Does it bother you when older men call you "young lady" or "sweetheart" I cannot stand it. I just called to get my oil changed and the man on the phone said "ok young lady, see you in a bit". Grrr!!! Lol (I'm 27)

He had no way of knowing your age over the phone he's probably in his sixties and assumes most people are younger than him I think that it's polite I don't mind it all btw I am 27 also

Yes it bugs me but I don't like anyone calling me that. It just seems derogatory like they don't respect me.

I don't mind. I just get pissed when they go over board. All the older men here in Tennessee say young lady, miss, sweetheart. Most of them mean well but some...geeze! I was a waitress and I have dealt with both gentlemen and gross pervs.

Nah. I think it's funny when I answer the phone and people still ask if they can speak to my mom!

How is that respectful? Ma'am or miss is respectful.
