    Oh, you have pints!! Awesome... I thought it was a British thing!

    I grew up calling bathers togs.. but then just stopped when I was about 12 and have called them bathers ever since.

    Footy to us MEANS AFL (we don't say are you going to the AFL or the Aussie Rules match, we say footy) so therefore rugby is rugby and soccer is soccer.

    It always used to amuse me when he would go on and on at my sister about what we call things, because he had grown up calling it something else

    Eg- what we call primas:

    Attachment 34767

    (And not just that brand, any type of juice in a box)
    He would bang on and on about them NOT being called Prima's, because that was the brand- they were known to him as popper's. This is what I grew up calling a popper:

    Attachment 34768

    And of course, we would argue that we call things by brand names all the time- Thermos, Esky etc.


    So tell me- what do you find hard to believe that other people think is a perfectly common word or noun?
    I am in Vic - first one is a prima and second I would call a pop top.
