    the folks from grand blanc Mi live about 10 houses away from me [​IMG] that was last nights episode.

    They were the happy go lucky fam...

    But if my son or kids forget to say yes sir no ma'am then there'll be hell to pay. That's just common respect around this house.

    I love Wife Swap! I thought last nights episode was a bit boring, did you guys see the one with the Etiquette teacher? "Don't be a Gloopy!"

    Haven't seen it, but as to Ma'am... I don't care for it either... educated a few folks...

    "Do I LOOK like I run a bordello?"

    "Uhhh no...?"

    "Then don't bloody well call me a madam!"

    This is Texas... so there's a lot of Ma'am going on... once you reach a certain point... before that it was Darlin'... so, that's a tell tell sign you're a fogey... when even the old guys call you ma'am.

    But, sir and ma'am is a mandatory in Dad's house... always annoyed the crap out of my mom that I'd come home from visiting up there and my manners were better than when I left. [​IMG]

    I didn't watch the episode, so I can't comment on the rest of the show. My kids have regular chores to do every day, but they get plenty of leisure time, too.

    We have reduced 'yes ma'am' to 'yes, um' Its sort of a lazy version. Yessum is how it rolls out.

    They are just stuck with 'sir' lol


    Many folks still believe in 'idle hands are the devils tools'. I am 40 and my parents and grandparents thoroughly believed in it.
