Yes, Sir! Ma'am! Uh... Senator!

Something tells me that it's not that she worked so hard for the title. The same thing is true of PhD's insisting that you call them "doctor". It's not that they worked so hard for that title either. It's that by insisting that you use the title they're forcing you to remind yourself, them, and anyone listening that they're vastly superior to the rest of us and they won't soon let you forget it.

Now, you might be saying to yourself that a title doesn't really mean a whole lot. You might even know a lot of people with just such titles and wonder just exactly how they managed to wrangle such an appelative.

I can only speak from personal experience but what I have noticed is that the people most likely to insist that you use a title of respect are the least likely to be deserving of that title or of respect. Either way, I present a mockery of Barbara Boxer.
