The 3-yr old talk has got to stop!

Maybe it's always been this way and I never noticed, but ladies... can we call a truce to talking like 3-yr olds in a professional setting, hmmm?

Granted, all bets are off at a baby shower but listening to 2 30-40 yr old ladies acting cutsie "No, thank youuuuuu" is like nails on a chalkboard to me. I just listened to a voicemail left for me by my dentist's office and had to hear it 3 times before I realized it wasn't a call from one of my daughter's friends in the 2nd grade.

Can someone clue me in about this phenomenon? I can't be the only one that's noticed it...

I have no idea what you're talking about. Could you be a little more vague?

And by the way, if people talking like 3-year olds to each other is so annoying to you, you may need to get some perspective on what is and is not annoying.
