I'm really getting tired of going to restaurants in Morristown and being called sweetie, sugar, or honey by the waitresses. It might be one thing if these were diners with waitresses chomping on gum like they did at Mel's Diner in the old tv show Alice
, but these are places like Applebees
where the wait staff ought to know better than to be "too familiar" with the customers. Maybe I lived in Ohio too many years, but I just absolutely detest being called "sweetie" by a member of the same sex. A Google search
shows me that I'm not alone in feeling this way. I don't eat out that often, but if this keeps up, I'll sure be cooking at home more often!
