Someone called you "bud"
Example: You walk into a store, and an employee behind the counter greets you with "How's it going, bud?"
I said that to a guy that came in yesterday and he legit filed a complaint against me. All because I called him bud.
Am I missing something?

I think he's missing something
Are you sure you didn't say "boy" and the fellow was an Afro American?
I had a similar experience once with a black guy who came into the dealership I was managing. I often say bud in a casual conversation, this was particular fellow flopped his shirt. He went on about how it is offensive to black people because it implies they are all the same and not individuals. I asked several black dudes at work and they said he was full of shit.
No but it does my head in a bit when people call me 'lad' or 'young en' especially when they arent a great deal older than me.
"bud" no, "buddy" is another story and I get it all the fucking time. I'm 29 but I look young for my age and I'm only 5'10" so maybe that plays into it too. I dunno.
I'm offended you breath the same air as I do…
You got some nerve calling him bud
What kind of store?
If I'm flying 1st class / business I wouldn't complain or anything but I'd definitely be surprised.
Some stores would have a similar effect to a pretentious prick on a bad day. But if you worked at a place like that you'd already know your clients.
So fuck him.
No way. Thats fucking stupid
A friend is a friend...a pal is a pal....but buddies sleep together.
Was he older than you? Might be a respect thing
I hate "hey guy"....its rare but I'll occasionally run into people in the northeast who use this as a greeting
I get called boss all the time
Better than being called "bossman" or "chief" i suppose lol.
MartialArtsMixed - Was he older than you? Might be a respect thingHe was upwards of 60. I work at RadioShack so maybe he thought I was some clueless dick calling him bud.
I called my dad "man" once in passing and he got pissed. I was in highschool though. Now as a man in his thirties he doesnt say anything anymore.
