Why Still A Lot Of Us Still Using The Word "SIR"? by DreamChaser2000: 4:52pm On Jan 24, 2018
I just saw this picture on my feeds and I would like to share this to enlighten us all.

From now on, stop addressing someone as "Sir". Be aware.

Whoever the OP is must be stupid beyond all reasonable comparison. The word "Sir" has been in existence hundred of years before England started the whole colonisation thing.

That was how they said "LoL" means "Lucifer our Lord". Why are people utterly slow these days?

I don't believe it. Some Americans and British people use the word.

It's written "sire" in early British days. Now "sir"
Its not too late to go learn how to grow up.

The "origin" is different from the " meaning"

OP is talking ORIGIN

Google says the word started from 'sire'. Would you say 'sire' meant 'Slave I remain Eternally'?
Or didn't you see both meaning and origin in the google definition image?

So the 'sir' the Queen of England gives prominent people all over the world means 'slave I remain'?

OP please take some typhoid fever drugs.

Frederick Lugard had the title 'Sir' between 1901 and 1928, this is because he was knighted in 1901. This post is just as ludicrous as Nigeria having a young president in 2019.

You partly right...but reading through down the same page I saw something that points to what the guy is saying,it may not be explicitly pronounced but there's some truth

"But Etymoline shows that "Sire" in it's Noun form has always meant some variation of Feudal Lord" ...I quote

Simply put there's element of "master/ servant" relationship in it's origin
