Depends on where it is and if it's done in a patronizing manner!

It's gotta be 'young lady' I tell them that didn't fit for 25 years.

. .lately? It's not the worst thing in the world, but I'm being called "young lady" more and more often - just to remind me that I'm looking older. Sweetie is a common one, heard in restaurants both north and south.

Honeybun was the latest, new name I was called, by a grocery checker! Is it condescending, patronizing, "respectful?" the new "polite?"

If I could, I'd like to be addressed with no acknowledgment that I'm old.
