Don't "Hon" me, Hon.

If you're significantly younger than me you have no business calling me "Hon".

Yeah sure, you're saying it over an intercom in the drive-thru of a Dunkin' Donuts and I am quite youthful (sounding. Some might describe me as "Juvenile", but not to my face), but after I've visited your establishment for my morning joe for the gazillionth time and we've exchanged pleasantries face to face, you can probably deduce by now that I was in high school when your mom and dad were doing the forbidden dance between the sheets (or in the back of a Ford Escort. Hey I don't judge).

Come talk to me when the hair on your head is a little more gray and the hair on your chin is a little more black. Bonus points if your girlie bits are stretched from the beauty and wonder of childbirth. Then I might even let you call me "Darling".

This just happened to me today at the gas station. Guy (kid) couldn't have been much more than 20.
Yes, at least it's not Maam. I hate that one.

I'll try to remember that. Oh, wait. I'm sure I'm older. ;-) Do I get a free pass?

Which is worse: hon, or dear?

flutter said...

My mom once got yelled at by another driver, "Nice signal, LADY!" and she took her cigarette out of her mouth long enough to yell back, "I'M NO LADY!"

Proudest moment ever.

What's with all the casual commentary? I was on a conference call with 4 collegues listening to some DUDE our to sell us somethin' swwwweeet! Calling our meeting planner short-form-name, short-form-name like it was a frickin frat house.

SHUT IT! doofus (sp?)

I'm with Flutter. "Sweetie" gets my panties in a wad every time.

I hate all the terms of endearment bandied about in such a way. I used to think "ma'am" was the worst. But I've grown into the term.

Manic Mommy said...

I've taken to 'Dude'-ing everyone. Don't know how it happened. I probably sound like an idiot.

Jill said...

I absolutely HATE being called "hun" be anyone. Nothing is less genuine and condescending, IMO...

Vanessa said...

Thank you for speaking on my behalf today.

blooot said...

Hate it too. Always have. Makes me want to smack the Hon-er in the side of the head with an open hand.

I have no issues or anything. Seriously.
