I agree, but in the opposite sense... you're not my friend or my family, so when I introduce myself as Miss Wilson, please don't call me by my first name. Amen to that! When I give the whole term to do some work, please don't leave it until the last night. And please don't expect me to "make an exception" and allow your child to hand it in late. And please, PLEASE do not ever say "If it weren't for your class my child would be on the honour roll" on parent-teacher nights.
