    I Know, I Know

    How whiney does this appear? I know that it is manners and when addressing people on the phone I do it myself as it is expected, but it is a personal thing to me.  I just do not like being addressed as Ms or Miss H*** and indeed I still get referred to as Mrs even though...

    Being a child at heart is where is where pick fun at people, in a playful way. Being immature is when you are doing a bad habit that you are too old for, and you need to stop.
