When I read or hear someone saying they find it offending to be called “honey” or “sweetie” by a waitress, I kind of find it
I don’t even use any of those words when addressing my husband or anybody for that matter. I will write something like “hello good looking” and that’s the extent of my “sweetness”, because I won’t really say it.
If someone I don’t know refers to me as ‘honey’, I can’t help to think: “Wait ‘til you get to know me!” Ha! They think I’m a sweetheart, good for them. Doesn’t hurt me, quite the contrary, I think it’s flattering in a way; I guess I give an impression that isn’t really showing my true nature… and that is a good thing!
So, if you’re one of those people who do get offended, why is that? Care to explain, please, I’m curious?
