    Witty bantar is the highest form of intelligence. Maybe you don't have sufficient levels of intelligence to participate in said bantar, and so find it annoying.
    I don't mind banter. I mind offensive, disgusting actions like pissing in plant pots or wrecking public property.

    I'm not a lad and I have never claimed to be one, but if the majority of males posting on this thread class themselves as 'lads' I don't particularly want to be classed as a 'lad'. Sounds kind of idiotic some off the stuff 'lads' get upto after an evenings drinking.

    You mean happy, confident, popular, socially competent, physically fit young men?

    Yes I can't see what they see in them either. Why can't they go for the skinny virgin in the corner with the rampant superiority complex staring passive aggressively at everyone.
    lol this guy.

    I agree though.

    It's just another hater bandwagon the filthy basement dwellers and big ol jelly haters jump on because they hate being socially inept.

    Just getting drunk and going out doesn't make you a lad. To be a lad, there has to be some banter and FIFA in there too. Lads don't drink anything than fosters and budweiser, so if you drink vodka you're out.

    Do you look like this?

    Aren't they all like 12?

    What is wrong with these "lads" that makes them so hated?

    Is it that they are enjoying themselves and you envy them?

    Nope, you've put that bit in yourself. You'll find lads in every uni in the country, from London Met to Oxbridge.

    No. These are the people who will become successful because they are confident.
    I would be sceptical that 'lads' exist at the better universities. I'd imagine it's just posh boys delivering the tricks they learned at their private all boys schools. They'd run a mile from a fight with rough working class lads.

    I'm not convinced on this second point. Generally I'd find those at the top in terms of people in their 20s aren't lads, they spend too much time working hard to engage in the lad culture. Success with women perhaps, as women love lads/bad boys, but not so much career wise.

    There is actually no way to measure "success". However I would measure it by fulfillment and happiness. Socialising is a big part of life and even getting to a good point in ones career. Without those skills there is only so far that one can get in life.

    Personally, I think guys act like lads as women are more likely to have a ONS with a lad, they might not be relationship material (that goes for the 'lads' and the girls that sleep with them) but doesn't matter had sex.
    Aren't guys lads aswell??

    Because as she's already said, excess drink leads to idiotic behaviour such as pissing in plant pots, defacing or damaging property

    This. I have nothing against people drinking one or two but getting smashed, damaging people's stuff for "banter" and pissing everyone off is just really childish

    It doesn't always lead to such activities. I can be very good fun if you are with the right people. I recommend you trying it sometime.

    Being drunk doesn't mean you have to act like a bit of an idiot, whenever I've been drunk I've actually been able to remember what I did, which according to some people would mean that I wasn't actually drunk. This lad culture seems to have been conjured to make getting pissed and smashing stuff funny. The one time a person pissed out of their head smashed my cars wing mirror in I've hated this culture even more. Being drunk doesn't mean you have to behave like an idiot.
