I have some pet peeves I wanted to mention just one..... I HATE it when a salesperson calls me 'baby!' Isn't that a small human (I'm not!) that is cute, babbles and is hand fed? AT the very most it is a term of endearment for a loved one...i.e. younger child, sibling or spouse. It is not a customer that is obviously old enough (actually not, I just LOOK old enough) to be offered the free drink at Taco Bell for senior citizens. One of these days I'll take the time to complain at the store that it happens at...Maybe I could just make up cards to hand to the salesperson to politely decline being her baby... It really happens often; WalMart, Sam's, Kohl's, Joanne's and Albertson's are stores I remember being greeted as baby. Actually I think this is a southern thing. Let me know.. Do the salespeople in Canada call their customers baby? What about California? Idaho? Inquiring minds want to know.
