It'* a reversal... aka sarcasm. No one can call you sir...because you aren't tall enough for them to think of you that way. And since you wear kid size 5 sneakers..I think the stud thing is a big of humor as well.

It is called having good manners. It doesn't matter the age, it is just a showing of respect. I don't mind being called ma'am cuz I sure have been called a whole lot worse

I don't look my age and people think I'm in my late twenties so Yay, for me But I don't mind being called ma'am.
