Someone you have just met calls you by your high school nickname or a shortened version of your name without being asked. Can be simply social-klutzyness but often an early indicator you just met an ill-mannered loser. NB: All is usually forgiven if the person is someone you are attracted to.
Linda: Mark, this is my lovely friend Roanne, Roanne, meet Mark!
Mark: Hi, so what do you do for a crust Ro?
Roanne: It's Roanne thanks.
Roanne (later, to Linda): I don't know why exactly, but premature abbreviation is a major turn off...
