Well, I got called to the kitchen during lunch today at school - the lunchroom lady said the secretary needed to talk with me. So I go sailing into the kitchen, pick up the phone, and say "Hey, cutie!" Turns out the secretary was merely placing the call for the principal. Needless to say, that was the first time I ever called my boss "cutie." He's a (cool, hip, fun - pick your adjective) sort of guy so he took it in stride. He even ended the phone call by saying "Bye, sweetie." I won't tell his wife.
