comment Words to address young (male) people with?
Midwest here. I think buddy, man, and dude are all perfectly fine for male-to-male communication. They seem a bit strange for a female to address a young male as such. I think the female equivalent would be to exclude the term altogether (i.e. "Excuse me, could you help me...") or use sir. Given the context of older generations addressing younger, I think young man is the most appropriate here.

comment Etymology of “manhole”
There may be some history behind using man in the word manhole, but its usage now is gender neutral (like man-hours).
