Because psychologically speaking, you are not an open person.

So, dear Vince is the best I suppose.

Huh…? Can you tell me in what ways that I am not an open person? :shock:

You didn't say whether you are old or not.
You didn't even write your location in your profile.

Small examples, but can represent your closedness.

How old I am or where I live is not the point here. The point is that you are not using the word “uncle” promptly in English. It doesn’t mean that you are old and you can label yourself as uncle to everyone. Anyway this is my last reply to this post. I don’t thing it is going to change anything to an OPEN MINDED like you UNCLE bambang. Good luck!

Welcome to my boat, brother Vince.

A sweet boat for the elderly.

In my country, spitting at G. W. Bush' photos is just fine.

Here it is also unpolite to barf when you are eating, but I have heard that in India or another country it is a good manner to barf because it means that you liked the food...
