What does it mean when someone calls you young lady?
A cashier around 65 years old called me young lady. I'm 35 but can pass for 29 the youngest. I'm wondering if he was saying that to be nice or because I looked younger than 35 to him?
I've heard this expression before, genius. But I assumed young lady was for younger women just like ma'am is for older women. If you're going to leave sarcastic or nasty answers don't bother.

At 65, most people are young to him.

You were a lot younger than him and he was being polite.

You're 35, and have never heard this expression before.
Congrats for coming out from under your rock.
