Why is is that so many waitresses feel the need to call their customers “Hun” or “Sweetie”? It’s not even just waitresses, really. It’s other positions in the service industry, too. I’m not stereotyping and saying that all females in the service industry have the ridiculous habit. It’s just not too often you see men calling someone “Hun” or “Sweetie” without the woman getting PO’d and filing a sexual harassment suit against him. I know they’re just trying to be nice but c’mon. You can be curtious and professional without crossing the “Hun” or “Sweetie” line.
In case you’re wondering, a waitress called me “Hun” during lunch today. I felt like shouting “I’m not your damn Hun,” followed by the above monologue but I figured it would be wasted and just go over her head. Besides, I didn’t really want to make her have a bad day because just because I was irritated over something she finds completely harmless. Instead, I didn’t tip & told Adam I’d blog about it.
