When a straight guy calls you ma'am

As in "Thanks ma'am". And you're not a woman, transgender, etc.

I can feel my face go white hot with anger, but I'm a shop clerk and can't lose this job.

P.S. they smile and act like they just said 'man' but you know the difference.

That's a new one for me; I've never heard of anyone being called ma'am in person. When I was younger, (13 or so) it would happen all the time.

Reply "you're very welcome, Miss."

He'll never say that to another man again.

by GWMreply 1009/03/2013

I wish Pollyanna Prisspot,School Ma`rm weighed in...

by GWMreply 1109/03/2013

[bold]THANKS, MISS[/bold]-ter

by GWMreply 1309/03/2013

Couldn't you just say, "You're welcome, Miss."

by GWMreply 1409/03/2013

This has never happened to me, but R14 has the obvious reply.

by GWMreply 1509/03/2013

OP is Mr Humphries.

I only become annoyed when slang terms for body parts are mixed up. Everyone knows a girl has a boohoo which is her vagina. Gay guys who like their attention from the rear have an hehoo, slang for a butt that accepts two way traffic. When a guy refers to my boohoo, I go ballistic and ram his nose in my hehoo to make sure he knows the difference. I know I shouldn't get all dramatic and madam butterfly on him, but someones got to educate these toddlers.

by GWMreply 1809/03/2013

That has never happened to me, and I can't imagine it. Why would that happen?

by GWMreply 2009/03/2013

We have day-long seminars every year at Michfest on this very subject. They are very popular and well attended by the "guys."

by GWMreply 2109/03/2013

OP do you look like Pat?

by GWMreply 2309/03/2013

OP, you sound paranoid. You should do something about that.

by GWMreply 2409/03/2013

OP, either he

1. Is a homophobe and thought/knew you were gay 2. He simply made a mistake. I have accidentally called women Mr. and men Mrs-- no agenda at all.

by GWMreply 2509/03/2013

I always respond with, you wish.

by GWMreply 2609/03/2013

A very few times one of the dumb cunts where I used to work would say something like "Hi, ladies" when I was also present. My response is usually "Hi, sir." Or else I'll question their vision. The offensive cow then feigns perplexed innocence.

Just last week one made a remark about "fruitflies" with a smirky tone. I let it slide since I have to work closely with her. Funny thing is, she seems like a big dyke.

by GWMreply 2709/03/2013

I'd say you're welcome miss with a big wink and smile. Only if I was absolutely certain he called me ma'am, and not man.

by GWMreply 3009/03/2013

No, I look like a guy (goatee, etc.) but I do have gayvoice.

by GWMreply 3109/03/2013

Damn, I am so so so conditioned to use "ma'am" as a term of respect, and I'm an educator who works with a lot of females, so I KNOW I sometimes let this slip when I'm not thinking, even when I'm talking to the butchest men. It's awful. I always want to go back and retract it, but that would make it even worse.

When I was in a relationship, I was so conditioned to say "I love you", I once said it (not thinking AT ALL) to the customer service rep from my credit card company on the phone. I just hung the fuck up and proceeded to agonize.

by GWMreply 3209/03/2013

Maybe it's the caftan?

by GWMreply 3409/03/2013

{quote]that`s what gays get for all this identification with female gender when adressing themselves

Why are you addressing this to gay's in general. It's a minor subset of gay people who do this. Don't stereotype.

by GWMreply 3509/03/2013

Ma'am I quite frankly don't give a damn!

by GWMreply 3609/03/2013

Excuse me miss, but with all due respect, I have problems of my own.

by GWMreply 3709/03/2013

Damn, I wish there was a preview post feature on Datalounge.

by GWMreply 3809/03/2013

I have been slipping and calling my colleagues "toots." Embarrassing.

by GWMreply 3909/03/2013

Next time someone does it, OP if I were you I'd cut him.

by GWMreply 4009/04/2013

OP, are you Jamie McMurray?

by GWMreply 4209/04/2013

Op, that is a horrible situation to be put in, and no adult should be there in the first place. However, it's best for YOU, to just let it go, rise above it, take the high road, and ignore small-minded idiots like this guy. He's probably every unhappy in his pathetic little life, or else he's a closet case.

by GWMreply 4309/04/2013

OP = Ross Mathews

by GWMreply 4409/04/2013

I have a tenor voice to begin with. And I was raised in a house of women.

What I don't understand is these straight guys hear this voice all the time with their women. But when it comes out of a man it needs to be ridiculed.

by GWMreply 4509/04/2013

THIS was found on OP's Ipod...

by GWMreply 4609/04/2013

I always say "still trying to pass those three dollars bills, huh?"

by GWMreply 4709/04/2013

OP was the guy with another guy, a group of guys, or by himself? If he was by himself, he said man and you misheard. Straight guys only do that kind of stuff when they with others.

by GWMreply 4809/04/2013

Oddly, I am reading this thread while on hold with someone who just called me Ma'am not 30 seconds ago!


by GWMreply 5009/04/2013

Hang up on the bitch.

by GWMreply 5109/04/2013

[quote]Why do certain gays reject masculinity? Why must they femme-up to prove something? I find it annoying, ma'am.

Maybe they're not trying to prove anything. Just being themselves.

by GWMreply 5309/04/2013

Why do some gay guys reject masculinity.....

Because it is ok to do so. Masculinity may suit some guys (and some women) but it's merely a construct. Possibly a place for those who feel threatened to retreat to. But not an obligation.

by GWMreply 5409/04/2013

You should have interrupted him to do price check on TAMPONS over the loud speaker and pointed at him.
