Do you ever accidentally call your friend a mug?

Yesterday, I called my friend a mug and she was confused. Has this ever happened to you?

No, because it means mosquito in my language. Why would I call a friend that.

Yes. Many a time infact. We exchange insults by calling each other mugs.

Not a single fuk is given.

No, because in Croatian it's like a wizard. The word is not used widely though, and I only hear it every once in a long while.

So in the Netherlands it would be all right to call Ferrero a mug

'Wizard' has long accent, while mug short one, I doubt anyone would get any meaning from the word here

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

True, but that's the closest meaning you get when calling someone a mug around here.

Well, it's a question mostly for British English speakers

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

When the hell did I say I was too scared? No one would understand if I said that and it would just make the conversation awkward you mug.

May I assume that you want to have Federer's babies now?

Well that's precisely the reason why you're a beta male.

An alpha would not give a single fuk and say what he wants.
