So if someone is insulted by being called sir or mam is it still respectful to address them that way?

 I won't know if you're insulted until after  I say it, the n you can tell me how offended you are and  I might even apologize.

Most folks I know at lest those around my age or older, recognize the effort to be respectful though and will joke it off if it makes them uncomfortable.

I don't take offense when someone refers to me as "Mr." or "Sir" who knows for sure what they're thinking. Could be out of respect or that they think I'm an old fart.  :-D

I think more than anything its a sense of security issue if you think about it. If you're secure in who you are, it shouldn't really matter how you're addressed.

Now with children, I believe they should respect their elders and address them as "Sir" and "Ma'am".

That's how I was raised it was sir or mam to any adult even if you did not like them.

Anytime annette, I like your pic with the umbrella.  I always thought of california differently, being in NY.  It is all farmland here.  I thought of it as beaches and grapes, not sophistication. :)

Back in the days.....when I was in the Army I used to address female officers as, ie, "Yes, Captain, ma'am, sir!"  Figured that way I had all the bases covered.

A very good friend of mine took this photo of me in 2006 when I started beekeeping. I thought it was rather nice and used it.  Now JP has my umbrella :delivery:

I am from New York originally (Brooklyn to be exact) and I always thought of California as hippie land until I finally moved out here and experienced how diverse the people are.
Actually I live in cowboy land out here in Placerville. Really nice friendly people.

i just went to the beach house and realized i hadn't been there in 3 years.  i couldn't believe that much time had gone by :-( .  no one should get so busy that they forget to enjoy what they have.
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

I live out in the country! :-D  Horses across the stone and gravel road.  Deer on my front lawn every morning when I drink coffee getting ready for work.  Had to find a place away from the city for my wife and I to start a family after we got married.  It is nice, it is home.
Annette, been to brooklyn only a few times.  Very busy place!  Brooklyn is the nicest of the bouroghs in NYC, a lot better than Bronx!
Have a great day! :)

I really hate going back to New York. All the noise and commotion. Now I live on 3 acres with hubby and geese, raccoons, skunks,fox, deer, mountain lions (although haven't seen one yet), etc. 

By the way, heard it is supposed to rain this weekend. So I believe Fall has come upon us here rather early. I am so ready for this cooler weather.

I'll make you a deal JP. Since Schawee has taken you out alligator hunting, you come on out here and I will take you Mountain Lion hunting. Even though I have never actually seen one, I bet we can find one and kill it and skin it and you can eat it.

Over here they are on game cams every once in a while.  They eat the deer just like coyotees do.  Black bear are filling up now, do not like the taste, must be marinated for a while.  But it all is how you cook it.  It is fall here, all my maples leaves are colored and falling, very pretty for the kids.  We own 23 acres and are surounded by a retired dairy farm on one side and a horse farm on the other so lots of room.  That is why NYC is busy for me if I visit.
