What nickname do you absolutely hate?

for some reason i've gone my whole life without getting nicknamed "jules" or "jewels" because i dunno, i just hate it and would say so if someone said it.

but when i met my husband he started calling me that despite my arguments, and now everyone calls me that! i hate it!!!! oh, and he also calls me "babe" which i cannot stand. no matter how many times i say "please don't call me that"

sigh

  • In highschool my sister and dad would call me "Heartbreaker". I was a goody two shoes and just didn't put up for guy's crap and dumped each one I was with. I'm glad they stopped once I got married, lol. I also had a bf that called me "babe." That is soooo annoying!!!!

  • I never had a nick name I didnt like. My oldest dd I named her Kristen. If anyone was going to call her anything but Kristen I wanted it to be Kristy. Her dads sister went by Chrissy. My ex started calling our dd Krissy. I would tell him please dont no one likes it but you. She hated it too. Then her brothers started calling her Sissy or Krissy. She lives with it to this day and now has a baby girl whose almost 2 and guess what? Yep her uncles are her Sissy.

  • honey.
    I had a music teacher that would call me that every time he wanted to correct me on something. Never for a complement. So I cringe every time I hear it.
