Why is it that I've been called ma'am by cashiers older than me and not by people younger than me?

The people addressing me as ma'am are 45-60 years old and I'm younger than that. Yet people younger than me address me as "Miss" or don't address me as anything (which is more preferred for me) if anything shouldn't the younger people use the word ma'am instead of old fucks old enough to be my parents?
