Indian boys, can you educate me as to why your scammers drop the word "sir" so much?

    It’s the college culture, it forces you to call your seniors ‘sir’.
    I have few friends that still call them sir even after college
    It’s so fucking cringe

    I tend to refer to anyone who I don't know as sir or ma'am. It is a formal respectful way to address someone. If someone prefers to be addressed another way they usually tell you.

    It used to be the normal respectful greeting in the UK and US as well, in fairness - things have just gradually become more colloquial to the point formal speak now sounds odd and uncanny in most contexts.

    @AlmondSauce depends on what part of the US you're in though. I'm originally from a place where sir/mam is still super common in day to day conversations while talking both to your "superiors/elders" and vice versa. But it's weird going back and hearing it after moving for sure.

    Yeah, I don't think you guys are getting what I'm saying. It's obviously fine to use "sir" but they use it at a comedic rate. Literally every sentence.
