5 Nicknames Hudson Valley Residents Hate Being Called
From sweety to bro, is there a nickname you can stand being called?
Most days we all have interactions with people that we don't know personally and sometimes those interactions can lead to one person calling the other a name they hate.
Stop Calling me BOSS!
I was in Newburgh the other night and happened to stop into one of the convenience stores on Route 9W and after leaving the store I realized that there is a nickname that drives me NUTS!
First, this is in no way a slight towards the younger guy that was working at the store...LOL...but when I walked into the store he greeted me with, "how's it going boss?" Great I said, as I got done I went to check out and he asked: "did you find everything boss?" I sure did, I replied. He proceed to ring everything up and said, "$13.85 boss!"
I gave him a twenty and he counted to the change and said boss a few more times. In total, I think he called me boss at least 10 times!!
When I got my car I realized that I hate being called BOSS! Am I alone, does anyone else hate the nickname boss? Do you have a nickname that makes you cringe when someone says it to you?
