    Default Sir

    I notice some of you address some as "Sir" in this forum.
    When someone says "Sir" I expect to turn around and see my father there.

    Don't ya feel kinda old when someone calls you "Sir"?

    To be honest that's what it is. Respect. I don't think enough people use it these days. I know I use it alot and get funny looks when I do.

    Those that I know are military officers (e.g. MCMustang) I will refer to as sir. It is the respectful thing to do.

    I might say 'yes or no, sir' when responding to someone because I treat all people equal until given reason to do otherwise.

    It is refreshing to interact with people who have manners and earn respect through their actions.

    It is a sign of respect given from one person to another. I even say sir and Ma'am to the kids at McDonalds and the gas station. I figure maybe if I show respect they will do the same when interacting with others. Just how I was raised and then trained.

    A little politeness goes a long way in promoting a civil society. Think about that guy in the recent thread/vid that shot the neighbor, if he had gone over to the house, and said "Good evening sir, could you tone down the music just a little please?"
