Different things we call each other in the English language

In the English language I like the different labels friends call each other when they are referring to someone, or trying to get someones attention. There are many different things people call each other, it could be depending where they are from! 

Mate 
EXAMPLE - How are you today mate? 
It is English slang for the word friend, often used in Australia or the UK.

Often used to label close friends, and normally a cool friend. 

Lad (man)/Lass (woman)
EXAMPLE - Let's go to the pub with the lads! 
A lad is a male who specialises in creating and distributing exquisite banter, a good friend. It is the same for lass (woman)

Geezer

A geezer is a descriptive word in the UK which is used to define a mans characteristics. A geezer will be found usually out side a pub with a pint in his hand on match day.
