The "miss" part is what hit me hard when I moved here. It seems like something left over from the times of slavery. I can live with the others but that... I wish people would stop doing it.
“Miss” is not left over from “times of slavery” (I assume you are referring to the American South and not our present world-wide issues with human slavery). Miss was a young woman who was not yet married or a spinster. The term is used world-wide and in every language. One of the most interesting things about traveling is hearing local colloquilisms. I have yet to be offended by how I am addressed by a clerk, assistant, other human in general. People are the only “things” around that make life so interesting. Be grateful you are alive to be annoyed I guess.

Oops! Guilty as charged!!

I've been known to end my calls with customer care services with, "thank you dear"
It just slips out and being older it comes from having some British influence.
As @TheGecko said above, it's the context that matters.
