Southern

In the Southern parts of the US, people frequently say "M'am" or "Sir" as a matter of every day conversation. 
"Thank you, Sir" or "Yes, M'am" you'd say to the waiter or sales person or clerk or ... Anyone. It's just a matter of normal conversation. 

I was remarking to my Sir about that on the phone today and he said, "It is nice. 
It's much easier to hide natural submission in the South."  

Hmmmmm

    1. That is unusual in Chicago! In the South...everyone says it. I've gotten the - "Oh don't call me Ma'am" before...though never "don't call me Sir"....hmmmmm.
