    I still call them hair bobbles...never noticed nobody else did!

    Oh and I am in Melb and I'm sure when I order DH a beer it's a pot or a pint?
    Rollers were really popular at my high school in QLD, no one else I ask has ever heard of them!

    Oh and 'milk bars' are newsagents or corner shops to me. A milk bar sounds like it should be one of those old fashioned milkshake places lol

    33, live in Melbs, have lived a lot in Sydney, born in Scotland.

    Pints, pots, toasted sandwich (Mum calls them Brevilles), vacuum (mum: Hoover), potato cake (we called them scallops when I was living in Sydney), couch (in the lounge room or living room), doona (my extended family call it a duvet), a quilt is like a throw that just looks nice, thongs, bathers (mum: swimming costume), esky.

    I had some relos out from Scotland recently and they kept saying "trousers" to DS1 and laughed when I said we call them pants. Pants to them are undies. He was TTing at the time so it was a bit confusing. They also took him to the park and asked if he wanted to go down the chute (slide - slippery dip when I lived in Sydney).

    They also brought over a t-shirt for DS2 that says he's as cool as an ice lolly (icy pole).

    Dad used to call dressing gowns "housecoats". WTF?

    I went into target the other day looking for underwear and I was asking the lady where the pants were and she directed me to trousers. I got very confused until I remembered you guys call them pants lol
