    Ms. (pronounced slightly as mizz, not a strong z sound but not pronounced  as miss)

    Thank you :) I don't know why I forgot that.

    Excuse me but I don't know your name

    Good-Good sometimes that might work...lol

    As Colleen has stated it is polictically correct to call her Ms. ---.I'm sorry Panda Ma-aM is so old fashion and very American * ooops you are an American. lol.

    Yes I am Going with Ms. Thank you and thank you Colleen.

    Ms. fairly much covers it for me. But, if she's being naughty, you could call, Ms Behaving. If she's seems stand-offish, and mysterious...you could call her, Ms. Understood, or if she has an explosive personality...you could call her Ms. Sile, and then point her in the direction of someone that you don't like and leave promptly there after.

    Ms. will always be correct.

    Yes thank you...

    I am just impressed that you know the difference between Mrs. and Miss...... This is one of my pet peves living here in the South... EVERY WOMEN is Miss.

    Hey Lady!!! LOL

    You can ask if she prefers to be addressed as "MS" or "MRS".   (MIZZZ or MISSES). 

    I agree with Ms, but why not just ask .
