I work in the service industry, and I am expected to refer to people as ma'am or sir. I've been trying to think of a gender neutral term that holds just as much respect, but I can't think of any. Do y'all have any suggestions?

That’s a VERY good question, and a very crucial discussion!! Unfortunately, we’re not aware of any that equate to “sir” or “ma’am” in the same sort of situational context, and it’s invaluable and necessary to know of some and have them on hand, particularly if you work in the service industry! We’ve looked into this briefly in an attempt to find some, but there seems to be a definite lack of a general term that can be used while having no knowledge of the particular person’s gender and are unlikely to learn it (which would be common in the service industry). The closest approximation we could find were terms like comrade, which would definitely sound strange if used in a customer/employee situation…!!

(In casual situations outside of work, many situations in which “ma’am” or “sir” are typically used don’t necessarily require either term - e.g., when trying to get someone’s attention, it’s very typical to add “sir”/”ma’am” to “Excuse me”/”Pardon me”. While it’s definitely ingrained in our collective consciousness to do so, just “Excuse me” would likely suffice. The same might go for many similar situations.) 

If anyone has any suggestions for a gender-neutral equivalent to “sir” or “ma’am”, please write us!!

well all the people who work in the service industry who have called me “sir” would have been showing me just as much respect by calling me “pile of shit”, which is gender neutral at least

We now know that 24 hours without sleep, or a week of sleeping four or five hours a night induces an impairment equivalent to a blood alcohol level of .1 percent. We would never say, ‘This person is a great worker! He’s drunk all the time!’ yet we continue to celebrate people who sacrifice sleep for work.

I think the thing people don’t realize with that bullshit “well not all guys are dangerous, you should give them a chance” or what the fuck ever is like 

if i had a plate of cookies and i was like yeah, a few of them have laxatives in them and one’s got cyanide in there, BUT THEY’RE NOT ALL LIKE THAT

you’re probably not gonna take a fucking cookie

I can’t breathe. This is so accurate.

okay so just so im clear here

You’re saying it’s ok to generalize me because I COULD be a rapist

tell me you’d take that cookie or shut the fuck up

the willful ignorance you’ve displayed here in dodging the point is not endearing

(spoiler: if you tell me you’d take the cookie i will call you a fucking liar because no you wouldn’t)
