miss or ma'am, that is the question....

 

When did I become a “Ma’am”?

You never realize how time can fly,
And for women, it’s just two words.
It’s hard to explain how time can change names
So I won’t even try.

 But can someone please tell me this
 When does Miss end and Ma’am begin?

I was a Miss for the longest time, even after I wed.
But as time went by, the word Miss faded away
I was now starting to be called a Ma’am,
and the term “Miss” was pure passé.

I started college rather late in life.
The students were mostly teens.. 
To me that was no bother.
Until one day a student stopped me and said:
“Ma’am, aren’t you LeAnne’s mother?”

Went to a restaurant with my husband to eat.
Noticed the prices were a little low.
 Asked the waitress about it, and she replied
“Ma’am, that’s the senior citizen’s rate”

When did I become a “Ma’am”?

Now this poem is funny -- probably because something like this happened to my Vince and I -- out doing some volunteer work, we stopped for a quick cup of coffee at McDonalds. When I came back from the powder room, Vince was sitting in a booth pondering the receipt -- only to learn he had the senior rate! Still hasn't gotten over it! Susan

I guess it could be worse... I would hope that it is all a sign of respect.

LOL It's better than being called "Grandma"; my twin sister kiddlingly calls me "grandma" when I'm getting in or out of a vehicle, on account of I'm so slow (arthritis does that to a person, you know, plus I use crutches)! LOL Oh, well...at least I can get around! LOL I agree with Karla: the youngsters have no couth when dealing with older people! LOL Great one, Mary; enjoyed~

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :D *I'm gettin' old; 49 next month! YIKES!!*

LOL - young whippersnappers don't know any better! Still, better than "Old Lady!" (like I've heard) - well done, Mary.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
