Do Not Use Dude

I cannot believe I got told off for using the term 'dude'.

For fucks sake - I have called people a 'twat' before now and that was not an issue.

However, it appears that from a European perspective, the americans do not like the term 'dude'.

Thus, Mr or Mrs America


Point 4

You invented the 'D' word in the first place

Point 3


I was trying to be polite

Point 2

Grow up mentally

Point 1

Stop reading between the lines - try getting the bigger picture

I am pissed off with your ineptitude, you arrogant bunch of tossers but,
dude
if you want me to fix your fuck-ups again, the helldesk is available on 666.


Of course, that could just be me - but, "feel free to dude what you want, any old time"

Which typifies ? le terme "le type" Is not necessarily pejorative ! ( Have the Asiatic type "dude" or Amerindians...)

Here it's "Hola tío". You must have heard that before.

I didn't know they didn't like the word 'dude'. You prolly ran into a thin-skinned dude, lol.

Ms Krabitz -> I don't run - it's very un-Gothic. I shall prepare a list of things Goth's don't do for your perusal

Daphne Wayne-Bough dijo...

Um, "dude" is a awfully Wayne's World doncha think? Anybody know the etymology?

Crabtree dijo...

[Sous le Second Empire] Jeune homme très élégant, raffiné et assez ridicule. Jeune gandin; veston de gandin; mener une vie de gandin. Aujourd'hui, il était un gandin, un dandy!

Crabtree dijo...

Pardon l'éthymologie precise !! Dude ( Gandin ,dandy ,dandin )

George Dandin ;Un pourpoint à la poche bizarrement orné , des souliers aux lacets exubérants .La dérisoire hyper-identification de Dandin avec " le style des nobles "...l'imitation se trahit par sa maladresse excessive ; la proximité exhibée indique la différence maintenue .
Dandin est donc d'abord un costume , risible en ce qu'il veut mal à propos plagier les habits nobilaires. Et donc un nom George Dandin , porteur d'une double connotation . la première renvoie au sens même du verbe étymon:" dandiner , le dictionnaire de l'académie française de 1694 , signifie" branler la tête et le corps comme le font les niais,et ceux qui n'ont point de contenance "

Bref , un type non défini !!!

Crabtree dijo...

Autre variante le dandin ou gandin " Dude " est un GODELUREAU de godellus ( Gode, Godin, Gaudin, Godon )« Fainéant qui s'amuse à faire le joli cœur auprès des femmes. »


J'ai peine, je l'avoue, à demeurer en place,
Et de mille soucis mon esprit s'embarrasse,
Pour pouvoir mettre un ordre et dedans et dehors,
Qui du godelureau rompe tous les efforts.

Dude? Sirrah, I am still coming to terms with the decline in the use of starched collars, penny-farthing bicycles, monocles and that.

Eat my shorts.

PI dijo...

Surely it's a term of endearment?
American equivalent of mate?

Crabtree dijo...

Aîe ! Would have I to translate ??

Sewmouse dijo...

Perhaps they had a seriously over-inflated sense of self-importance and considered your friendly "dude" to be far too much of a familiarity for someone of your lowly stature (in their eyes) to be using to their august personages?

Fuck 'em, Dude.

....You Sick Bastard dijo...

Yeah I don't like the word "dude" either. I prefer to be called a twat. Makes me feel like a somebody.
