That's not what I call my husband. I just noticed that lately, I have been calling everyone "darling." From our messenger to my same-level colleagues. I can't recall when exactly it started. My colleagues and those that I call "darling" seem to not mind. Not that anyone said anything "yet."
I better stop this before it becomes a habit. There'a actually nothing wrong if I call anyone my "darling." It sounds sweet but a big no-no in the corporate world.
So, come tomorrow, I will monitor myself and have to really cease the darling name-calling. Other people might give malice on the sweetness and I'll find myself in hot water.
