daily vent take three...

Preston doesn't call me anything, I'm lucky to get 10 words out of the guy once he gets home from work. But "pet names" for me are definitely not something he has a list of and uses. Come to think of it, how does he even get my attention???

That being said, if my HUSBAND doesn't even call me honey, what makes people think that I want them to call me honey? Especially when it is a younger person than me who is a waitress at a restaurant or a store clerk at the mall?

I went into Motherhood Maternity the other day - and mind you, I'm the size of a HOUSE. I was looking for something that would fit me and the clerk took it upon herself to escort me around the store and tell me what would look cute on me. Ok, first of all NOTHING looks cute on me right now and second, all the clothes she was picking out were ghastly! And as if having a personal shopper from hell wasn't bad enough, she kept on calling me 'honey'.

Is this a pregnancy thing or does it bother anyone else when random people call you honey?

No worries honey - it's almost over!

Really? He doesn't call you honey? What about "wife". LOL. That's what Ryan calls me when I don't respond right away...."WIFE!".

No, I think you are totally normal. I can't stand when random people say ma'am, but I much prefer that over honey.

Oh my GOSH! This is one of my biggest PET PEEVES! I was actually about to post this on my blog. There is a lady at my work that ALWAYS calls me honey or sweetie. I swear one day I am going to wink at her and say “any time "lover"! Just to see what she does. I hate IT with a passion, why the heck would you call someone that, especially when you don't know them from Adam. Next time it happens to you, you should say "I don't think you should call me honey, especially since you don't know if could actually relate to the name. Now maybe "bitchy" would work.” And see if they get the clue and back off.
