    Is it regional slang or is it used all over the US?

    I'd say all over. I've heard it a lot, in different places.

    I think it's heard all over too, but by the young and very colloquial.
    Do you mean it in this sense?
    We bought books, pens, paper and what not (apd., etc. and so on)?

    Good to know.

    I guess it is similar to czech:

    Koupili jsme knihy, pera, papíry a tak vůbec.

    Here's one for you:


    An example; When are you guys going to the game?

    Guys becomes interchangable between Ceska & Cesko :shock:

    It's not proper but it is accepted.

    Very true PGN

    'Guys' can refer to a group of people, two or more, and the gender is not
    What are you guys up to?
    Can refer to males, females, or mix.
