    Everyone were not from the South. Different culture I guess. It hasn't been many, probably three or four. But they're out there and live among us.

    based on my experience, the ma'am and sir are very southern things (and decreasingly so it seems). it doesn't really bother me one way or the other.

    regardless, i support the coach in bamabuzzard's post above.

    I was always taught to address someone how they wanted to be addressed (outside of obviously ridiculous situations). Especially when it dealt with a child and an adult. Heck, I've had older co-workers who were a salary grade or four higher than I was explicitly tell me (and others) to address them "Mr." and their last name. They weren't my boss/direct report either. I can only imagine what would have happened if I would have said- "I don't do that. Your first name is sufficient."

    If you've ever flown New Zealand Airways....the attendants all make a point of saying "Please" and "Thank you" when speaking to each other.

    They do to demonstrate courtesy.

    Perhaps it's a different slant from the "Sir" and Ma'am" discussion, I don't know.

    I was at the time and have been ever since, very impressed to observe what some will do in the quest to maintain a degree of etiquette.

    I can see a coach or a coordinator in the press box or sidelines with a big black rotary phone.

    I have yet to understand "throwing shade". I understand its meaning, but don't see any connection.
