In my world, everyone is "mate" Pol.....from my wife and daughter, to my old man, to the guy who makes my coffee or pulls my beer, to the stranger on the internet, all the way through to people who are really my "mates".....used gender neutrally to include both men and women......some of said women whom I have mated with, though most who I have not. :-)
Christ, it's all I have to protect me from the embarrassment of being feeble with names.
