hey you

You know what really gets my goat? Hey-you-ers. Uggh. Those people who use "hey you" no matter how close you get to them. Whether you are coworkers, classmates, or good friends, it doesn't matter. Everyone gets the hey you. I once was involved with a hey-you-er, and still got the hey you even after we were, well, intimate. It didn't end. Via email, on the phone, as a greeting, even *gasp* in bed. Hey you. Needless to say, that didn't last.

I just don't get it. Do they think it's cute or funny? Are they lazy? Or are they just really bad at remembering names? Whatever it is, give it up. Is it really that hard to personalize? Use a name or a nickname, or you just might be hey-you-ing yourself out of a good thing.
