At What Point Did I Become a Mister?

The mail from one of my team’s recruiters today said that Mr. John Montgomery would be doing the “as appropriate” interview — the final interview of the day. Mr. John Montgomery. I realize I’ve been here eight+ years and that I’m not really young any more, what with the bad back, thinning hair, and expanding waistline. But to be Mistered just adds that level of insult to the injury.

Oh, to be young and know everything again.

    Did the candidate call you "sir"?

    So ask the recruiter to call you "Young Master Montgomery." In a foppish Brit accent.

    The candidate didn’t call me sir, fortunately, of I probably would have had to ask them to solve P vs. NP in five minutes.
