Is there a problem with the title ma'am, mis'am?
Nope. But as other female posters noted, it's young(er) women tend to get called Miss. I've always looked young, and being "Miss"ed and "Honey"ed and "Sweetheart"ed annoyed me to no end…until that stopped pretty much entirely and I seemed to be living fully in ma'am land. Gravitas is great, but so is Miss, now that I'm on the north side of 50.

Random useless fact.

The owner of the mexican restaurant I go to all the time calls all women "Lady." Now that he knows me, he calls me "Lady Jenny." It's kind of cute, actually Big Grin

The guy at the Starbucks calls everyone Miss (regardless of age). He always racks up the tips Tongue

I get called "Sweetheart" a lot. Unless, you're my boyfriend, don't. Just don't.

Hmm.

I've never really got the hang of sweetheart and darling and the like... I think if I ever used them it'd sound forced... Mind you, I'd sweetheart Jenny or Nurse or any of a number of the hot young ladies of TTA if I thought it'd get me anywhere Tongue Feckin' Atlantic ocean.
