Depends on what you mean by north. Plenty of people I know living above the Mason-Dixon Line call their teacher ma'am or sir.

Seriously. 

If respect and common courtesy isn't enough, how about self-preservation?  Anyone who provides you a living, a service, or can potentially negatively
effect your life should always be referred to in that manner.
Growing up in Michigan just a few short decades ago my teachers seemed to HATE being called sir or ma'am.
They were big fans of being called Mr. xxx, Ms. xxx, Mrs. xxx or Dr. xxx if they had their phd.
In every conversation you said their name no less than 3 times. I think people in Michigan just like to hear their names out loud.

Not to be contradictory or anything.... same thing in reality. Formal and respectful at all times.

Disclaimer: in real life I do not use ďainít" or double negatives.
Hate to break it to you.. but this is real life, too. There's plenty of life lessons where "it's only the internet" came back to bite.. hard.
Point taken. Unless I'm joking I donít use ďainítĒ or double negatives. Better?

In IL ever since I moved here it was Mr/Mrs/Ms xyz. In E.Europe it was Name and Patronym. So had I stayed there, it wouldn't be Mr. Hatkevich, it would be Mihail Valeryevich.

You might've gone to encampment if...
1. You wake up at 0500 and do PT.
2. Your alarm is revelry.
3.You know at least 50 ways to change into your BDU's in less than 5 minutes
4.You can take a complete shower in less than 2 minutes
5. Your room is set to inspection standards
6.When you're in line for food at school, you do the Air Force shuffle
7.You don't stop talking about encampment until the next one starts

Please fill in your own...

Are we talking about encampment or basic training?

I went to the same encampment and she's barely exaggerating.

Yah, we did PT once, and it was at night. Or around 1900ish.

Black Knight, did you go to the NYWG 2012 Encampment? We only did 1 PT, on the 1st or 2nd day, after dinner. (Which was a terrible idea.)

None of that is really that big a deal, encampment-wise.  Few of them will be doing 0500 starts anymore, but beyond that,
pretty much SOP.

Yes, I did. I was in Charlie Flight. Got the third highest scire.
And doing PT after dinner was horrible. I believe it was the 2nd day we did PT

-You carry your camelbak/canteens with you everywhere.
-You still study your OI in your free-time.
-Your friends ask why are there 6 numbers written on your gym shorts

- You sleep at the position of attention or parade rest
- You call the room to attention when your teacher walks in the door
- You eat your lunch in 3 minutes flat and hold your empty cup over your head to show everyone it is actually empty
- You take your Red Sox cap off when you go indoors (sorry, I'm an old fan...)
- When your siblings do something wrong, you tell them to drop and give you 20
- You put hospital corners in your bed after you wake up in the morning
- You blouse your jeans into your tennis shoes before going to school
- You refuse to wear any color t-shirt other than black or white
- You raise your hand in class and ask the teacher, "Permission to ask a question?"
- You start to feel like you can't be friends with someone because they haven't been to an encampment or aren't in CAP
- When walking down the hall and an adult approaches, you hit the wall
- You salute your principal and your parents in passing and then get angry when they don't say "Good morning, cadet" or return the salute
- You actually believe that MRE's have great flavor
- You don't leave home without first checking to make sure that your CAPID is in your pocket and your canteen is full

I've got tons more...

-Your that one cadet that walks around with a camelbak sucking on the thing constantly like it's a friggin' pacifier.

DON'T BE THAT CADET. SAY NO TO THE CAMELBAK "BINKY".

I actually do this fairly often wih my Yankees hat (apology accepted) because I don't really wear a hat unless it's a cover and I've been raised that its not polite to wear a hat indoors.

I know it's common in the south but no one really does it up north.
Actually it isn't really common in the south. Well at least it isn't down here in Georgia. A bunch of kids are rude and disrespectful.

When I grew up the first 12 years of my life in California, not once did I ever hear ma'am. Totally different story now in Georgia.

Also...
-When you wake up before your alarm goes off.
-When you whistle your flight Jodie.
