So my DH is in Georgia for work and he told me that the clerk at the hotel desk keeps calling him "baby". He told him it bugs him but he doesn't know what to say to her about it. I told him "welcome to my world, DH!". I get it all the time: Sweetie, baby, honey, hon, cutie, sweetheart, etc. Mainly by men, but also by women. Now DH realizes how much it sucks to be called by stupid pet names. Oh, and "me too" with the "Smile!" comments. I can smile or not; it's not up to you.
