NOT MR. ED



What is it with people calling me or my Father Mr. then our first names?


I have at least a dozen customers who call both of us Mr. First Name. I unfortunately have the dubious privilege of being called "Mr. Ed"....



I've asked people to call me Ed, what do I have to do? Show them that I wear rubber soled shoes not metal horseshoes? Prove that someone isn't shocking my testicles to make me talk? Add and subtract without stamping my hooves?


And for that matter....if you are working for me....don't call me honey, sweetheart, darling, sweety...or any other "pet name".

I am your employer, not your boyfriend, your lover, your husband or anything. This particular woman who makes me grind my teeth everytime she asks me something is at least ten years my junior and working with her husband (who does not seem pleased with her pet names).

"Mr. Ed, honey...could you do me a favor sweety?"

"Hey Darling, do you have a starter for an '89 Yugo? I thought I'd ask you Mr. Ed since you have lots of parts here sweety."

Isn't Mr. Ed this old series from America with the speaking horse where they have put a carrot into his.... to make his mouth moving?

Or do you mean this hairy relative from the Addams Family?

Was it a carrot in the knot or electricity to his berries?

Nothing that sinister - they just fed him apple slices.

And the hairy relative was Cousin Itt. He(?) insisted on the two "t"s.

The "honey, sweety" thing seems to be a southern US colloquialism, along with the honorific + first name thing. Don't understand it myself, but it seems durn near universal in certain circles.
