I’m not sure if I’m really getting old or what, not that 48 is old mind you. I have noticed a trend of late, but maybe it has been around for much longer. I might not have noticed until that is, it happened to me. Like all things in life.
Let me first start off by saying that I hate been called hon by anybody. In particular the younger population. I know you might find this a bit odd, but nobody younger than me should refer to me as hon. Sorry but that’s just the way it is.
Nick and I went out to dinner and this waitress was sucking up to him because; of course. he’s a man and he’s paying, right? Wrong. I always pay. I told Nick half laughing and half not, “She has no idea what biscuit she is trying to butter up.” She insisted in calling me hon every time she came to our table, and I resisted the urge to rip her limb from limb. I must confess it was almost a losing battle. Nick had to listen to me vent about the whole “hon’ thing the entire meal.
I went shopping at a store in the mall that caters to younger people just the other day, to buy book slag. Again this barely aged girl called me hon repeatedly. Do they teach stupid these days? I would have just left right then had I not wanted something they had for sale. It should be noted that I didn’t say anything in that store.
Never for any reason call anyone hon, it’s even more disrespectful coming from a younger person to an older one. I’m not a ninety-year old granny, and even if I was, the only people that would be allowed to call me hon is, nobody.
Please drop a comment by because I just would like to know if I’m the only person on the planet that feels this way.
