-When you call your teacher ma'am
You didnít before?

Calling your parents and your teachers Sir or Ma'am should come naturally. I think it rather disrespectful not to give them the respect they deserve.

In the parts of the world where we live in the 21st century, said teachers prefer Mr. Smith or Mrs Smith, or even Dr. Smith.

In the part of the world where I live (TN), all adults tend to be addressed as "Sir" and "Ma'am."  The two teachers in my family only get addressed as "Mrs. Wilson" or "Miss Wilson" when there are multiple "ma'ams" present and there is a need to distinguish one from the group.

And in the liberally dominant area where I'm from, most teachers/adults prefer being called by their first names, rarely even Mr./Mrs. Jones. They tell us to stop if we even start to call them sir/ma'am.

Let me just say that after a few months of waiting, seeing the conversation go this far off topic is a bit discouraging. So here are some new you might have gone to encampment ifs. Again, never done any of these myself and I never will.

You build a professional Obstacle Course in your backyard
You bring your 24 hour pack on a regular neighborhood stroll
You look for uniform mistakes in regular civilians
You snap to attention when answering someone of higher authority
You ask for a buddy to come with you to the restroom
You ask for a buddy to come with you anywhere

Please refrain from using ASCII text to create wastes of space. Thank you in advance. While creative, it has no place on CAPTalk.

Space? Where? How?

It is huge, ungainly, and took me 5 minutes to decipher what it was. Looks like the meme of Picard doing a face palm.

you wake up doing to-the-rear in you sleep. (this happened to me at my basic encampment and I almost fell off the bunk  ;D )
you randomly notice when people have their hair out of regs.
you form a ripple line in the mess hall at school
you constantly have jodies running through you head
you stalk all the people from your basic encampment on Facebook
you don't stop talking about encampment till your next one
you can't stand people who ask you, "Why would you do that?!" when you tell them you just spent a week of your summer at a boot camp for fun
you listen to the songs from your encampment video every day and tear up with nostalgia
you square your corners in public
you have to stop yourself from shouting "YES SIR!" at your teacher when he asks something

You refer to the cafeteria at your school as the mess hall.
