Why did I get called ma'am by a cashier yet a woman roughly 15 years older than me did not?

Between the two of us it's obvious that I'm younger than her and I had my infant in the stroller. So I'm confused why I got called ma'am (don't use the bullshit excuse that I had my baby with me, that's more of a reason not to be called that) the other woman was more of a ma'am, I really do not understand.
