    What the fuck is with people saying 'mate'?

    Lately I've been hearing Americans and other non-UK/Aussies saying this.

    I don't care if you're a kangaroo fucking/tea sucking bastard but when I see an openly gay black hipster wearing nothing but a scarf and a limp wrist giggling "mate" my left hand has to contain my right hand from smackin a bitch.

          I work at Whole Foods, which is infested with yuppies.

          Whenever I say "Have a nice day" after walking them to what they originally asked for, about 1/2 of the male yuppies will respond with "Cheers."

                        When I was in the states recently I said "cheers" a lot but I don't think I ever said "mate".

                          It's a haven for hipster/yuppies who go to buy "local produce" and self rightous food to feel better about spending their parents money.


                          it's only in america, but don't worry, your town will be just as faggy too.

                            All stores sell shit like that here. We have the whole Fair Trade thing going on.

                            But, I bet you sell wheatgrass and shit like that, typical yuppie food.

                                          Yes

                                          He's right. That's the only reason Whole Foods exists.



                                          PS: Whole Foods doesn't advertise "Local Produce." They actually put out lists of near by farmers' markets for the shoppers to check out when that time of year comes around.

                                          PPS: Whole Foods isn't only in America.

                                            Americans say cheers like such fags, 'chee-yurs'. Its a one syllable word.

                                              If people really want to save the world, they should grow all of the food that they can themselves using a technique called Permaculture and steal everything else form big corporate stores.

                                                      I want to start growing my own food, but the apartment I live in offers me no space whatsoever to garden.

                                                      If people REALLY want to save the world, they should stop eating meat.

                                                        It's natural to eat meat. However, it's not natural to mass-produce and excessively consume it.

                                                            I'm all about getting back in touch with our primitive roots, but, the fact is, we've evolved beyond that and meat isn't necessary in our diets at all.

                                                            The processes involved with putting meat on your table end up using more gas and emitting more harmful odors than the amount of gas used/odors emitted from the cars of the average American commuters on a yearly basis

                                                            (Of course, the use of gas for transporting livestock would not be considered as gas used by the "average American commuter.")

                                                                        I don't care if you're a kangaroo fucking/tea sucking bastard but when I see an openly gay black hipster wearing nothing but a scarf and a limp wrist giggling "mate" my left hand has to contain my right hand from smackin a bitch.

Although I mainly deal more in the roughneck side of conversations due to my job. I do get cheers, mate, and boss when speaking to Europeans on the phone. Btw, even hick "Euros" sound much more educated then Americas southern folk. Geezes it's embarassing.
