To think refering to your friends as aunty/uncle X is a bit strange?

I have several friends with young children under the age of 10.

For some reason they all refer to me as 'aunty S' to their children.

I don't mind being referred to as this at all but just thought it a bit weird/strange as they also have biological aunties/uncles so why wouldn't they just call me S?

Am I the only one who finds it a bit bizarre and if you do this, is there any particular reason?

Lighthearted thread, just genuinely curious.

All of my mum and dad's friends were called "auntie and uncle" when I was little. Obviously I don't say it now, but it was something my friends used to do as well.

I don't find it odd.

Ha ha, you'de think I was strange then, long story but I am an only child until last summer when my Mum (unofficially) adopted a young man. He's now supposed to be my Big Bro.....but I call him Dad!! grin. It's all part of my gimmick! cute too
