On the Death of Common Courtesy

I called into customer care a few days ago, and promptly gave my first and last names. Now, I could only call my CCR by his first name, since that's all he gave me. One thing that gets me steamed, though, is being called by my first name by someone who has just begun interacting with me on a business level. Frickin' boor.

I get the "hon" a lot. From an elderly woman, or even a man of my Dad's generation, it's casual, done out of habit normally and meant with no harm. But if some fluffy haired VP of uselessness calls me hon, the badge is out within seconds.

Agreed, it's LONG gone... sigh...
