Up here in 'Doricland' we have quines and loons ( lasses and lads ). Old biddies like me are referred to as 'wifies', or 'auld wifies'
We had workmen in to fix something recently, and one of them kept referring to me as 'mate' I could feel my blood pressure going through the roof. But even that was marginally better than 'dear', made me feel like one of the lads
Speaking of which....what do the men on here think of being endlessly referred to as 'boys' on some television programmes? House renovation programmes are amongst the worst offenders. It annoys the hell out of me, but I'm a gal, so not qualified to comment, really!
