RE: Disaster
Man, did this thread get derailed. Rofl

Here in the states people look at you weird when you use "mate" because here it's strictly used in its literal sense: a person you are committed to and have sex with. Big Grin

Where you Brits use mate, we use bro.

RE: Disaster
It's funny, when I'm speaking out loud I call people "amigo" because I used to work in a restaurant with a bunch of Hispanic guys and we spoke Spanish all the time. But in writing I call people "mate." And with other people my age (like when I visited my old college) I say "bro" or "dude" instead. Lol I never realized this before. 
What was this thread originally about? Tongue

Pal is a dangerous one to use here. Amongst older folks it means friend - to me and younger folks it pretty much means "enemy"

I'm talking about the old. Where I work, that means over 75.

"Chum" is even worse - it means "prepare for war"
