When Should We be Called "Aunty"

It is a nice Saturday afternoon. As I was walking towards the Young Enterprise booth organized for the secondary school students (each school are sponsored by big MNCs), I was being called 'Aunty' a couple of times by the students who are REALLY aggresive SALES people. They were obviously trying to sell their products and push their sale quotas and forgot to be sensitive towards the patron's feelings.

Come on. Do I look very OLD?
Yes, perhaps, I'm qualified to be your aunties. But still? :P

So, I continued walking, analysing which YEs has the sweetest mouth.
Some switched and called me sister, and others called me, "Miss".
Yes, I remembered, the boy is from Chung Ling High School.

And I continued shopping and bumped into a school friend of mine. She asked her niece to call me Auntie. I was like... no .... just call me "jie jie".
Perhaps, I should start asking people to call me auntie instead.
