    I so wanna start calling guys lads, but with my accent i will probably just sound silly.

    I honestly wouldn't care. Sure, it would probably sound a bit cringy but it doesn't bother me.

    The few times I've heard foreign people use more sorta regional stuff it's sounded really nice, but it's always been like eastern european women rather than Americans. I can't really imagine american working with it too well but you may as well try for a laugh.

    I had a Canadian chemistry teacher and she called us "lads", it didn't sound half bad to be honest. :lol:

    I somehow called my neighbor "mate" today. I have absolutely no idea where that came from. :confused: I left the UK a fair few years ago.
