    The first one I had tried to call me Madam, but after she saw me wince, she switched to ma'am.

    I believe most Fillipino helpers are taught to call their employers Ma'am & Sir.

    Our helper too felt uncomfortable by calling us by our first names only so calls us ma'am / Sir + first name and this works well.

    I have noticed lots of asian people call me ma'am which I have now got used to, just seemed strange at first.
