    Perhaps he should have said please? and called her Miss or Mam? No one likes being call honey by a stranger. Too familiar to just yell out “hon”? (??) She is a bartender right? Man or woman they take your order……..Too sensitive maybe? Someone explain please. Sometimes customers are rude, no one likes abuse be it verbal or otherwise…… :-i

    There are certain rules of etiquette that, regardless of sex, should not broken – especially when dealing with a bartender or a server. "Hey honey " or “Yo, sweetie” yelled at to gain attention, will often get you the type of attention you weren’t expecting.

    I worked as a bartender when I was a young man and I will tell you from experience, doing things like banging your glass on the bar, whistling or shouting is a guarantee that you’ll either receive negative attention or be ignored completely. I used to get rapidly very deaf, when confronted with loud, boorish customers, or get…like Mo’s intrepid bartender,….very snarky in a flat Yankee minute !

    I grew up in the American South, mostly rural. Men called anyone female who’s name they didn’t know (or couldn’t remember) hon or sweetie – also used for family members. Women called pretty much EVERYONE hon, honey, sweetie, etc., at one time or another. Most people didn’t even notice.

    Times change, people evolve, but some are still using the terms of their past – to their own detriment. I personally don’t care, your opinion of me is none of my business unless I happen to know you, but I never got into the habit of calling anyone over the age of 5 sweetie or honey or hon. People don’t like it these days, even in the South. You’d think people would notice this…

    In many parts of the country, waitresses of a certain age group famously call everyone “hon.” It doesn’t seem to bother too many people (though it was known to set Attila off on a rampage).

    I think it was on Seth Meyers recently, security video footage of a man who groped a waitress, and she promptly tackled him and put his sorry azz on the floor. He MIGHT not grope women after this………….

    The fact that Mo put on armor suggests shrapnel is going to be flying.

    I guess the bartender’s name is not “Hon,” then?

    I hope that suit is stain resistant.

    There used to be a mode called “common courtesy”. Pragmatically, it was treating everybody as a potential ally in the game of life. More romantically it was assuming everyone has the same level of self respect as you do and acknowledging that fact.

    For shame, he didn’t even say “please”. :)

    Why do I have the feeling she’s going to feed him the glass his bourbon will come in?
