Ask Amy: Readers pile on against being called ‘honey,’ ‘sweetie’
I will never address anyone as “Honey,” “Sweetie,” “Dear,” etc.”Showing respect to others is at the forefront of my mind and training. As a patient I’ve more than once been called “Sweetie” and “Honey,” and each time I look them in the eye and quietly respond, “Please, call me Linda.”Every single time, the person who called me “Sweetie” or “Honey” gets mad! I cannot count how many times I am called “Sweetie,” “Honey,” “Dear,” and even “Love” in a workday! Dear Amy: If the older man called a younger woman “Sweetie,” we would jump to call that inappropriate. – Big Picture Feminist NurseDear Amy: It’s obvious to me that the gentleman who hates being called “Sweetie” and “Honey” does not live in the South.mlive.com

This honey aims to save millions of bees -- and it's infused with CBD
"When we give out honey, people are like, This is nothing like I've ever tasted,'" Johnstone said. "The way we receive our CBD is already manufactured in a way we can infuse it into our honey in Austin," Johnstone said. Johnstone said even though the honey is made by bees in Texas, it can still benefit people all over the country in the same way. And he said his CBD-infused honey isn't just great as a food or in drink, but because it's so raw, real and organic, it's just as great great for using on wounds and as facial masks. That's why, Johnstone said, he chose honey as his avenue for delivering CBD.
