...do you see this as a compliment or an insult?

I personally think it's condescending when someone in a customer service position calls you that.

I fully expect each response to end in "boss", "chief", "champ", "tiger" etc. :lol

Grow a pair, kiddo.

I tend to address people as kiddo, champ, and chief pretty frequently, but only to people that I'm close with, otherwise it probably seems a little pedantic.

I use guy and bud every once in a while. If someone were to call me one of those or chief or boss, I'd give them shit for it because it is certainly condescending, but I wouldn't really care too much because I do the same thing.

Any term can be condescending, it depends on the circumstances. Look at A.D.A. Ben Stone, he would call people "Sir" every time 'fuckface' might have been more appropriate.

My doctor had been calling me boss for a while and I asked him why one day. He said I reminded him of his ex boyfriend and he used to call him boss too. I always thought it was strange that he used to feel my balls when I had a sore throat.

When someone calls me boss, I usually presume they've done time in prison.
