not offensive but very annoying, i agree.
i dont like being addressed as one, to be honest i never have in real life but i do all the time on the internet.
ive just had a look in the dictionary and it looks like the word dude is summet to do with fool..
so when mr. t says yo fool is he really saying yo dude?
I understand. But sometimes if I call a friend dude, as in, " your so funny dude or please pass the plate dude, they get offended while some of my other friends don't and laugh it off saying things like "yeah okay DUDE", just make fun of the fact that I used the word. Lol it's got me confused.
LOL matty, stop giving me points and answer my comment dude. :-P Who is Mr T dude? I heard of the Mr Bump, Mr Nosy, Mr Square etc all the Mr Men books but haven't come across Mr T? unless you mean Mr Tumble.....Thanks dudeeeeeee Matty
I think the Americans use the terminology a lot. Wouldn't think it is offensive, but damn annoying if someone keep calling me a 'dude", I would need to left my dress up and show them I'm a “dudette” just to shut their traps up. :-P
It depends on the context in which its used, obviously u don't want to call ur teacher or boss that, I wudnt suggest that. Give me an example in which ur talkin about and I can say if its appropriate
