* ''Series/TheDoctorBlakeMysteries'': In "Family Portrait", the new police surgeon dismissively refers to Alice as 'Miss Harvey' and then tells her patronizingly that if if there is any investigative work to be done, he will do it. Alice's only reply is an icy "It's Doctor Harvey".

* Every sergeant ''ever'' who deals with new meat has used that line or a variation, or occasionally, when called 'sir', 'Don't call me "sir"; I work for a living!' While any member of the US Army with the rank of Sergeant or higher, such as Master Sergeant, may be addressed by a soldier as "Sergeant", woe betide any [[SemperFi Marine]] who calls ''any''Sergeant other than an actual E-5 "Sergeant". On the other hand, Gunnery Sergeants are often called "Gunny" by those 'deemed worthy', and Master Gunnery Sergeants are likewise called "Master Guns".

* In ''Franchise/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'', since the [[CloneJesus Saint King's clone]] is still the ''[[CrystalDragonJesus Saint King]]'', people sometimes refer to her as "Your Majesty", which really annoys her as she insists that she's just a normal third-grader so they should call her "[[spoiler:Vivio]]". [[spoiler: [[{{Bifauxnen}} Otto]]]] doesn't care and continues calling her that anyway as a form of teasing, causing some fans to start {{Shipping}} them.

** On the other hand, in the US at least, the actual "Captain" rank is three ranks higher in the Navy than the "Captain" rank in other branches of the military (O-6 vs. O-3). This troper was very confused why a Navy Commander (O-5) was referring to him as a superior on the phone until he realized he had neglected to specify ''Army'' Captain when introducing himself. The Commander was ''not'' amused.

** Booker in the alt-universe [=DLC=] ''VideoGame/BurialAtSea'' likewise asks Elizabeth to call him Booker as a call back to the main storyline, but Elizabeth refuses. While this initially seems to be a formality thing (Burial at Sea's Elizabeth is much older than the main game's), [[spoiler:it's actually foreshadowing that it's alt-universe in the most literal sense: that game's Booker is actually a repentant Comstock, and Elizabeth knows this and is leading him to his death. She likely refuses to call him Booker out of respect for the main game's Booker.]]

* ''VideoGame/BioShockInfinite'': Booker insists that Elizabeth call him by his first name, not "Mr. [=DeWitt=]", possibly out of refusal of formality or the fact that they've been through a lot together.

* ''Series/{{227}}'': Twisted and inverted in this mid-to-late 1980s African-American situation comedy starring Marla Gibbs. One episode saw Gibbs' character, Mary Jenkins, get after her teen-aged daughter, Brenda, after she refers to a neighbor -- building floozy Sandra Clark (Jackee Harry) -- by her first name. Even though "Mrs. Clark" freely allowed her teen-aged neighbors to call her by her first name ("Call me Sandra!"), Mary's rules were otherwise.
