You exploit a girl's phobia and she's still angry with you five episodes later. She needs to take a leaf from Hayate's book and be more forgiving. Hell, Hayate doesn't often get mad at people to begin with.
Well, as you said, she isn't mad at him anymore, and she isn't giving him a hard time about it either. It's just that her initial "Hayate-kun" closeness from as early as S1 episode 04 has been revoked
Consider it a task to notice when she'll revert to "Hayate-kun" again.
