Ruminations of the Easily Amused for 6/20/2013- Don't Call Me *Honey* Edition

  • A local doctor called the house to talk to my better half re an ad in the newspaper (not my ad, I have nothing to do with that ad). As long as he called, while taking a message, I asked him about a couple of things I was wondering about, and the conversation turned into a vigorous discussion of the hospital. We didn't agree about a number of things, which is fine, but he called me "honey" about 3/4 of the way into the call. I was taken aback the first time he did it, because it's so familiar and I have never even met the man. The second time he did it, I said "Don't call me Honey". I wonder if he calls his female patients *honey*. Maybe some of those ladies like that, but I've always thought addressing women that way was not only too familiar but patronizing and condescending. . No idea how old this man is but maybe he's a creaking old guy who is still living in Mad Men days or he's a young guy who feels the need to power up by demeaning others. Either way, listen up, we're in 2013 and maybe he should find another way to try to win arguments, like, um, using logic and facts. Update: in August of last year (2014), the doctor came up to me at a govt meeting and apologized.
