Call me John. Mr. Federico was my father...

"There was a time, in a more genteel society, that people addressed each other formally. They used Mister, Missus, Miss or, more recently, Ms. Increasingly, though, honorifics have yielded to first names. Like tattoos and hooking up, this trend is generational. People over 40 are more likely to be offended; under 40, it's instinctive."
