Women. Does your boss ever call you “pet” or “treat” names that offends you?
Question by Love is Everything: Women. Does your boss ever call you “pet” or “treat” names that offends you?
I am a junior advertising copywriter from Detroit, and I am the only woman in my division. My boss is a nice guy but he treats me more like a girl-scout then like his other employees. He’s always calling me darling, sugar, honey, cupcake, angel, and sweetheart. He would never call the male employees that, and it wouldn’t be such a big deal if that was just like his personality. He never calls them tiger, or sport he calls them by their first names. Also he is closer to my age than you would think, its not some cutesy old guy thing.
Does this happen to anyone else? Should I be offended or flattered?
Answer by Holly
You should decide if you are offended, dont ask us if you should be.
Ive personally never had this situation happen to me, but I work in Government so everything is uber PC around here.
