Also use ‘man’ a lot

Shit, I knew I’d forget something. In addition to how to get a poll right initially.

People who respond to that “you’re not my mate” stuff with that tired South Park Terrance & Philip shit.

  • oh god hilarious
  • I am familiar with the scene, but popular culture has sapped it of any humour it may have once had
  • was never funny

It’s a strong title tbf.


Always feel ‘Pal’ has something of the passive aggressive about it when written down.


I use “big stuff” regardless of the size of the individual concerned.

Ticked all the ones I use whether it be ironic or not

“boss man”


mostly alternate between mate, pal, and bud. feel like I need to introduce a fourth option to the rotation though so might start calling people skipper, see how that goes
