Erm... I can't say 'Honey'. Or rather I can't say it as a term of affection. A workmate brought cup of tea today and I, in my most relaxed voice said 'Thanks Honey'. She paid it no mind but I cringed at how false it sounded. I wasn't sure why. I can't swear very well either, but this troubles me a bit more, especially since it seems like an important part of at least this work place. It occured to me the only terms of affection I ever use are 'kid' and 'mate' - not conciously you understand - just to fill a moment - not fantastically intelligent, I know. I suppose it's because I like names so much. Although I do hate people who use your title so much they wear it out - Yes Stuart, No Stuart, Three bags of Stuart.
