curtsy. This causes some confusion to her squire, as he can't call her Ser either, as she's not a man yet wears a knight's armor.
** Arya doesn't like being called "milady" due to her discomfort with being a ProperLady and even shoves Gendry to the ground when he teases her about it. Though as she's [[SweetPollyOliver disguised as a boy at the time]], there's a practical reason as well.

* Han Solo was like this in ''Literature/StarWarsLegends''. He'd get addressed as General Solo thanks to his rank in the rebellion, but he didn't like it. He always thought it was too stuffy and high and mighty and preferred to just be called Captain, like he always had been before.

* Sandor Clegane of ''Series/GameOfThrones'' doesn't like being called "ser". Unlike many examples, it's actually incorrect, as he is not a knight (though many assume he is, what with being the personal bodyguard of the Crown Prince). Beyond that, Sandor doesn't think much of knights -- after all, his [[CainAndAbel brother]] is one.
