stop calling me Danny!

I know it's always good to include people's name in a conversation to show that we actually acknowledge the person. And also a very good way to remember the name. But sometimes i think it's just too much for me ...

Before the class, i talked to a makcik ...

Her : Danny, so u ajar class full time ke?

Me : Takde la. Part time je. I ada keje sendiri.

Her : Oh ye? So Danny keje apa? Boss sendiri ye Danny?

Me : Boss apa? Keje sorang je.

Her : Knaper Danny? Taknak ambik staff ke Danny?

I started to feel regret talking to her. I never been annoyed the name "Danny" till then. ;p
Do you think it's a bit over?
Do you like to include the names in a conversation?

  8. But that's how Malay speaks. It means that she respects you a lot by calling you by your name (unless you want her to refer to you as abang or adik). By calling you as "you" ain't that polite also, and kamu also not that polite. Worst would be calling you kau or engkau. (;

    2. Sabar iyer. Sabar itu sebahagian daripada iman. My colleagues (Malay) always call be by my family name and seldom calling me "you". Well, I guess I'm used to it already.
