The fellow working Arby's drive-through called me some forgettable, generic thing when he took my order. Irked me slightly but not a lot. Then when he gave me my change, he called me "babe." "Babe?!" What the fuck? Argh!

I refer to my friends as "hon," "sweetie," and "dear." My friends. I have feared recently that I might lapse into calling strangers these potentially offensive things. Now I'm quite certain I won't. It was so awkward and unnatural to be called "babe" of all things. (That's way more offensive than "dear.") But I'm sure I'd never dear a total stranger. Definitely not. Maybe I'd sir/ma'am someone I don't know but never hon/sweetie/dear.
