Dear Mr. Chinese Restaurant Man

I like the message on your chopsticks-"Welcome to Chinese Restaurant-Please try your nice chinese Food with Chopsticks the traditional and typical of Chinese glorious history and cultural."
This message makes me smile. I like your friendly service. I like your food, it tastes yummy. There is one thing I don't really like though...its when you call me "honey"...7 times during a 2 minute conversation while I take my food to go. Your philogynistic familiarisms are, well...too familiar. My husband doesn't call me "honey" unless I'm in trouble. And even then, he normally uses "sweetheart". Please reserve the use of the word "Honey" for descriptions of your scrumptious deep fat fried, sticky-sweet, morsels of chicken.
Thank you!-your friend "MynameisnotHoney"

Is Chinese food on the Fit For Service diet? Excellent!

haha! It is if you stay away from the sticky--sweet deep-fat-fried Honey chicken...which, actually, I did stay away from. I had myself a nice green salad with marinated mushrooms, 2 grilled chicken skewers and a few peices of tempura veggies.( yea,those are actually fried..but they are so good!)

Hahaha, maybe that is the only endearing word he learned in English?

Jillene said...

I HATE that!! I also hate to be called mam--BLAH!!

*MARY* said...

My kids call me honey more than they call me mom, it's kinda weird.

So said...

That would bother me as well, honey.

Erin said...

Yeah, people who call you honey without your permission should be shot.

I'm sorry about your friend's business. I think Cold Stone is ridiculously priced. I bet if your friend moved to Cedar City, they would be the hit of the town and he would make millions! (Especially since there is nowhere like that in town.)

So, it's too bad that our emails wouldn't work. That Beaver whistle sounds hilarious!

Anyone serving me orange chicken and lo mein can call me whatever the heck they want.

My word verification is "wordspro." Are they rating commenters, now? Glad I fared well.

Nobody You Know said...

Listen sweetie pie, I totally understand what you're saying.

Vanessa said...

Totally a pet peeve of mine too! There is a lady that does that at the gas station I go to to get my daily DC. I want to scream when she calls me "Hon"!
