Potato cakes (a scollop is seafood)
Couch in the lounge or living room
Thongs or flip flops

You wear bathers to the pool
Textas for drawing
School bag (my grandma from QLD called her suitcase her port, we called our garage our car port... Weird)
Back of car is the boot (heard ppl use trunk or port)
Tissues (hate hearing Kleenex)
Toilet paper (not toilet tissue tho lol)

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.

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!!
