Re: arrrgh!!!!!!!!

They also have this thing about the personal pronoun (?) where you have one that's supposedly more respectful of people you use it with and another one you're only supposed to use amongst friends and siblings, Sie/Du. -A relic, no doubt, from the ancient ages where being older than you automatically made people more important than you and therefore to be addressed accordingly...

We have the same thing here, and while the word used to address your 'betters' with almost disappeared from use in the latter half of the last century, I'm afraid it's having a comeback these days
