Okay, so I know that this is about a silly thing to feel conflicted about - but every time I see it or hear it -- for just a split second my mind goes "ew, don't do that" ... When I hear a man/woman (WHO IS MARRIED or otherwise committed) call another person by a term of endearment (honey, darling, sugar, babe etc) -- it just don't sit well with me.
If a man calls me something like that, I set him straight right that second, Diplomatically of course, never rude. And I never use terms of endearment with any man other than my husband (my sons and brothers/sisters are the only exception), Especially someone elses husband/ wife/SO.
Like I said, I know it's not *that big of a deal cause people just sometimes have a habit of calling everybody some term of endearment. But it just seems inappropriate to me almost all the time.
Tho I never say anything to anyone about it unless they are talking directly to me (or my husband) - Like one time I corrected a waitress for calling my husband "Babe" while I was sitting right there BUT at the same time she kept calling his friend, who was with us "Sir". How she was doing it was not acceptable because she was showing preference to my husband right in my face.
Is there something that just sticks in your craw for ?Answer Question
