YABU. My Grandad used to call me Sausage all the time when I was a child. I'm the same age as you and this Christmas will be the 5th one without him. I would give anything to have him still with me, calling me Sausage... its a term of endearment.

Yikes I'm called sausage too!! But I'm more freaked out that my cousin is known as 'mash'.

YABU, It's a lovely, affectionate word.

>>recalls using it for pfb<<

my gran calls me a soppy haddock... it could be worse (it is affectionate!)

It's his right and privilege as I'm sure he'll always see you as his little girl, no matter how old you are. YABU wink

I call DS1 Sausage or Poop .... however, he's only 7 and hasn't told me to stop yet so I guess I can get away with it for a bit longer

My dad and sister call me sausage! Why? I have never understood it. I thought it was just them being weird but now i learn it is widespread! There MUST be a reason!

YABU it's lovely

dd is called sausage (or often sausie) precisely because my dad called me sausage. Where does this one come from? Little fat swaddled babies?

YABU. I call DS sausage.

It could be worse: my father called me Fanny until I was 15 and threatened to leave home if he didn't stop. He still has the occasional lapse and I'm 37.

I used to be spud. Was spud as a baby but it re-emerged when I was just the right age to get very offended. He has stopped now. I rather liked it.

(spud was because of my name not because I was fat and shapeless I might add!)

i was a sausage, my dds are sausages too

perhaps you could be something a bit more grown up....chorizo?

Count your blessings, I was "affectionately" known as Buggerlugs courtesy of my dadhmm

My Dad used to call me Princess or Poppet!!!
I used to hate it but actually I miss it now he's gone sad

teameric Thu 26-Nov-09 10:10:33

YABU my dad used to call me princess, now it's his pet name for my DD, I wish I was still his princess smile

I was always pud and I vaguely remember my cousin being called the little sodpot haha

You are lucky to have a dad that thinks of you in affectionate way.

I was pigeon <bemused>

Unless I was constantly shitting on the car windscreen and was minus a foot, I don't really get it.
