@Meowkers: interesting fact, if they were southern it just means they are showing you respect they say it to everyone, it freaked me out too lol
also my SO is from texas i recall one of our 1st agurments where he said yes ma `am i think he was being sarcastic and got really pissed lol turns out he says that when he is taking me very seriously to let me know he is fully listening lol
so it could totally be an area thing where that person was from they say ma`am and sir to everyone all ages

@Meowkers: Ok, first of all, you are very pretty. Second of all, when people call me ma’am, I actually shudder inside. It’s like a slap. I hate it so much. I can relate. Who the hell told these people to call people ma’am. Horrible!

I’m 25 And I’ve Been Ma’med Countless Times And I’m in MN. Think They Are Just Being Polite.

Man, I LOVE being ma’amed. I think it’s way more polite and respectful than ‘miss’ which really rubs me the wrong way. I’m from NY, too. Maybe that’s why I moved to the South. 🙂

@pinkgreenandyellow: +1. Seriously, why look so hard for an extra way to be offended? I would say the majority of the country uses it without any age in mind and to be polite, so maybe adapt to the ways of nicer people instead of people who supposedly use it to say “you look old.”

@WeddingPea: I guess so! I didn’t really know it bothered people, I always thought that was just how you addressed adult women to be polite (and I grew up in a big city in california)
