"Sir?" "Sir!"

One of the nice things about teaching in England is that the teachers are referred to as "Sir" or "Madam." Even my department head calls me Sir. How refreshing to walk down the hallway and hear, "Good morning, Sir," or to be in class and hear, "Sir? I have a question." It sure beats some of the names I've been called.

And, a few students have held the door for me, or even stopped to let me pass through first.
