Khrap Pom ?

I have wondered about this often. Would I be correct in saying it should only be used by a subordinate to their boss/ customer/ client?

Yep.

Or as a joke to the wife/gf, if they have a sense of humour.

Yeah my wife uses it with me ( and throws in a sarcastic little salute ) if we're watching TV and I ( being in lazy bastard mode ) say something like " If you're going to the kitchen can you bring me a glass of juice "

It's actually a relatively recent development, only having become popular over the last 10 years or so, which is why it doesn't appear in most textbooks.

I beg to differ - I've heard ครับพม spoken for at least the last twenty years. But as others have said, it is usually said as a respectful acknowledgement, similar to "Yes, sir" in English, though, again as others have indicated, it can be used ironically.
