Girl = Under 18

I swear, if my male co-worker answers the phone just ONE MORE TIME with "Hey, girl!" when I call, I will march right over to where he is sitting and shove the receiver down his throat with much perverse pleasure.

I wish I were quick enough on the retorts to say, "How's it going, boy?" to him when he does that. But my automatic "hello response" just kicks in, and then I quietly fume on the other end of the line.

Grumble.

It sounds better than "Hey, old fart!"

You should say, "I am sorry, is your mommy home", or even better "I am so sorry, I must have the wrong number I thought I was calling a business." I hate that as much as being called "Honey, sweety, and ofcoarse mam"

Seriously, IS he gay? You should just say, "hey dufass!". Or just leave off the first syllable.

Hey girl? That would be odd sounding coming from a dude. Does he say FABULOUS too?

Sadly he sounds like the kind of numbnuts who would relish the fact that he has got a rise out of you. Poor Sap.
