Am I The Only One Who Is Sick Of "Lad Culture"

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 

It seems like everyone I meet these days is a "lad", and just says very rude things to people in the name of "banter". It seems awfully regressive to me, a sign of the times I suppose.

I just read this. They sent a young man to go and spend some time with these "lads". He seemed to get on with them quite well, but the whole experience sounds quite horrific to me.

 

What's the deal with this lad culture? Is it just a phase or is it just the way things are headed?

The Lad culture in the UK is just awful..

Everybody is trying to be Jack the Lad telling you how drunk he was last year in Crete...

Football, lager ,women and very little culture or intelligence is required...

Everybody is calling you mate and love ditching insults to everyone around under the "It's a joke mate policy"...

At my workplace , if you do not talk football or golf with your colleagues/managers they have nothing to talk about...

It is becoming like the weather , another English obsession..

I despise lad culture. It's still everywhere over here. A sad hangover from the '90s.

 

Zoo and Nuts reading, Carling swigging, badly modified car driving neanderthals.

 

Worst of all, calling everyone 'geeza'.

Nothing I enjoy more than hanging with my lads.

No surprise, it's the 30-year-olds who seem to have a problem with it. laugh.gif

You will notice the stupidity of lad culture when you will be a mature gentlemen..

Being with your mates ,friends is one thing abd being proud of acting like beer louts as a different matter.

No, I can't stand it. Sort of people who celebrate St. Patrick's day but not St. George's day despite not having any Irish blood in them at all other than they like to drink Guinness once a year. A spell in the army doing their national service would sort them out.

I never came across this lad culture in the UK when I was living there. Is it a recent or London type thing, or perhaps some sensationalist crap that was invented by The Sun or News of the World?

The article just seems to be about young people getting drunk and being stupid with their mates. That's hardly a new thing, they been doing that since time immemorial. It happens in China as well.

So what is the difference between a lad and a fraternity college kid?
