Nope, this isn’t gonna be a review or comment on either the old campy series or the 1998 movie Lost in Space though that phrase is often heard in my house followed by peals of laughter-it’s just hard not to burst out laughing at that cheesy line, but I digress.

No, what I want to make you aware of is Poison Prevention Week, March 15-22. Although it was originally created to raise awareness with parents with small children, vets are calling attention to the public for keeping pets safe as well.

Dear Service Providers: (aka doctors, nurses, receptionists, clerks, waiters, waitresses, etc.)

Unless you are my mother, grandmother, boyfriend, girlfriend, lover, spouse, or child, you should not be calling me or anyone else in a business situation “honey”.

The reason is that unless you are in one of the those relationshhips listed above and are entitled to use that term “honey”, you are using it in a derogatory manner.  It sounds like you are talking to a child not another adult or even more importantly a client.

If I were to address any female employee by the term “honey” it maight be consider disrespectful if not “sexual harassment” in the work place.

Because someone is in a less powerful position than you, it does not give you the right to call them “honey”.  That is, of course, unless your intent is to make yourself feel important.

In addition, the use of these terms is unprofessional.

Thank you for giving this your consideration, Dearie.
