    when shopping one of my pet peeves is to be called pet names by a stranger behind the checkout counter. I am always saying you don't know me well enough to call me pet names. I am not your Dear your Sweetheart or your Honey.

    So when talking to my DH I usually say Dear or occasionally honey ---No now keep it clean!!! LOL

    When I hung up talking to my youngest son just now I realized I call him dear at times. He was saying he doesn't know where his 7 yr old twins are at the moment! LOL They are the ones that just had the baby,. And I replied Well Dear be happy you have family to take care of them for you!

    So I was thinking he is the only one I call Dear. don't know why. I don't call his brother dear I don't think. I know I don't use pet names with Sara. Mayby Dear once in a while but not very often.

    When I was little my mom called me ladybug and I used that with Sara. My grandpa always called me punky as he had nicknames for everyone!

    My great granddaughter Adrianna they all call her Bug!!

    So what do you call your loved ones? Pet names or nicknames?

    I had an aunt who used to call me sweetie and I absolutely hated her calling me that!!

    My youngest is named after his dad and he is called Little Glen by me and some family members or GW his initials. I still occasionally shorten it to GDub.

    I'm just curious what do you do?

    I used to call my husband, "Bubble," short for bubble-butt. Don't know why. Haven't called him that in forEver. But his brother will ask me, "so what's your Bubble up to?" hahaha... My own nickname growing up started off as Coalie-Nini. Eventually my immediate family shortened it to Nini, or Neen; my uncles & aunts shortened it to Coalie. My friends at school called me, "Reb." My father was born Chuck, but everyone called him Henry or HenBoy. My father & his brothers called my mother, "yay-yay." My younger sister, Catherine, was called, "Geendi," while my youngest sis was, "bug." My own children & grandchildren do not have nicknames. I affectionately call my son, "boyo," and my daughter, "GinaBelle," but don't consider those nicknames, just 'love you's.'

    Granddaughter Kaelyn is called Smooch by her daddy and grandpa, I always called her my Special angel. Her brother is Snuggle Bug by me, but I guess that will have to stop as he is now 18! Granddaughter Sydney is called Sunshine, Sugar, Sweetie, Sugar Pie and her little brother is called Rocko by Grabndpa. I call him my Buddy, or little stinker! I am Clem to hubby, and he is Fig to everyone but me. I find I use the term Hon a lot when talking to my children or nieces. The nieces and nephews call my daughter Linda, Didi. And hubby calls most of the guys Bud.

    Working in the service industry as a teen, we loved to call people by terms of endearment. It was fun to see who liked it and who hated it. Men thought it was a green light for sex and some women went ballistic. Good times.

    Working at a restaurant, endearments were considered flair. You'll get better tips if you call everyone honey, etc. I personally hate it. Unless the waitress is in her 70's and has a beehive. Then I adore it.

    Pookie is the generic term in my family. Also ancient gods but those are assigned to individuals. Once you get a god, it's yours for life.

    I call my hubby 'Hunny' as he reminds me of pooh bear, you know round around the middle and talks alot lol.

    I call my son Mr Magoo.....not sure why, just do. My dogs names is Zeus, but I call him knuckle head....because he has got a big solid head, a term of love really!!

    I call one of my cats (Smudge) fat cat, becasue she is, and hte other cat (Harley) I call Little Boys....dotn ask me why the plural, I have no idea! He is only a small slight cat.

    When I want to get my mums attection I yell out MA!!! She hates it, so responds lol. Most kids I meet that know me call me Fruitbat...as that was my scout leader name and it has kind of stuck.

    I see pet names used by cashiers as offensive and disrespectful. I want to be treated like the adult I am and not like a pet or child.
