The miss v. ma’am debate rages on:

I am a 54-year-old woman and I still get the occasional
“Miss”. It is usually from a man that is younger than me and it
flatters me a for a few moments until I question if it is “sympathy”
Miss– especially if it is someone waiting on me in a store or restaurant. Like
they know it’s a way to get on a middle-aged woman’s good side. I never get
“miss” from a young woman.
