Dood!

What’s with “pinoys”?! First there was “pare”… then “tsong”… then “bro”… so on and so forth.

The latest version of this installment is the word, “DUDE”. Somehow, quite a number of male pinoys think that when you use the word “dude” to refer to a male friend or acquaintance in public, they’d be associated with people that belong to the upper-middle/upper echelon of society. Duh?!

It doesn’t follow, DUDE! Some people don’t even pronounce the damn word right!

“Hey dood, I’m going to Eastwood, dood! Pucha pare, let’s drink some San Mig Light and check out da chicks later, dood!”

Aaaarrrgggghhh! Cut it out! It’s a friggin act!

C’mon guys. Just face it… Some pinoys can get away with it… and some CAN’T. You know who you guys are… especially when you’re using the lingo and you know deep down inside that you’re not used to it. Don’t be posers. Don’t embarrass yourself anymore than you already have. It’s pathetic.

If someone refers to you as “dude”, DON’T feel compelled to use the same slang to call back. You don’t have to reciprocate similarly. Be yourself.

It’s weird hearing it especially in places where you don’t expect it to be heard… like say, Divisoria… They’re all over… just listen to the FM radio! Notice how some callers pretend to be “sosyal” when they know they’re “on air” and being spoken to by a disc jock.

“Yeah hi, dood… can I make a request? I like da song “Honey My Lab So Sweet” or “Yeye Vonnel” by April Boy Regino. Oh, tenks a lot, dood!”…

Bleh!

Stick to what you’ve been used to. Don’t join the bandwagon… there’s no pressure.

Using the word “dude” doesn’t translate to a person’s abundance of well-breeding.

    So true… DUDE! ahaha… it doesn’t just stop with copying lingo. I often see people with “retainers”, brandishing them off like these are a tangible way to show status.
