Sir? Or is it Madam?

Facebook stuff

Asked by my grandson: Is there anyone out there who doesn't like being called Sir or ma'am? Why?  

Answer:  I'm too much of a grandpa for formality.  Either you're young enough to see gramps or you're in my age bracket. Either way I regard sir as a barrier.

  1. For the record, I don't mind formality in certain circumstances. There's nothing wrong with a polite bow and I really wish curtsies would come back, but in general I regard strangers as friends I haven't yet met and I expect the same in return.
