Linda were very nice and excellent with their kids!
Cher - What a Prima Donna! In her eyes the world revolves around her alone
Jerry Lewis - one of largest hind ends I have ever had the displeasure to meet!

I never met Sir Paul, but I have 2 friends who actually met him....one in the mid 1970's and the other within the past 10 years.
Each one said he was totally nice and regular, extremely personable.
