    I recently walked in to a shop, the young male assistant called me dude, I am a 48 year old and did not appreciate it. So I turned round and walked out!

    One lost sale!

    I also don't like someone I don't no calling me mate.

    Then I am a grumpy old man!

    it will almost always be an older lady that says it..it is a term of endearment...better than many in my experience

    I think it depends on who is saying the words.

    Babes, sweetheart, darling etc are gross when said by some leering, drunk chav.

    But when it's said by someone you love it's all okay :) x

    Much agree!

    I was once on a music course thing years ago, and we had to share dorms with other people. I was put in a double dorm with some girl who was nice enough, I suppose, but we were incredibally unalike! But she literally drove me up the wall because every sentance she said ended with the word "Chicken". Not "Chick", but "Chicken"!

    "Alright Chicken?" "What are you doing today, Chicken?" "Coming to the gardens, Chicken?"

    Even worse, was that she liked to talk. Even in the middle of the night...

    "You awake, Chicken?" - I bloody well am now! Grrrr!

    But that was the only word/name that really annoyed me.

    I call most my female friends chicken?!!?? (or sometime chicken-wing) but it's done with love lol Don't like being called 'bruv' though :)

    I generally don't care - as long as the sentiment is right and the person is generally well meaning.

    I hate being called baby though - only WandA can call me that.

    There are some great contenders for the most annoying informal names in the last three pages but may I present you with the king of the annoying familiarisations... Mucker....  hate it hate it hate it...and by default I hate immediately anyone who calls me by the name!

    There's a Newcastle lady at the stables who often calls me Flower or Flowerpot - anyone else come across this? Personally, if I know a person quite well I'm not that fussed what I'm called, so long as it's not Gill! For no particular reason, it really rubs me up the wrong way. My friends call me it to deliberately wind me up haha...

    There's nowt wrong with a tab!

    And AA, pedantically, where you are, a lot of people wouldn't necessarily ID as Geordie, but as Northumbrians. I know I see myself as a mix of the two (Born Newcastle, raised in Northumberland my entire life, then moved to Sunderland... so I'm hated no matter what I am :P)

    And as a former cam girl, my biggest bugbear is "bb" meaning "baby". Normally said "show tits bb". Do one.

    I get called 'love' alot in my job so I don't mind that one now. I tend to agree that things like babe and hun are just weird when said by someone you don't know. 

    Being a scouser the ones that get annoying for me are lad and laaa e.g "You comin to watch the game lad?" "Na laa". I hate when a lad calls me his bird. Unless I'm taking the piss out of people who speak like that, he'd be lucky if I spoke to him for the rest of the day if he called me his bird.

    What I really hate is when someone adds Y inside my name - actually in my current job they've written it like that everywhere and didn't want to change it (even though I objected in the very beginning) because it would be too much work. 

    And in international standards my name is without Y, also it is a very popular one - adding Y and people start wondering if it is a different name and start reading it in very peculiar ways.  What is more - it is written without Y in all my official documents - so it was illogical to me that anyone will write it with Y (even though according to Bulgarian transliteration for official documents it should be with Y - however, I made the effort to request it written without it.) And still from the person that did that awful thing with my name I heard: "You should have said earlier if you have special requests" - hello?! wtf? And silly me thought the name should be written everywhere as it is in the official documents.
