It's the glue that keeps our mateship strong and our beers cold - there is a Bro Code that is more than just a bunch of rules, it's a way of life that defines what it means to be a true blue mate in Australia. Blokes Advice member, Paul C, recently asked the group:
Never be disrespectful to another man I'm front of his kids or Family no matter your personal disgreement with him.
Never take your leftover beers out of the mates fridge..
Always piss away the skid marks left in a toilet.
Nod down to someone you don't know and nod up to someone you do know.
Never bring a camera to a bachelor party.
Under no circumstances may two men share an umbrella.
If a mate tells ya they are struggling with life shit while out on the piss, follow up with them the next morning. Bring round a KFC feed or get them out of the house for a chat it could mean the difference between seeing them next at the pub or at a funeral.
When you’re driving, and a bloke (or a non-bloke) let’s you in in traffic, ALWAYS chuck out the “thanks mate”wave.
Don't hook up with your mates ex.
Never trust a bloke with two first names.
Ya word should actually mean something when you give your word on something.
Never shake a blokes hand whilst sitting down. Firm shake with eye contact.
If you have to borrow a mates vehicle, always return it with a full tank of juice.
Never sleep with your best mates sister, brother or dad.
