easter's Dad

weather: partially sunny
outside: 11°C
mood: *ROTFL*
easter had warned me that she shares the computer with other members of her family and if I find her ignoring me, it could be the others using the computer, but forgetting to log her off. =D I saw "her" online and decided to start talking =)

Session Start (bride:easter): Sat Oct 23 15:01:10 2004
[15:01] bride: okay, XYZ is lame!

A few minutes go by and I realize that it might be her Dad.

[15:05] bride: erm... Hi easter's Dad *wave* =D

A few more minutes go by.

[15:08] easter: hi!
[15:08] easter: sorry. she's not here.
[15:09] bride: that's alright, Sir =)
[15:09] easter: J---- is fine...I'll tell her it's lame.
[15:09] easter: Take care!
[15:09] bride: haha =)
[15:09] bride: thank you =)

Okay, so I'm just way too easily amused, but "I'll tell her it's lame" just totally cracked me up. I can see him rolling his eyes at the ceiling thinking, "girls... sheesh..." too XD =D =D

BTW, Daae, I could never be on a first name basis with my friends' parents. It's my Chinese upbringing, that feels way too disrespectful and I can't bring myself to do it even if I'm asked to. Usually, it's "Aunt Maria" and "Uncle Marco", etc. The most informal I've ever done was to attach "-Mom" or "-Dad" to the end of their names. Like "Shirley-Mom" and "Bill-Dad". =)

I remember as a kid, calling my mother's friends "Cheng-mama" and "Yi-mama", and even now, that's what I still call them.

As far as my non-Asian friends' parents... If they outright tell me not to call them Mr. or Mrs. and tell me to use their first name I will, but it might take a few times to remember. :p

Yeah, we used to do that too. More recently, if we're talking directly to them it, would be "Cheng Auntie" and "Yi Auntie". If we're talking to their kids (ie. our age), we call them "Auntie Maria", "Auntie Tiffany", etc.
