So there I was in my late 40s moving into my fifties accepting being called a "ma'am" The older I got the less it bothered me. I even chuckled at younger women would complain about being called "Ma'am" I would think to myself :just wait, someday it won't phase you".
Well the other day I got a new revaluation. Here I am nearing 60 and it has happened more than once but now I'm being called "dear" I was at the store the other day,m reaching for something when a much younger woman came up behind, "Here let me get you that dear" she said. Then a few days after that one of the store clerks said "How are you feeling dear?" Yes it is official I am now no longer Miss, Ms, Ma'am I am now "Dear". Yes I will accept this one too because with this one comes the fact that I don't have to explain any of it anymore. If I get into trouble "Oh that's okay dear we will just clean it all up" As I am being redirected with that maniacal look on my face, giggling in side like a schoolgirl!--
