I'm not your hon'. I don't even know your name. I can understand it a little when some woman in her 60s says it. but it absolutely drives me up a wall when some teenage kid at the drive through window says it.
Also when the wait staff calls my table "guys". As in "hi guys, what can I get you guys tonight".
I don't mind it if its the bar wench getting a round of brews at the local dive, but when I'm paying good money for food, I don't like being called "guys" like they are my best buddy and they're going to wander out to the kitchen to make me a baloney and american cheese sandwich with Miracle Whip on white bread.
