There are some 'pet' names and phrases that some guys use on us that sounds outrightly degrading and even insulting without their know it. I presume they actually think they make us feel good by using these silly expressions.
For me, I can't stand a male colleague addressing me as
1. My dear
5. Fine girl and so on. Of the five I have mentioned above, the two that I totally detest most are: 'My Dear and 'Fine Girl'
I totally hate to be addressed that way.
Another annoying scenero is when I meet a guy and he says 'What is that your beautiful (pronounced as beauriful) name' Gosh! I can't stand that!.
