You. The usage of khyod (and its plural form khyod tsho) is quite different in classical and modern Tibetan; in classical Tibetan it is not considered impolite or disrespectful and is even used to address buddhas, deities and lamas, while in modern colloquial and literary Tibetan it is generally considered to be familiar and non-honorific, often indicating closeness, friendliness, humor or in some cases aggression, and is mostly used with friends and family and not with strangers.
