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 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!
THAT'S NOT NEXT SATURDAY THAT'S THIS SATURDAY! She made me feel like an idiot. I knew I was right lol.
I say... 'On Saturday' if I mean the one coming up or 'next weekend' for the one after lol
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!
