Does introducing yourself as a captain have expectations associated with the title?
In the movie “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dean Man’s Chest”, Captain Sparrow claimed to only be a captain for two years out of a 13 year agreement because he experienced a viscous mutiny. However, he introduced himself as captain for all of those 13 years.
Was he a captain or not?
In society titles are thrown around with intent to be known as. The problem is that the title should be used to be known for.
If you use the doctor title then you should be known for being able to provide immediate health aide.
Be worthy of your title, whatever it is (Mom, Dad, Uncle, CEO, Doctor).
And raise the standard of what you expect out of those who call themselves titles that they don’t live up to.
