In which I am called Madam

Walking back from the shop just now, I saw a Men at Work sign in the road. I found a man and his van practically in my garden, mending the street lamp. When I spoke to him, he called me Ma’am. Twice.

How wonderfully old fashioned :)
I was slightly gobsmacked! He was a young chap, too.
An ambition realised? :-)
An expectation!
Gosh! Quite right, too, but still, not what you normally get.

I'm always rather taken aback when someone calls me 'sir', and feel as though they can't possibly have seen me properly.
Heh! Perhaps it depends on how old the Sir-er is :-)
Yes, but did he bow? : )
Heh! Tricky manoeuvre, from a cherry picker.
