Who You Callin’ “Hun”?!

30 Jul

This weekend I fell victim to white trash. Gross, I know. They weren’t chasing me down in a beat up minivan like the last time I had a white trash encounter. But this time was just as annoying, if not more. This white trash broad in particular did what all white trash of every age has a nasty habit of doing (and I don’t mean smoking 2 packs of Newps a day then washing them down with a Dunks iced coffee with extra cream/extra sugar): she called me “hun”. Ugh! I hate this shit! I don’t care who you are or how old you are: DON’T CALL ME “HUN”. This chick in particular is a couple of years older than me, but that doesn’t give her the right. The only people with with rights to “hun’ing” me are my older family members. If you aren’t a blood relative, you need to stop. First of all, the girl who called me “hun” this weekend is a ripping white trash “nurse” (white trash who are medical assistants tend to refer themselves as “nurses”, but they really just have lower level jobs in medical billing and coding or something of that nature. Sometimes they don’t even work in the medical field, they just sniff prescription pills and think that gives them the “nurse” title. ). She’s like 32 but still looks like she shops at The Cube in Marshall’s. You know, Angels jeans, pleather and animal print enthusiast, etc. She leaves the Caps Lock on when she types. I can’t even. Just please, don’t call me “hun”. Because “hun” implies that you think you are better than me. And you’re not. Quite the contrary. Ladies: don’t let anyone call you “hun”. “Hun” is a derogatory term that white trash uses to talk down to you. Sometimes you will be horrified to find that even girls who are younger than you will call you “hun”. They’ll say it after almost every sentence to make themselves feel validated. Sometimes “hun” is the white trash’s way of being passive aggressive.

“What’s up, HUN?!”

“Hey HUN, can I get a cigarette?”.

Disgusting.  Don’t let it happen. Let’s get down to business to defeat the HUN.

    I must say I am guilty as charged. Once in a very blue moon I myself end a conversation with, “It was nice meeting you, Hun”. When I use the term it is typically a nervous reaction to a rare encounter with the cities trashiest. I try not to look at myself as white trash. I come from a working class family on Penns Hill, raised to stay away from the trash of Quiny. But I do have trashy qualities… or so it seems.

      I was raised on Penn’s Hill too, and have been called “Hun” by more diner waitresses and dive bar female bartenders in the Q and beyond than I can remember. I always saw it as the female equivalent of the white trash phrase “buddy” – as in, “Hey buddy, know what the numbah was last night?” No, and I’m not your buddy. I always find buddy more annoying than hun, for some reason. Must be a male thing.

    OK, I’m not sure how I found this blog…but I freakin’ love it! 😉

    This is one of my pet peeves too, being called “hun”…especially by somebody younger than me. I can accept it from a sweet little old lady, but not from condescending people my own age or younger. It is generally a term of endearment here in the South but I agree that sometimes women use it as a way of subtly talking down to one another.

    As to white trash…well, I’m biracial (black and white) so i guess that makes me “half-white trash”, lol.

    I’m nearly 30. I remember wearing Angels jeans when I was in high school. And I love animal print! I actually bought a Lucky Brand shirt from Marshall’s recently with the cutest leopard pattern all over it. I didn’t know about The Cube until you mentioned it, though. I’ve never seen that here in Miami.

    Never been to Quincy, either…how far is that from Boston? I’ve been to Boston a few times.

    You clearly don’t know your white trash P’s & Q’s. “Hun” is a term of endearment a woman would use to try to make YOU feel comfortable because she can so clearly tell that your yuppie ass is WAY out of your element. And whatever makes you think you are better than these “trashie” people- your clothes, your higher wage, your zip code- you should really re-evaluate yourself, because 99.9% of humans would rather spend the rest of their lives with someone who calls them “hun”, than spend one hour with a stank-attitude “woman”, ie, YOU…(If you’re not “trashy would you call yourself “classy”? Hah, hilarity!)

      I’m sorry, I cannot converse with someone with a “69” in their email address.
