smudger. it's amazing what we then accepted as the "norm" in everyday life - take our young'uns back to then and I don't think they'd survive. When I first started work as an apprentice, you called your fellow workers "Mr" until they told you to use their first names, which was considered to be proper. And very few people at foreman and above allowed anything else except "Mr".
When I retired, raw apprentices were even calling senior managers by their Christian names. And telephone contact operators at the large institutions (banks, insurance, etc) now do the same with customers. many of the 'Upper Crust' seem to be clinging to the old ways though!
