    Too many youngster emo here, I also want!

    I was ordering lunch at golden shoe carpark, level 3. That cheap lunch, at $2 for 3 dish + rice, and the hawker aunty who used to call me a-di (just yesterday) suddenly call me uncle, when she asked for my order.

    Wah piang I got upgraded so fast! Please help me. Please.

    tell her:"Auntie, you are even older than me yet you call me uncle??"

    Anyway, I always reason this kinda situation as "It's normal..because she's auntie..."

    What does the price of lunch have to do with respect?

    I think that everyone in the service industry should use sir and madame, appropriately, of course. It would make things seem so much nicer, don't you think?

    Er... dont wan!

    I rather they keep call me unker, cook reasonably nice hawker food, and I pay $2 for lunch than they go attend some course to upgrade their "skill" and later charge me higher for their better "service".

    Actually it really depends.
    For me if i go kopitiam OR hawker centre, uncle and aunties call me by sir and mdm i will not be used to it. .. but if they do that, i will revert with smiliar greetings fair and square ..

    heartlander like me .. still preferred to be call - xiao mei, ni yao she meh liao!! .. OR Mei Nui .. i like ...

    They call me xiao mei, i will call back xiao jie .. (be it old or young - fake a bit lah hor ...)

    If uncle, i will call uncle .. in general ... then talk talk a bit hope to get extra egg OR extra vege ....

    gosh i sound so auntie ... haha but ...
    this is how we live our life in heartlander place ...
    chin chye eat chin chye grown up ....

    I think i OT liao ... paisay

    this is why I enjoy eating hawker food, the only thing that bugs me is the a-soh or unker who clean the table with same towel... make me think may be I should bring dettol and wipe my own table.
