He bolts to the surface with a speeding boat bearing down and you BOTH get hit by the boat while trying to save his ass.

I must be a bad buddy cause I'd let his ass bolt to the surface as I did a slow ascent to see if he was okay.

Interesting ideas - My thought:

You know you're a bad buddy when you are out of air.

You know you've got a bad dive buddy, when he gets tired of towing the float and snaps it to the back of your BC, without letting you know.

...your dive buddy asks you who your dive buddy is.....

...when your dive buddy asks, "Which side does the regulator go on?"

That actually happened to me. The guy left a trail of bubbles below him as he bolted from 100 ft. (Yes really, He literally left a bubble trail on the way up) I did the normal acent but by the time I got to the surface the DM on the boat had already hauled him out of the water. (He's OK now)

You know you've got a bad (or great) dive buddy when you're totally task-loaded practicing skills and they throw an OOA at you... then while you're sharing, they take their mask off so you have to manage both people's ascents.

I love my buddies.

When he's the last one in by 20 minutes and the first one back aboard by 30.

You know it's a bad buddy when you hear, "Okay, last time, I promise, tell me again what this whole air sharing thing is about"

.... he floods your mask for fun and kicks stingrays with his fins in order to "liven things up a bit"...

Sounds like you have a sociopath on your hands, not a dive buddy.

The best buddy act I've ever seen was once when I was diving on the GBR out of Cairns. There were 3 ozzies diving together and they would terrioze each other. They would go up and rip each others mask off or rip the reg out of your mouth. One guy tried to shut one of the others air off. I was glad I wasn't one of their mates. Don't need any buddies to come rip my gear off.

Yes, sarcasm is wonderful, but can they be trusted not to break under interrogation?

I've got buddies that will pull a reg or remove a mask, but it's a training thing... NOT a "give each other crap" thing.

Maybe you're right. Be careful who you buddy with! You've got an obligation to them, but don't assume they know they have an obligation to you!

Ok look if you're going to start talking about us like that then you could at least put the letters in alphatbetical order like they should be. I have CDO and I'm proud of it.
