    I set them straight. With comments like I am sorry 'Jane' we don't want to confused little Bella by calling everyone aunt or uncle.

    I find it extremely disrespectful to actual aunt and uncle.

    My SIL doesn't like that our kids call my best friend Aunty xyz. It's not her call to make though. Absolutely up to the parents what they find acceptable or not.

    My best friend has been a huge part of my life for over 15 years and I was estranged from my sisters from the age of 13 so she's practically my family.

    dh's SIL will send us mail and we're either aunty/uncle (even though said mail item has no relation to her child) or "mr and mrs". it's very presumptuous of her to assume I'm a mrs (I use ms).

    can't she just use our given names like a normal person?
    If she's sending snail mail maybe she feels rude putting first names on the envelope. I know I do everything I can to avoid it. I'd remind her gently that you are actually a Ms though.

    My besties kids call me Aunty and my kids call her Aunty and her DH Uncle. I love it. I totally understand why others would feel uncomfortable though.

    My cousin is an only child and my brother, him and I had a pact growing up that we'd all be Aunty or Uncle to each other's kids. He's my brother from another mother... And father lol. My Mum and Aunty always say that they've got three kids between them

    Sorry, I went off reminiscing there!

    we had a small group of very close friends when we were first married, and we all had children around the same age. now all those children are parents, and busy with their own lives, but when they catch up it is like they have never missed a conversation. it is so nice to have those extra 'cousins' as part of the village. my children feel closer to those 'cousins' than they are to their actual cousins. marie

    Dear inconsiderate people at the bus stop,

    Thank you for standing (and taking over) the only seat available on a day where the temp is well into the 30's.

    Thank you for then proceeding to smoke at said bus stop so anyone near you (eg. Anyone waiting for the bus or sitting on the seat) has to inhale your smoke.

    Thank you that an exhausted pregnant woman (me) had to stand out of your smoke on a disgustingly hot day just to save my lungs because of your choice to smoke.

    And then you don't even want to catch a bus.

    Thanks so much.
