I have been told in the past that my voice sounds younger than I am, but I do not think he would have called me “Dear” if he thought I was a young woman. I guess my prescriptions gave me away – perhaps, only older ladies get these types of prescriptions. I haven’t been going there long enough for him to know me.
Even though I know these people think they are being courteous to me, I still shudder now when I go out – I am either “Miss Peggy” or “Dear.”
Alas, they think I am OLD.
