Nah, Nottingham is "youth". As in, "Alright Youth?". You could be 96 years of age and they'll still call you "youth".

Live in the NW - Warrington, spent two months in London, 8 months in Stoke-on-trent then back to warrington (stoke use the 'Duck' too)

I use a few:- Love, fella, hun(ny), babe, bird and there is most prob a few more...

Love: is normally aimed at the old ladies

Hun(ny): is aimed at the younger ones

Fella: is aimed at men, that I don't know; really but do? or I can't remember there names at first till i've chatted to them for 5mins and then remembered.

Bird: I call the missus this every now and then (its a personal joke between us)

Mucker: is another one, normally call my son by this.

Leicestershire (where I originate) is duck, or me duck. Annoyed bar maids generally go "Quack Quack" at you, well to me anyway...lol

Now I'm in Surrey, no idea. Been here 10 years and still no one speaks to me..... Wink

I just bought some paint in a local hardware store near San Francisco. The woman cashier called me 'sweetie.' There went what was left of my manhood!
