"Don't get me wrong..."

There lives in a local man a slight bit older than me, calling me, "Uncle."

You see in Hawai'i everyone calls their elders "Uncle," or Auntie." Their Piers are called "Bruddah," and "Sista," and some are called "Cuz.

Don't get me wrong it's an honor having a younger person call you, "Uncle," but when that man is 10 years older than me, it's somewhat of an insult.

My only response to to that man was Mahalo (Thank you) Auntie. ;D)
