If your niece or nephew referred to you only by your first name, would feel that he/she was being disrespectful?
Respect comes from actions, it isn't in a name.
I like being called Auntie, even by those kids I'm not related to. I don't think the omission would feel disrespectful, but it would feel odd.
I expect to be called Sir, darn it! :P
Just kidding... I don't find it disrespectful. Unless if they are saying it in a disrespectful manner.
I have 7 nieces and nephews and none of them call I'm uncle. They call me booboo or Gilbert.
Depends on their age and if we have has a prior conversation about it. I love being an Aunt though so I love the title.
If they were 18?
That would be fine as adults,
I have always hated the term Uncle ____ and Aunt ____.
I called my uncle only by his first name today and I got a message back starting with "it's uncle John."
We were talking about the ACA and he said my lack or respect was as bad as my knowledge of the government... This was right after he called Obama a socialist Muslim dictator.
No; I wouldn't care. They're all adults. I haven't seen any of them for a while, but I think they all still call me Aunt Susan anyway. Doesn't matter to me.
And what's good with your location thing? That some long ass acronym?
MYDWTOLYH stands for "make wise decisions with the only life you have." A teacher of mine used to say that to all of his students on Fridays at the end of class. My Fridays feel incomplete without it now.
Wow, probably because I didn't know what to expect at all, that was a pleasant surprise. That's a dope saying!
It has turned into a bit of a tradition the school. We even made t-shirts!
That's deep haha. Cool. Y'all got a slogan.
How you been?
I'm doing all right. A lot going on this week, so just busy. How about you, Jive?
Better to be busy than stagnant. I had to drop all my classes because I'm moving to Florida in like a month. I get mad bored lol. I been good though, I might be on SOHOA next Sunday. Pretty hype at that prospect.
Why the move to Florida? I'd go mad without classes lol. I'm psyched for you to be on SOHOA! That is going to be great!
Mom lost her job, so we gonna try moving in with her boyfriend and his daughter. I'm basically going cause that'd be best for my education. Staying up here with but a struggle just to stay in touch with my friends. Sucks, but what can you do?
I'm sorry to hear that :( I wish you both the best of luck down there. Hopefully it will work out in your favor!
Thank you Carpenter, I wish you the best as well <3
We'll try and make wise decisions with the only lives we have.
Mine mostly call me Auntie, but occasionally by name and it's fine with me.
I call my aunts and uncles by the first names.
I've asked again and again to just be called by my first name.
I know that I would never want to be called 'Aunt Emily.'
An uncle of mine corrected me today... Made me wonder if other people found it disrespectful too.
