This is so true!!! Especially in Colorado. I call people by pet names, I'm southern and it's a habit. I call people baby, sweetie, darlin, honey, sugar baby, ect. If I don't know your name that's what I'm gonna call ya. And no I ain't flirting with you.
This is my favorite saying of all time...You can even make calling a baby ugly sound nicer! Check it out: "That is one ugly baby, bless it's heart". OR "You are the laziest person I know, bless your heart". See! ;) LOL!!!
