I hate it when people call me "sir"
I prefer to keep things friendly and informal and have a chat with people. I find it difficult to do this with people who insist on addressing me as "Sir".

I feel it puts up barriers and implies that I am in some way different to them, and that we don't have any common ground. Maybe I'm over-analyzing it, but I don't much care for it.

I hate it when people call me.."Boss Man". It makes me think that this person has spent time on a prison chain-gang.

Re: I hate it when people call me "sir"
As a way of combatting this I've been referring to them back as "Sir/Ma'am" if they call me "Sir".

Would this come across as too passive-aggressive?

I like when people get butthurt over the most nonsensical small things. It makes them easy to control and move into doing whatever you want. Simple-minded folk like OP are useful when you don't want to lose high quality people.

'Sir' is a British title implying servitude.
Some people are masochistic and demand to be called 'Sir'.

Sounds like you got butthurt over a simple post.
It's ok.
We know where to find you, so we don't end up losing any of those "high quality people".

Shut the fuck up.

It's a matter of respect to begin with.

You're not a young cool kid. You're getting older.

It's better than the alternative

which is not getting older

because you're dead.

Actually, it would give the impression that you were raised right.
There's a man in a white house with blood on his mouth!
If there's Knaves in the North, there are braves in the South.
We are three thousand horses, and not one afraid;
We are three thousand sabres and not a dull blade.
