    Yeah, having the students call me Dr. already gets me enough comments. What if I made them call me "Lady" too!

    Rip off. Pure and simple, aimed at our deprived colonial cousins (such as the poor bloody English).

    Yup, back when I worked in the local farm supplies (many moons ago) a woman came in to request opening up an account, I handed over the forms to her for her to fill in. She handed them back and told me to do it, gritting teeth and remembering that the customer is always right I made a start, looking up at her I said 'Mrs?' requesting her surname, she told me 'Well actually it's 'Lady, cross through the Mrs you have checked there and write in Lady'

    It never appeared on the account, just went under the surname just like all the others.
