I am 29. But it is ok when your nephew or neice call you that. Even though i have a hard time an older woman calling me aunt (as i am her aunt for real). I always find myself saying 'comon sister' to her. But when kids at the street call you aunt, time to check few grey hair methinks!

Assalamu Alaikum, I see what you mean Swanlake. Recentyl I was called aunty by a 50 year old, I am not 50 yet and I dont look older than her at all. Maybe it was the fact that her children are not married and mine are. My daughter in law wanted to go and point it ot to her, I just laughed and stopped her. Just take it that someone wants to respect you.

 

I sometimes make a post and add Aunty before my name to let the others know that I am from an older generation, and Alhamdulillah everyone has always been respectful to me, except one case where a brother a young one, said something like you dont have to tell us you are older, older people are not intelligent, or something to that effect, seriously, I am not lying. Anyways, take care, aunty umAhmad.

Who would be sooo foooolish and arrogant (to put it very very mildly) to say such a thing????

 

I think it is queit the opposite of that!!!

 

 

p.s. sis, swanlake, time goes on so fast that one does not even realise! one moment your being admitted to school and the next your leaving uni!!! A well that is how things work! But it is an advantage having hope for the hereafter, then you tend to want to get over with it :D

 

Hope your taking it fine....

Umm Ahmed..is that you aunt masooma? :D

 

I remember my dad telling me how an older lady got up for him on the train. Everyone is young at heart and it appears that people dont see themselves how others sees them.

Hasib..we will see how you feel when you are closer to 30!

 

 

I always used to think that by passing 30yr old mark, i would be part of the aunt brigade. But it happened already.

Exact same thing happened to my mum too!

 

Actually, I really wouldn't mind if someone called me aunty (never going to happen tho!)

 

Imagine...

 

You take your younger brother (who is nearly 15 yet how did he become taller than me I'll never know??!!) to the opticians to get his eyes tested. Afterwards;

 

Receptionist lady (leaning forward with nice biiig smile): "Is mum coming too" [to sign some forms]

 

Me (through gritted teeth): "No, I'm old enough" [add cold smile]

 

*sigh*
