Regional Slang

A couple of scousers came into the boxing gym earlier and were asking about something, but refered to me as "lad".
 
When he said that I thought you cheeky fcker lol, but that got me wondering, is it the same as calling someone "mate", or is it meant in a patronising way? If that makes sense lol

    Calling someone "lad" here is fairly normal, although it would generally be said by an older person to a younger person.
    I remember a few years ago, there was a craze for calling people 'kid' which I found fairly irritating.
    The normal thing to call people here is 'boy', pronounced as 'bye'.
    A lot of people also say 'man', a lot of younger people say 'fiend'.

    In the UK, calling someone a twat is similar to calling someone an eejit here, but calling someone here a twat will get you in a lot of trouble - its a fairly serious insult.

    Most slang I've come across at some stage I think, but I remember Rack was using the word 'mardy' recently enough which I'd never heard before.
    I don't even know the etymology of the word.
    I've since seen a few people use it, mostly notherners I think.

    The most indecipherable slang I ever heard was some people from Newcastle. It was like listening to a Scotsman trying to speak German.

    I quite like most UK accents apart from the Leeds accent which makes my blood itchy.

    ill see your jeremy kyle and raise you:


    people round here some times say 'son'. which is really annoying because theyre normally not old enough to be 'sons' dad. ive seen this said by a fella who was about 40 or so to my mate jim - who is nearly 80. rediculous.

    LOL, sorry mate, I never liked the accent, but I had a boss a few years ago who was from Leeds, an utterly insufferable woman, gives me chills when I think of it.

    I remember being gobsmacked by how gorgeous Mel B from the spice girls was when I saw her first.
    When she opened her mouth, it was all over.

    Nothing offensive about it, it came from Scotland i think. It just means boy, and lass = girl.
