I just heard it on the radio. That's kinda ridiculous, considering it is pronounced "missus".

I haven't heard that in quite a while! It's one of those words that makes you feel like someone used their fingernails on blackboard (not that kids nowadays know what a blackboard is.. lol that and people using IDEAL when they mean IDEA. As in "I have an ideal!" lol

I have heard it even by professionals. Its kind of old school and the elderly probably use it as they were
accustomed to as in days gone by.

So basically it is because people were uneducated and not taught the correct way to pronounce it. I see. Then, it just kinda stuck.

I don't care which word is used quite honestly. All of these descriptive words in question are used out of respect, and that's the bottom line.

My dear Dad, God rest his soul, used the term "Mizrez" all of this life. He was such a wonderful, caring and loving person. Everyone adored him and his funeral was packed, standing room only, with hundreds of people paying their last respects.

He was a kind and compassionate man, always considerate and compassionate to everyone he met. He had many cherished friends who respected him due to his polite mannerisms which continued right up until he passed away. He was one of the most outstanding human beings that I've ever encountered on this earth and I try daily to live my life by the examples he set down for me as I grew up to be an adult.

Regardless of whether someone says Mizrez, Miss, Missus or Ma'am, this polite way of speaking to a woman is still key to this day.

My fathers memory is always spoken about with the greatest of respect given him and there isn't a person alive who has anything ill to say about him. His heart was pure and his mannerisms showed such during each and every day he drew breath. He was an honorable man who tried every day to make people smile. And he also loved the Lord, living his life to honor Him and His glory while treating his fellow human beings with respect, many times when they certainly didn't even deserve any.

So in my opinion it doesn't matter how you address someone with these descriptives, it's all about what's in your heart that matters. There is nothing wrong with saying 'Mizriz', if that's even the correct spelling of it. It's still a sign of the utmost respect which is given to whoever is being addressed.

Why this is even an issue at all is beyond my comprehension. Being polite and respectful to your fellow human beings is slowly becoming a thing of the past. We should focus more on why people these days don't care to be respectful any more, while focusing less on what words people use to relay their respect.

Actually it has nothing to do with respect. It is just an abbreviation for the title of a married woman.
