Don't worry, Pier 56, you're not weird and I know precisely what you mean..., Pier 56.I actually don't use people's names, as odd as that sounds.
Like, I don't say "hello, Tom!". I say "hey, Bro. How's it going?"
Saying the persons name just sounds so formal.
Not having to say their name, but have it understood that you're talking to them has a feel of familiarity.
Or am I just weird? 0_o
Don't answer that... Lol!
See how weird that is?
Anyway, I really dislike how saying goodbye becomes such a drawn out production sometimes, so I keep silent until I can butt in to say "okay, later [or whatever]."
Probably some more I'll think of later.
