Re: Who to call "Sensei"?

I'm sure Josh is right but I can just about imagine an exaggerated flattering use of sensei to imply that the customer looked like an affluent politician or lawyer, say. I have sometimes heard customers being called shacho (company president) in that way.

we can make our minds so like still water, and so live for a moment with a clearer, perhaps even with a fiercer life
