Did I get an earful on a "Hey!" when I was in London!!
The concierge in my apartment really took offence when I casually greeted him - "Hey!"
I got something on these lines:"That's very disrespectful of you. How dare you 'hey' me?!"
So I have been ever so careful when using "hey" over a "hi" or a "hello". I thought this was a very English thing, but quite surprising to find quite a few English folks on this page to be okay with "hey".
Hey, what the heck!
