1. Everyone’s a “kid” until they’re like 85.
A typical conversation heard while out on the weekends. “‘ey kid. What’s good kid? Let me tell ya something kid. Whad’ya say kid? Yeah whatever, go eff yaself kid.” All said out of love of course. You could replace kid for chief or buddy too on special occasions.
2. Your mom would send you to the “packie” and it wasn’t racist.
A Package store is a packie, like a gas station or convenience shop.
