And so the great hen debate rolls on.
Now i would imagine most on here couldnt
give a donald duck about how we address lassies
in scotland.
But this shall be the last from me and my use
of fowl expressions.
There is one huge massive point you are missing
regarding this use of the word hen.
In scotland we speak SCOTS english. We have our
own dictionary. The dictionary of the scots language.
http://www.dsl.ac.uk/dsl/

And from collins concise dictionary.
Definitions
noun
(Scottish, dialect) a term of address (often affectionate), used to women and girls
http://www.collinsdictionary.com/dictionary/english/hen

So when the poster was called hen the other day it was in fact
just someone being nice.

And poor kate getting called a hen.
t's not often that royals and commoners alight on a cultural trend at the same time,
but in the case of the hen do, that could be the case
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-12698361

Just to show we have a seperate identity although we
are intertwined with the rest of the uk
http://www.rampantscotland.com/features.htm

And finally for anyone who does not believe we have
our own way of talking i offer this.
http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Appendix%3AGlossary_of_Scottish_slang_and_jargon

It's a braw, bricht, moonlicht nicht the nicht (take my word for it)

Haha - I hear a why-did-the-chicken-cross-the-road joke in there.

Edit: That Scottish glossary is cool communication beans - thx Vlad. Gimme the rest of this thread, I'm off for a Turkish!

I think it depends on the endearment, as well as where you are from. "Sweetie" is used in the south almost as much as ma'am. Personally, I tend to feel the term babe is for people you are evolved with.

I hate it and can't stand it. My ex used to do it. She used to call me, Honey. I would rather be called by my name, because that is my name.

(HS) I don't mind most of those terms, however, I don't like to be referred to as "Cupcake". That term is almost always meant to be derogatory---and is usually uttered by some jealous shrew, and not a man.


One day not too long ago, my son and I were in the car with my mother, when he started bragging about how he can bench-press more than me (he outweighs me by at least 30 lbs., he's about 2 inches taller than me, and he's 20 to my more-than-20... but enough quibbling...). So anyway, he says, "That's why I'm a BeefCake, and you're a BeefCupCake." I guess he's just getting me back for the tinfoil bunny turds remark...

Meh...I'm lukewarm on it. Depends on the situation. Sometimes I do think it's a term of endearment. Sometimes I think it's just habit. Sometimes I think it's cause they can't keep all the names straight and do it just to be on the safe side.

But I worked in a grocery store where my name was evidently "hey", sooo.....

Well some people have right awkward names and it could be a tad longwinded to
address them by.

I mean take the queen as an example. So she is struggling away with a heavy parcel
and trying to control the corgis and a bit chicken for her tea has just fell out her
shopping bag. So you could say 'you wantin a hand hen?' Or 'here madge ill grab
that you get the corgis' but if she got offended like some on here would and insisted
on being addressed proper like it would be

'Can a gie yi a hand wi that Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God, of the United Kingdom of
Great Britain and Northern Ireland, and of her other Realms and Territories Queen,
Head of the Commonwealth, Defender of the Faith.'?

Tough choice that is like.

Messages this short etc, so heres a joke for yous (and its your own fault for the messages this short thing)

DOG FOR SALE
A man sees a sign outside a house -'Talking Dog For Sale.' He rings the bell, the owner appears and tells him the dog can be viewed in the back garden.

The man sees a very nice looking Labrador Retriever sitting there.

"Do you really talk?" he asks the dog.

"Yes," the Labrador replies.

After recovering from the shock of hearing the dog talk, the man asks, "So, tell me your story."

The Labrador looks up and says, "Well, I discovered that I could talk when I was pretty young. I wanted to help the government, so I was sold to the SAS. In no time at all they had me jetting from country to country, sitting in rooms with spies and world leaders, because no one imagined that a dog would be eavesdropping. I was one of their most valuable spies for eight years".

"But the jetting around really tired me out, and I knew I wasn't getting any younger so I decided to settle down. I signed up for a job at Heathrow Airport to do some undercover security work, wandering near suspicious characters and listening in. I uncovered some incredible dealings and was awarded several medals".

"Then I got married, had a few puppies, and now I've just retired."

The man is amazed. He goes back into the house and asks the owner how much he wants for the dog.

"Ten quid," the owner says.

"£10! But your dog is absolutely amazing! Why on earth are you selling him so cheaply?"

"Because he's a lying **stard, he's never been out of the garden."

I can see why. We never used the term, "bunny turds" in our household.

My parents always referred to them as "rabbit pellets", which doesn't sound quite so bad to a little kid.

(procolharem) Hmmm...people get weirded out by the most ridiculous things.
"I hate being called sweetie". Seriously?


I know, right? If the choice was between being called "sweetie", or, say, being knifed in the kidneys, sign me up for the pet-name any day...

Especially from people you barely know.

I think they do this because they don't know who or what their saying to whom!

"I get that a lot of women don't want to be called honey or sweetie or such, but some don't like ma am either. "

So, let me get this straight? You know that a lot of women don't like it, but you choose to do it anyway. Is that correct?

"Well you know what, MA AM you just need to calm down !"

Calm down after you have admitted to knowing you are being disrespectful?
Imo, it is you who need to calm down.

"Or you can just wear a name tag. "

So it is the responsibility of women to wear name tags at all times, because you will behave in a disrespectful way unless a women wears a name tag to remind you to be respectful.

"I'm native American so I'm going with Poke A hot ass the Indian princess ."

I guess it is difficult to live as a man who is respectful towards other people. Talk about over reacting.

Ma am is considered a greeting of respect in most of the civilized world, just not your world it seems. If I don't know your name ,and it isn't proper to use it anyway ( unless you have on a name tag on) and we agree Honey or baby is not proper so what the h3ll else do you want to be called if you don't like my choice .(Poke A hot ass) Inquiring minds would like to know.
So ladies if you have a preference I think we all would like to know.
