I want to second whoever it was that noted that a waitress would not say
"you guys" in a posh restaurant.
On Dennis' note about sexism: Some may find it sexist, but for years
I've heard groups of adolescent and college women call each other "you guys."
I think. Do I imagine that?
It's true. This may be age-graded to some extent.
