A certain peer never spoke to me until I myself was elevated to the same order. Should I acknowledge this?
— Snubbed Until ElevatedDear Snubbed,
Unfortunately this does happen from time to time, because there are actually people out there who think that pretend titles matter. You're better than that, though, and now that you're a peer you won't treat other people the same way. Right? Your response should be based on your peerage.
Pelicans: Be nice to this person in face-to-face encounters, but secretly begin to create a faction within the circle to crush this person and all who oppose you! Muah ha ha ha ha!
Laurels: Make snide comments about this person's garb.
Knights: Beat the crap out of this person at the next meeting where the king commands you to all show up in armor.
