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!

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!
