In the US, especially in the southern States, many boys are still expected to call their fathers Sir.

I help at my 7 year-old's school and when I am there I tell her to call me "Mrs S...." ; she responds by doing so, whilst tugging her forelock! Cheeky moo.

My Mum went back to work as a school nurse after my sister started school, by which time I had gone to CH, but she used to amuse us with an imitation of my brother's expression when she turned up as the 'nit-nurse'.
