If you've read my blog for a while, you know how much snow and winter bug me, but that's not the only thing.
I suppose I actually have lots of pet peeves but one in particular I want to ask about today. Is it just me or is it really annoying when you go into a store or a restaurant and the person waiting on you calls you either, honey, sweety, darling, or dear?
I work with several girls who call the customers hon all the time and another one calls everyone dear. Drives me up a wall.
Yes, I believe in being friendly when you're waiting on a customer but you can do it without using sappy sweet pet names. I guess I just don't see it as real professional.
So tell me what you think. Do you like having a stranger or someone you only know casually call you by those names? Do you use those names yourself?
