I agree, which is another reason I enjoy going to Chick Fil-a and getting a response of My Pleasure.
Then again my wife HATES getting "mamed". or young lady. Absolutely hates it so much that I just smile and walk away, laughing inside.
Chic is always on point with proper etiquette.
I didn't know people dislike being called ma'am
. What's the deal with that? It's my go-to greeting for the non-medical staff in the hospital (sanitation, food service, etc.), nodding with a "sir" or "ma'am" when I pass. I try to make a point of showing respect to the people who tend to be overlooked in that environment, by acknowledging them with those terms. Age has zilch to do with that, which I'm guessing is her issue?
