I find it condescending. Not sure why.
Anyone else like this?
not sure why the sex of that person matters.
i th8ink this is more the case
just seems a bit wrong - not sure why
"you stupid cunt" instead?
one kept on using the term boy when talking to the other e.g.
'I tell you what boy'
'It was off the chart boy'
'That place is rubbish boy'.
Seems like this is the thread for this observation.
there were two chubby middle-aged men having a chat about work, and one of them used the phrase "laughing gear" about three times in the conversation, but I don't think he knew what it meant because it seemed to be used to mean he would look at something. One of his sentences was "I'll wrap my laughing gear around that when I get back to the office" when they were talking about an application form. Unless I'm very much mistaken, that means he's going to stick it in his mouth.
and he was saying he was gonna wrap his la fingere around something when he got back to the office. maybe his stylo or some patisserie.
I'll give him that
instead of 'have a butcher's'.
Natural Glaswegian thing to do mind.
the only time i evr see/hear the word pal is on here when someone is being apssiev aggressive
even with my thinly-veiled, reckon it's pretty standard in the weeg
i say mate/pal/man out of habit, but sometimes I get big man/wee man off other people.
Not sure how I'm meant to feel about it. I'm probably a wee man to most people in terms of age/size so when i get big man it feels a bit condescending, but it would still be patronising to get wee man too. There's probably a logic to it that I don't get since I'm not a big man/wee man sort of guy.
I drop it in casually sometimes to trades people and delivery people sometimes - let them know I'm a good fella, one of them etc.
Sometimes it pisses me off a bit though. Just depends who says it I think.
Know what I mean mate?
It should be 'sweetheart' or nothing at all.
instantly lets you know that a woman doesn't find you attrative in any way, shape or form.
complete insecurity on your part.
the word you meant to use was 'emasculates'.
You demasculinised fat pig!
there there *pats head*
'it's so good we are such good mates?, you know, great mates. Just really good mates, friends who are just pure and simple mates. Just mates, mates, WE ARE JUST MATES
maybe they're just being friendly. just don't worry about it.
you're inna, inna
Imprisoned in the friendzone.
that you'd be bothered by a term that implies friendship if it comes from a woman.
Don't have a problem with it personally. Although I don't use it myself, I just think I'd make it sound really insincere.
Both work though!
and you come rolling in with your sexist trolly thread. I can't compete.
I'm never going to start a genuine thread again; it's not worth it. For all it's crying about them, DiS wouldn't know what to do with itself if all the trolls left.
good luck with the bicycle thread
when they get a new sexual partner and they call me by my surname, that I'm uncomfortable with, spar.
Just find it a bit odd.
But no worries pal.
you're clearly het up today. speak soon
USE MY NAME I'VE SEEN YOU NAKED.
Burly old men call each other duck and petal
she didn't care for it.
She's over it now though.
I use it all the time, for closely friends and relative strangers alike and it genuinely hadn't occurred to me that people might be offended by it/ find it impersonal and rude.
People on here have neuroses about all sorts of stupid shit.
Personally, I don't care if people call me mate, pal, chief, daddy-o, bruv, geezer, dude, ...
but it's dis isn't it - i ( and i assume others ) just ham up their annoyances
DONT CALL ME DUDE
it really really winds me up
and got annoyed because a girl called him 'mate'
and was stood in a chippy screaming 'PET?!?!! PET?!!!! YOU CAN'T CALL ME PET!!!'.
in short, you're a stupid cunt.
I try not to let it get to me though
it's the female equivalent of a guy calling a girl "love"
Guy trying to appear to be more connected to the female than he is, while female tries to distance male with use of completely non ramantic terminology. you know what I'm too tired to think about this today and my office is too hot. See you later mate.
Depends. You wanna bang her?
