    I would call the 'show' a 'fair'. And I call a toasted sandwich a 'grill cheese.' It's like we speak a completely different language!

    Are you a generation X-er? It seems to have fizzled out after Gen Y it seems, as another qld'er who was 21yrs old said she'd never heard of it either.

    There's been a few ladies on here from Qld including a teacher who used the word school port.

    I used to work with a kiwi girl and she kept going on about the chulli bun. Wtf? Wtf is a chulli bun? A chilli bun? Huh. Eventually she had to explain she was saying chilly bin or esky. God it was confusing!

    I'm a Victorian living in WA so endlessly having to learn new names for things!

    I submit exhibit A into evidence in the 'jaffle' case.


    I call them Jaffles if sealed on the edges, toasties if flat and squashed together.

    We had bags and bag racks lol but was talking to DH who is 4 years older and he's heard and called then ports and port racks. Either i just didn't pay enough attention or its not commonly used anymore

    DS has been to 2 different QLD schools now and both have them have called the bag areas port racks. I still find it odd lol. I grew up in Canberra. I also correct DH when he refers to uni as college. To me college is year 11 and 12 for ACT or a private secondry school.

    Once a lady at work (I was visiting with my 8 week old) asked if she could nurse my baby. I was like 'what?!'. I thought she meant breast feed, not a cuddle!!

    You're almost exactly the same as me (wonder if we grew up in roughly the same area? lol) except when I hear the term 'battered sav' I can't help but think of Roy and HG during the Sydney Olympics commentating the mens gymnastics
