    From my experience, they have been short, chubby and mid-aged.......

    Yuck, not those kind. I'm talking about the younger looking ones.


    They are normally very flat-assed and flat chested for some reason

    Males are more likely to say things like "mate" which can come across as rude. Men also have a harsher voice, whereas women can sound higher pitched and bubblier, which is interpreted as friendlier.

    Plus I've found if it's not busy, the females are more likely to want to engage in a conversation with me whilst they are scanning my shopping.

    I always call everyone new i meet, or encounter casually, 'mate' if they're male, or 'love' if they're female. Until they act like a douche. It's never meant to be rude, it's like a full stop. A'right mate, cheers love. Almost everyone I know does the same. Maybe it's a Northern thing.

    And that's the point, it isn't meant to be rude. But to some people it will be taken that way.

    That kind of thing is such a non-clique. :yawn:

    It's a working class thing, not specific to the north.

    I've actually experienced the other way round. :dontknow:
    Likewise. I get the odd flirty chat from a cashier my age, but a lot of them just seem so miserable and unsocial.

    If there's a guy on the till there's normally a bit of "You alright mate?" "Yeah, good thanks, you?" "Yeah, I'm alright thanks" {maybe a bit of small talk} *pays for items* "Thanks mate, have a good day!" "You too mate, cheers!".

    If it's a woman I'm normally like "You alright?" "Hello." *pays for items before thanking them* "Thanks!" *silence*

    I've also experienced hostility from the females. Only, once there was a girl maybe 16, she was very nice. But, that's it.

    You probably can't comprehend how little that means to me. What the holy **** are you trying to communicate?
