Just a place for me to write down some thoughts and maybe get some feedback... maybe not.
Dontcha just hate that brutal lurch back to reality ... (sigh).
Well, that was just wrong of him.
He probably thought you were 19 and was trying to flatter you.
Yes, the word "ma'am" is definitely a four letter word. *sigh*
oooh... if i'm ever on "Inside the Actors Studio" (not likely) and get asked about the word I hate... that just might be it!
Yeah, I'm with ppb...he was trying to accord you dignity in advance of your tender years!It just doesn't happen here, in any circumstances (except, maybe, for sales assistants in old fashioned department stores!)
See, I always thought that ma'am was just a form of respect to an adult, no matter what the age.
Just being Southern.We call everyone over 80 "girl" and say "m'am" to toddlers.Go figure.
I was first ma'amed at a grocery store when I was hmm probably about 19.....wasn't really sure how to take that...I was still technically a teenager!
