  • I'm a cashier at a grocery store and I don't like it when guys call me any of those names. Especially since its usually creepers who do it. I'd like to keep that between my hubby and I. =]

  • If I know them and are comfortable around them(like DH's friends or mine) then Id be alright with it.
    If its a stranger, Id be a bit put off but probably wouldnt say anything just give a look LOL.

    If its an old man Id just smile politely.

  • i call all sorts of random people "sweet baby" or "honeypie" and a host of other pet names for absolutely no reason. well... not at work. but in literally any other situation. my husband called me "babe" from the moment he met me. i thought it was crass and awesome. there is in fact no stick in my butt. it makes life pretty easy.

  • I'm an almost 45 year old slightly overweight woman. It is totally disrepectful for anyone besides my husband to call me pet names, especially those.

  • The only person that had better be calling me that is my husband and if it is not they are going to her about it, In my opinion it is rude and disrespectful.

  • Just about every close friend I have has a pet name for me & those don't bother me at all. With strangers, if I sense that they mean well (like an older woman at a store saying, "Thank you, Dear" if I reach something for her), then I just smile & ignore it. But if it is done in a leacherous tone, I just smile & say, "Did I mention I have 5 kids???" That usually stops them dead. :)
