Dealing with old lady bosses

Not sure if anyone has the same issue, but it can be frustrating when your boss is an old lady, for the following reasons:

1) militaristic - they expect you to greet them and show them respect for 'farming' until where they are. Don't they know that in this age, respect is earned not given?

2) inflexible and stubborn - uses very traditional ways of doing things, insists stubbornly she is right and you must be wrong

3) when i was your age ... - Always says that you don't know better, oppresses you with the saying that the amount of salt she has has is more than the rice you have had

4) very adverse attitudes towards technology

I think these are problems of a generation gap. Your boss may still be living in another era, where you are respected by your rank and status, not by your capability. Moreover, your issues may arise because she is used to a slower pace of life and is unable to keep up with the rapid changes today, whilst you are in sync with it

Actually, old lady boss wants respect, she craves respect from all.

So I guess the priority here is to keep a balance of making the boss happy whilst getting the job done?
