I think sometimes the title of "young man" refers to a derogative appellation. In the context below, I surmise that the young man might be used improperly. Do you agree with me?
As a young man, I really feel that it's a good time for us to live and to learn.
nothing derogatory there ori
No, young man is rarely derogatory. I suppose it has been used by an adult scolding a child as in "Listen here young man", but it is not a derogatory term in general. It is often used as a sweet term as in "he is such a nice young man".
I would love to be called young man. (It has been a long time).
I hate being called "Hon" by a waitress.
'Cuz he's too old and grumpy to be called 'Hon'.
Yeah. Farmerman always gives me an impression that he is grumpy.
I think it's because of his avatar. Ori, do you know who is pictured on Farmerman's avatar?
Looks like Shackleton...just after he crawled to land in Tierra del Fuego, but no, it's not him
You mean to tell me that's not farmer? Humdinger.
I always took that for granted..
Ori, Ulysses Grant was very grouchy about the time he defeated Robert E Lee in the American Civil War...tired and spent....sorta like Farmerman on a bad day .
the money is what made him grouchy.
havin his photo on the fiddy and all...
