The Relative Age Syndrome

So you think it is terrible that a toddler calls you Uncle/Aunt when you are only twenty years old?

Wait till you’re in your soon-to-bid-farewell-to-thirties, and a young man, thick moustache and six pack and good looks and all, going out to work in the morning, says Good Morning Auntie. (Or Uncle, as the case may be.)

Your covert ogle frozen in mid-act, you barely manage to blink and croak, “Hi”.

I am just saying. Things could be worse.

    Thanks for the comment, Shailaja. I get a lot of spam comments, that's why I enabled captcha.. Is it causing too much trouble?

    Haha yeah I took it personal and was hurt initially but now I am all good with kids calling me aunty 😀 I think everyone should look their age and feel good about it.!

    I used to get those too, but you can turn on comment moderation instead. Turn off CAPTCHA, since it reduces blog traffic considerably.
