No, but I've never been addressed as "Mrs." because I'm not married, and if someone ever addresses me as a "Mr." I would definitely be offended (for obvious reasons).

Yeah, it makes me feel old.
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Tuesday 10/26/04 - 5:22:11 PM EST (GMT-5)
No.

Considering that I am only 18 and single,oh yes. I have been called Mrs. several times. And every time, a male teacher has been the one to call me that. It's so irritating.

no, cuz im a guy, so im thinking "damn right it's Mr."
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Thursday 10/28/04 - 3:55:11 PM EST (GMT-5)
Not at all, unless they called me MR.
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Thursday 10/28/04 - 3:56:54 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, because I don't get addressed as either.

I was just wondering because there are several people here that I have addressed as Mr so and so and a couple of them turned to me (including the CEO) and said NO it't Paul, or Mark, or Rick.

So they clearly do not like to be called Mr. ________.

Yes, I expect people to adress me as "Doctor"

Always a smart ass in the bunch. LOL!
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Friday 10/29/04 - 8:53:21 AM EST (GMT-5)
I am a Mrs and I liked to be called that. What I really, really hate is being called Ms.
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Friday 10/29/04 - 8:55:34 AM EST (GMT-5)
So it actually bothers you??? Most people call me miss or ms, or whatever.
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Friday 10/29/04 - 8:56:50 AM EST (GMT-5)
Of course!

"Hello Mr or Mrs Robinson"
"WHAT?! You cannot tell my GENDER?"

17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Friday 10/29/04 - 8:57:55 AM EST (GMT-5)
No I mean if you are a mr and mrs couple why would it offend you?
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Friday 10/29/04 - 9:02:09 AM EST (GMT-5)
That's what I was wondering morgue.
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Friday 10/29/04 - 9:54:59 AM EST (GMT-5)
It bothers me if people call me Ms or address letters to me as Ms. As far as I see it, Ms is an nothing type of title. It was invented as a form of protest and is an extremely vague title which is exactly what it invented for and I don't like it.

I don't mind.. I think it's pretty funny, actually.
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Tuesday 11/2/04 - 11:28:26 PM EST (GMT-5)

17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Tuesday 11/16/04 - 11:54:23 AM EST (GMT-5)

17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Thursday 11/18/04 - 9:50:49 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes. It makes me feel old.
