    It feels weird and awkward.. i'm not a sir.. and having handed over a measly $5 of trade to the individual i'm hardly deserving of being ass licked all the time

    me: pays $5 for something
    them: thank you sir, kindly await my service
    me: thx
    them: please accept my services sir
    me: cheers
    them: kindly awaiting for your return business sir
    me: ok

    You should get used to it. No idea why, but most guys from the eastern countries (Asia) use "sir", sometimes even "dear" :D

    It's a cultural sign of respect.

    It can feel uncomfortable a tad as I don't go by Sir, Mr., or anything like that either but if you understand that is how they know to show respect you get used to it.

    In India, every regional language you will find 2 words for "you" one with respect and other generalized
    e.g - "Aap" in Hindi is used to give respect and "Tu" used commonly both translates to "You" in English
    In India we use "Sir" to show respect "How are you Sir"

    The most 'Sir' I had in one message received was 7! The message was pretty short too...
    As others said, it's some kind of sign of respect - but in the end it's mostly a phrase with no meaning. Someone might call you sir and then backstab you like everyone else.

    Rofl, do you possibly still remember that message?

    And yeah, this totally happens, even if I am way younger than them, when you show them the money, they start calling you all sorts of things.

    Just the way to show some respect ... There is nothing wrong at all if sellers calling you sir.

    Cheers

    We use it as a sign of respect. Moreover in some asian country, if you are older we would call you uncle or grandfather even if you're not blood related at all. We usually use sir if we could not confirm your age or dealing with vip or client.
