It's Like Ep Is Slowly Taking Over My Brain

I was in the grocery store today, and a lady walked up to me, and she was saying she needed to get a few towns over, but she didn't have any more money to travel on the bus. I didn't have any spare cash, and normally, 98% of the time I'm very polite and well mannered when speaking to others, but before I could catch myself, this strange name slipped out of my mouth:

"I don't have any extra cash, Ma..."

?????? Ma??? When the hell did I start calling women "Ma?" O_O I give people nicknames here, but that was a RANDOM LADY in the grocery store, I just don't do that!
