It Makes Me Crazy, How About You?!?!?

Does it drive you up the wall one someone who you don't know calls you "Hun", "sweetie" or, "dear", I have even been called "love" by some random men when I was waiting tables!!! It doesn't bother me if I know you, but it seems so belittling when someone who is a stranger says it?! Maybe I'm just nuts, who knows!!! :)

  • It bothers me when I hear people say it to elderly people. Like, "Really? Did you just call that 85 year old 'Shug' ??"

    It doesnt bother me personally so much...I really don't pay much attention to it.

  • I wouldn't mind it. Just don't take it personal. I say Baby alot and sometimes I accidently call other kids Baby not meaning anything by it. Just a love name and habit I guess.

  • It does drive me nuts when someone younger than me says it. I had a 16 year old waitress say it about 40 times in the half hour we were at a restaurant the other day and it was SO over the top!

  • Someone called my co-worker honey the other day...he was a contractor and one of the big bosses at my job flipped out on him and told him that he wanted him off the property. He even called his boss and the contractor got ripped a new one... I don't take it offensively but I guess it would depend on the situation.
