@ThePandaPool , Cunt actually isn’t censored
Years ago, when I was working retail through university, I had a manager that wrote me up because I called them sir too often. It would slip out occasionally and I would apologize for it when I realized it had or when he pointed it out. They were from the south but felt insecure about their age I guess and declared it as “ongoing disrespect of a manager” Jokes on him though, a year later he was fired for sexual misconduct and harassment. Turns out he was cornering the female workers and making sexual remarks or casually feeling them up. It ended up being caught on camera multiple times where he did I it and the girls told him to stop. Even had sexual relationships with a 2 or 3 of them outside of work. Apparently he’d been transferred from another store for doing the same thing there. He was about late 30s and we were located close to my university so the girls and most of us workers were about 17-22. Super weird situation.
@The Wolverine, sounds like a great candidate for one of the Saw movies.
@The Wolverine, we have a 40 year old man that like to make inappropriate comments to a 17 year old. Super fvcked up idk how he still has a job
@lilwhiteboyz, ive always wondered how ppl still have jobs. I met countless ppl like this.
@The Wolverine, i say it out of indoctrination. And learned to use miss instead cause it makes women feel younger. Like saying senorita ibstead of senora or dama. Anywho i feel like some ppl getvoffended by me calling them miss . I mean you butches yes you the butch that i cannot tell whether your male or female. And since the world is based on appearances i need to know. Or else ima start say saying thank you kind human. I get those looks when i realised i said miss to a women that looks like a man and wasnt sure and other times sir to a women.
This has been such a hard habit to break. Especially when you accidentally say “sir” to an enlisted veteran. They always reply with, “Sir?! I worked for a living son!”... it’s like come on, just be happy some young people show respect still.
@Snarfel Burger, exactly
With all due respect SIR what you want is not more important than what is right
Can relate. Had old timer tech instructor from Alabama tell me "I understand your southern upbringing and appreciate the respect, but if you call me sir one more time, I'll whoop your ass", to which I replied "yes sir" completely on accident and out of habit. He laughed but was also annoyed.
One of the hardest things for me to adjust in college was calling the chill professors by their first names.
@18bluecat, my son's teachers are about 50/50 first name or last name. Mr. Pederson or Ms. Kristine. As 2 examples.
It feels wierd for me to call one of his teachers by a first name, let alone hearing him do it.
edit: probably should throw in he's 6, for better context.
@18bluecat, Even after years in college, the closest I can get is calling these professors by their last name without an honorific
I'm British living in America. I hate being called Sir. I'm not a knight. I haven't even met the Queen. The title of Sir isn't something I have achieved, so please don't call me that
@Emaciations, Its term of respect here because we don't have figure head monarchs. Your culture has no sway here, tea drinker.
@Drunk Pantless Uncle, Okay, but tea is pretty darn good
@Emaciations, only if it’s iced and filled with sugar
@Emaciations, sir you’re gonna have to accept our traditions of you don’t want your tea thrown in the harbor again
@Heywood Jablomi, you've never had a hot chamomile tea have you? How about lemon ginger? Try things, you'll be surprised.
@reaIDonaIdTrump, I’ve tried many different types of tea Mr. President, the fact of the matter is that sweet ice tea made by any true southern woman over the age of 40 is by far the most orgasmic drink to ever cross the lips
@reaIDonaIdTrump, you can't possibly be the real Donald Trump and say that bullshjt
"I'm sorry Ma'am that's just how I am raised."
That's what yall think!
Me, a southerner, trying to teach my kids manners of which nobody else around here abides. I live in the Pacific Northwest.
The same face southerners make when they have to hold back from calling black people n*ggers.
I grew up down south mostly my family did not I still don’t say sir or ma’am unless I have to
