Ask a Question
Can people settle a debate between me and my son . We was on the bus coming home from town today and I seen a teacher who taught me when I was at high school and I waved to him and my son said whose that and I said a teacher called Mr Williams . He asked why do you call him Mr Williams and I said when at school or college I would never call them by there 1st names and even when I left school I would still call them Sir,Mr,Miss or Mrs ? My son said that if he ever sees his teachers out and about that they address there teachers sometimes by there 1st name . I know you are allowed to but to me there was an unwritten rule which it was expected to address them the way I do . Whose is right ?Me or my son .
