    In other parts of Aus they may be yiros, but here they are marketed as kebabs.. and even in Melb I see them sold as kebabs.

    What bothers me is people refering to daycare as "kindy". To me "kindy" means "pre-school", a structured school-like environment, whereas at daycare, kids can arrive and leave at any time. I understand they have a kindy-room for the older kids at daycare, and have a more structured educational program throughout the middle of the day, so it blurs the line a little bit, but I still do not see the whole thing being referred to as "kindy". I however am happy for people to say that a child does kindy at their daycare.

    I guess that too is where are you or where are you from to what you call. I me kindy is pre prep (pre preparatory) aka is school/care 2years prior to grade one and preschool to me us is prep (preparatory) aka school/care 1 year prior to grade one

    I know someone who says 'next weekend' when its 'this weekend'

    Like on monday, she'll go "what are you up to next weekend?"but means this weekend, 5 days away. Not next weekend meaning the weekend after this weekend.

    Drives me nuts.

    No...I haven't been drinking!

    Omg I'm not the only one! MIL msged me the other day saying there is a BBQ for SIL's birthday next Saturday. I say oh that's good coz we have an engagement party to go to this Saturday. She said 'so they are on the same day?' I said 'no you said next Saturday' and she said 'yeah the next Saturday we come to.'
    THAT'S NOT NEXT SATURDAY THAT'S THIS SATURDAY! She made me feel like an idiot. I knew I was right lol.

    I say 'next Saturday' for the one coming up. I say it that way because it IS the next Saturday we will have. If I was referring to the following week I would say 'Saturday after next'.

    I say "this coming Saturday" and then "Saturday week" for the following Saturday - DH always gives me an odd look though as it's not a term he grew up with.

    I also say greyleads and am never sure as some classes I've worked in in WA call them lead pencils, but others just 'writing pencils'.

    I get caught out more with zooms/windups/twist crayons - that one also seems to vary school to school!
