Im in SA, Ive grown up with:
Fruitboxes (the Prima juice box style) and pop-tops or poppers both refer to the little bottle style drinks
Beer: schooner, pint
Potato cakes (scallops are a seafood??!!!!) , fritz, dagwood dog.
Oh, and the old "Milkbar" versus a "Deli". Deli all the way
What about duvet or quilt? I almost died with laughter when I was younger and my Aunty called a quilt a "duvet"; I thought it was a made up word haha!
I've never heard pony either! Weird... Also Quilt, Duvet sounds so weird to my ears.
Primas are just 'juice boxes' to me..
The poppers are 'pop tops' to me
My dad is Scottish so he calls all sorts of things different... So I'm used to having two meanings for some things
Off licence- is a bottle shop
Bobble- hair lackes/hair ties
I can't think of any others off the top of my head they are all so 'normal' to me I forget which ones aren't normal to everyone else!
Oh! My husband calls the kitchen bench 'breakfast bar' I thought and still do think its weird!
