Not cuteposted December 17th, 2021 at 9:56 AM As an old lady, I can’t stand being called “young” lady. I know you’re trying to be nice, but I really can’t stand it.

Kirk CameronDec 17, 2021 at 2:52pmCurmudgeon by name and curmudgeon by nature? YupDec 17, 2021 at 2:53pmIt's patronizing in every way. AnonymousDec 17, 2021 at 5:58pmDeal with it. I will always use it Worse isDec 17, 2021 at 7:06pmWhen a middle-aged male clerk calls me Sweet heart or My dear. (I'm a middle aged woman). I'm not your dear. DefinitelyDec 17, 2021 at 11:00pmSimilarly I find it ridiculous when some young guy tries flattery when I’m clearly old enough to be his grandmother. As if I don’t know what he’s doing lol. Just be respectful and we’ll get along just fine. I don’t need to be patronized. You Poor ThingDec 18, 2021 at 12:33amListen here, young lady, you probably look like the kind of Karen who needs someone to model kindness. Absorb it and pass it on."Boo hoo, someone tried to make me smile today. I feel so offended." Get off the cross. We need the wood to build a bridge so you can get over yourself. Same, and it just started again.Dec 18, 2021 at 8:51amI like the friend who has been using this term with me, and he thinks he's being affectionate, but actually I recoil when I hear it applied to me, and I'm going to have to mention it. I'm an adult woman, older. It's like being reduced somehow. Kinda oppositeDec 18, 2021 at 8:58amI hate being called "Ma'am". I'm not a ma'am", I'm a "Miss". If you want to be politically correct, you can say Ms, but if there's no ring on a woman's finger you can reasonably call her Miss.Sure, a few don't wear their ring for whatever reason, but they're not going to bite your head off for calling them Miss.
