You seem to pay too much attention to things that ultimately shouldn't matter. What made you want to not talk to him in the first place? "Private time" Anytime is private time, what is it about the presence of another cognitive being(such as yourself) that would make you feel less "private"? What have I been called where it was supposed to be an insult? Well I've never really taken anything as an insult as they are just words. Words are words, and since anyone can technically SAY anything, it holds no relevance to me. It's merely language, a way of communicating. There should never be a need for any offense to be taken.

I almost forgot about this one - maybe because I got over it long time back or whatever.
I've been called bull-dozer, African elephant and several other things denoting a heavy physical appearance because I was particularly chubby during childhood. I was never ashamed of these names until my mid-teens when I started feeling a certain pressure to be attractive to boys.
My mom and my bestie still lovingly call me the Hindi version of "fatty" which I don't mind obviously.
Yes, I'm chubby and all, but I'm not ashamed of that fact anymore. I think I'm pretty good.
