    I was trying not to laugh out loud in the office but I lost it at this point. I just love how casual it sounds, because a giant guinea pig wouldn't be surprising at all!

    When I was 18, I went to my sisters hens night and everyone had t shirts with little miss something on them. I thought it was great that I was little miss discombobulated.... Until I found out AFTER my shirt was made what it meant and had to wear it. oops!

    That a distinction is a good grade and has nothing to do with detention or being in trouble and not passing. (Just started uni this year- still learning the grading system)

    When DH & I first moved to Aus, we were living with my parents and they gave me their second car (A Daewoo Automatic) and I was working in town which is around 45 mins drive away.

    One morning I got in the car and tried to start it and nothing happened and I was crying and panicking and freaking out......Dad came out, put the car into park and started it

    I had only ever had Manuals before and had very rarely driven Autos. I had NO idea they wouldn't start if they weren't in park LOL


    DH was convinced the term was 'pouty mouth' not potty mouth and he thinks it is 'reached' instead of 'retched' when vomiting.

    I have told SO many people about the iPhone thing. I only found it when googling why my battery was draining so fast.

    I only found out at 30 weeks pregnant how they measure how dilated you are. I'd assumed they had some kind of tool, not just their fingers!

    I had a c section....

    Some more have come back to me

    I was at work and we had a new girl that just started.
    Me and a few others were trying to make conversation..

    Work colleague : "Do you have any brothers or sisters?"

    New girl: "Yes I have a Twin brother"

    Work colleague: "Oh wow!! Are you identical Twins?!"

    Every one was silent..
    ------

    When I was little I came running inside telling mum that we had a Penguin on the Fence... It was a Magpie..

    I'm a Hairdresser and the amount of girls we have at work who write Hair Dye down as Hair Die amazes me..
    I even had one girl go blue in the face arguing with me about it.. She told me "Dye" was a slang, As in "I felt so sick I thought I was going to Dye"

    My old boss was South African, she had only just moved to Australia,
    over there they call a hot water system a geyser, as in "Geezer"
    Well it Stopped working and her DH replaced it but the old one needed to be taken away, it was very old and heavy.
    They were renting so they didn't need to replace it them selves but they did any way...
    Well she called her real-estate agent and said to him
    "I need someone to come out and remove this Old Geyser from our house, It's causing us a lot of trouble, the Geyser is just sitting there attracting Mice.
    My husband tried to remove it from the property but the old thing is to heavy!"

    The real-estate agent thought she had an old man squatting at her house
    Apparently the phone conversation went on for quite a while until one of them clicked that there was a miss understanding..

    She also didn't understand "Thongs" her local RSL had a sign up saying "No Thongs" they thought they found it funny that people could be refused entry over their choice of undergarments and took photos of the sign and sent them back home to family who also found it funny.. Wasn't until she had been living in Australia for a while that she realized "Thongs" to us are a type of shoe not underwear.
