    This is my pet peeve about manners in 2013; or lack there of....I'm from the south, however I don't fit the bill as traditional southerner. I joined the military and left home and for the past 10 years, I've lived both abroad and in liberal settings in the US. Now I'm on the West Coast and I call EVERYONE (pets and kids included) "Sir" or "Ma'am", at work, people are amused because I refer to everyone as "Mr. Eddie" or "Ms. Sandy". I am constantly met with, "YOU MAKE ME FEEL OLD, don't call me that. That's not my name..." But they'll gripe about "these kids got no manners, they always late!" Its manners and its respect. You should embrace it where you get it.
