Do I look like a "ma'am" to you?!?

I really hate being called "ma'am". Everyone I know does. And it's not cause it makes me feel old. I'm not old. I'm 21. And people tell me all the time I look like I'm 12. So why the hell are you calling me ma'am?!? 

The word really comes with a lot of negative connotation and I don't know why that is. But it's true. I don't personally know a single woman who gets offended when they head the word "ma'am".


  1. I hate it too. I also get told that i look like i'm 12 but i'm 21 too, so i totally understand *hugs*

  2. I hate it so hard.

    I think some people don't know that saying ma'am can be offensive because they don't really know the difference between Ma'am and Miss. I want to be called Miss damn it!!!
