Do your parents say “yes ma’am” and “no sir” to each other?

My parents are older and actually still alive. However, my parents, and especially my dad, will use “yes ma’am” and “no ma’am” as well as “yes sir” and “no sir” to each other.

Frankly, I’m appalled. I will never do this to any significant other.

Is OP Little Ricky?

OP you seem desperate for some kind of interaction. I hope things improve for you.

R2 it just seems so silly and subservient.

No. When I was young it was always Babe. Both ways. When they became grandparents it morphed into MA and PA. They were head over heels in love until the day they died.

I do it to my partner as a tease, since he just turned 60. Drives him mad.

OP, that's a low bar for being appalled. Where does murder rank?

OP, maybe it was sly sex talk you didn't understand.

No. That is how my mother and my aunt spoke to my paternal grandmother, though. And they never, ever addressed her by her first name or as Mother Soandso, but as Mrs. Soandso, even after 20 years of marriage.

Are your folks southern or was one in the military

If you're asking r10 (me), then, yes, my paternal grandmother was from Houma, Louisiana. My father's family also referred to each other by their family roles, e.g., my grandmother would tell my father: "Go get Brother. Dinner's ready." She meant for my father to get his brother.
