This term has on its own taken on a sense of entitlement outside of Japan, whereas in Japan it is merely a description of one's vocation. It's probably best to just do as the Romans do. I have never personally offended anybody (to my knowledge) by calling them "Sensei", so that's a new one on me. Your sempai should probably just try to lighten up.
Yeah. Take a pill.
