I believe Tanger's response to the passing stranger's comment was the correct one. :)

And my head is quietly exploding/imploding with trying to concisely explain who can call someone that, and who they can use it to, without insult/violence...

Yes, sociolinguistic parameters can be intricate and confusticating things! Especially considering the low skill level of the Spectrum.

To say nothing of the possibility that the person who called her that thought he was talking to someone else...

There's a legend of a soccer (well, technically, probably a "football") coach asking his players (in reference to an Englishman) "Awright, which one of you bastards called this here bastard a bastard? He's a Brit and they don't talk like that!"

No idea if there's any truth value. Some people like yanking the yanks.

Anyone attempting to insult me has just brought a knife to a gunfight.
