    I'm a kiwi so everyone gets a laugh whenever I speak. I can't even say 'this' or 'fridge' let alone jandals, chilly bin, vivid, hot dog, duvet or twink without someone having a dig

    And of course a "dairy" is what NZers call a "convenience store".

    I get ribbed for my pronunciation of Subaru - soo-BAR-oo vs soob-er-roo.

    I'm from NSW originally and we used to call them fruitboxes, not poppers.

    DH can't cope with the fact that everyone else calls them milkbars, not Delis. A deli is where you get meat products. Lol. Darn Perthies!

    Yep - flip flops.

    And I always say sofa instead of couch. I hadn't heard 'lounge' until I moved here either. Lounge is the room, not the sofa!
