I am sure that your derogatory reference to old fogey was not made with any intent in mind and I am sure it rolled off the end of your tongue without you giving it any thought what-so-ever and I am sure that your apology has been accepted by most of the older members of the forum. You can see how emotive such a statement as old fogey (a dull old fashioned person) male or female can be where as Nigel's reference to geezer on the other hand simply means (old one) but in terms of London slang old geezer would be a reference to an old man who on the other hand is far from dull but in fact street wise.
