So anyhow the JesseU2 and Diamond story at the supermarket.

Jess and I were at Price Club recently.
Price Club is a large discont store/chain where you buy bulk food at a reasonable discounted price. Basically a no frills large warehouse operation.

So we're trudging along thru the aisles,picking up our various wares, bantering back and forth and I accidently refer to JesseU2 as "buddy". Jesse DOES NOT like this term of endearment. He has politely asked me to not call him that-in the past. Its a pet-peeve of HIS. But I accidently slipped..
and he ..(too be cont..)
**Customer here at work.

....and he gives me a wincing/flinching look clearly illustrating his displeasure of my utterance of the term -"buddy". I quickly apologize.

A little later, I dont know why I slip up again and call him buddy. Jesse deadpans at me and gets in my face and says-
"Whatever ya say DOOOOOOOOOODE!!"..w/a righteous cheeseball grin...

This was a little funny'
sort of,
BUT-

What did I really learn from this?


We all have terms or names that bug us.
Maybe w/should work hard at respecting each others boundries..
I dunno
Thoughts?

True enough Dimon, but we usually don't know what that is until it is too late and the person is already pissed by the time they tell us.

I for one don't think I have any names that get to me, but I used to.
(late)

I think ZEdge hit it on the head.

And take it forward.
