Lokasenna: Bungles: TheJoe03: Bungles: What I've learned from the comments is that apparently it isn't considered rude by many Americans to refer to someone as he or she when they're standing right there.

As an American, I call bullshiat. If someone referred to me as "he" when I was right there I'd be kind of offended.

But there seem to be a lot of folks in the comments who don't see anything wrong with it. Maybe it's a regional thing?

As a Canadian, I'd be fine with the occasional use of "he" as long as the other people were, you know, generally facing me and that sort of thing. They all seemed to have turned away from him while saying "he" every other sentence.


The only time I'd see it as appropriate is when you're introducing two people: "Aunt Edna, this is Jon. He drives a truck and likes walks on the beach. Jon, this is Aunt Edna. She's a widow who has turned to lesbianism in her dotage".

Troy McClure: I'm no Brand fan, but he was right to point out how stupid the hosts were being.  Who brings a guest on and talks about him like he's not there?


Russell Brand.

I've been to the US dozens of times and I genuinely didn't realise this was a difference in etiquette rather than people being assholes.

Do that in the UK, or Australia, or anywhere in Europe, and it's the equivalent of belching louding in someone's face. Although I hear they like that in Korea.
