    Excuse me sir! Yes madam, how can I help?

    Is it formal to use the following questions and responses sentences

    Excuse me sir!
    Yes madam, how can I help?
    Can you please help me carry my suitcase?
    Unfortunately, I cannot. I am running late.

    Welcome to the forum.

    I have changed your thread title so that it includes some of the sentences you are asking us about. I have added the actual question to the main body of the post.

    See my suggested amendments above. I would say it's a fairly formal exchange.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
