Sometimes they WILL test you to the limit. You must not let them give it to you. They'll want a favor from you soon, and that's when you say; "How did you treat me the other day?" Let them wonder.
Be calm but stern to them and kindly let them know that what they are doing to you is is not acceptable. Put up a defense mechanism and don't let your guard down.
Let them know that if they want respect, they must also give it in return and earn it as well.
