It dawned on me recently that no one calls me "miss" anymore! When did I stop being a "miss" and start being a "ma'am"? I answer a bulk of the rental calls at the office, and I am being called "ma'am" by most of the people calling in. Personally, I hate and cannot stand being called "ma'am" because it makes me feel ancient! It makes me feel like I should be a mean old lady to those people ~ well, not really ~ as I won't snap at the people who say it. But it is a bit aggravating.
Sure you may argue with me and say its just people being polite. Not. I don't find that polite! That's an insult! An insult to me...call me silly but that's how I feel
For Christ sake, I am twenty nine years old. Does that not qualify as a "miss". I'll even take "lady" or "bitch" but "Ma'am"! But here's the thing: At what age do you go from being a Miss to being a Ma'am? Isn't that what you call someone their sixties? I would refer to a woman as "ma'am" if they were blocking me with their shopping cart full of arthritis medicine, Depends, Caltrate, and V-8 Juice. A "Ma'am" is like your old Aunt who wears straw hats and sunglass shields over her glasses. They're your female relative who still dresses, 30 years later, like they did when they were a Rolling Stones fan in high school! Frick, am I considered a "ma'am" now because I sound or look old?
"Hello, Ma'am, how are you doing? I'm calling in regards to the rental advertisement in the paper....blah...blah...blah
"Hello, Miss, how are you doing? I'm calling in regards to the rental advertisement in the paper...blah...blah...blah
Doesn't the "Miss" just sound better? I am a miss.

"So you want to know me? Romantic and logical ~ Loyal and always true ~ Funloving crazy and very quiet when needed ~
Sensible and down to earth...to sum it up, I guess I'm pretty much a "nice girl", hopefully in a good way, who's also a bit of a geek"
