I don't think it's a big deal, I just prefer calling people what they like to be called.

@sunshine45  For the most part, I say "mailman" too.  And, to make matters worse, my "mailman" is a woman.  Woman LOL  

@Citrine1 my mailman is a woman too. I just simply call them a mailman, regardless of gender. I don't worry about it- too many more important things to fret over and my mail"man" is not losing any sleep over it.

I call them all hosts but I do call female actors actresses and male actors actors. lol.


Someone mentioned waitresses. I call them all servers because that's what they call themselves now days, and my daughter was one so the more she said it the more I picked up the servers.


But it doesn't bother me, which ever title they use is fine..
