HEY CANADIANS!

what are some words yous guys use that are different than what we say in the states. Yesterday I learned that you freaks call a garbage disposal a garburator. Actually has a nice ring to it. Think I'm gonna steal it. 

 

What else yous got? 

First thing that came to mind that I noticed when I lived down south is, we don't use the terms freshman or sophomore etc. Its grade 9, grade 11.

But I guess maybe more towards what you're asking might be we say liscense plate, you say tags. Tags makes more sense.

That's all I've got right meow

I have to go the WASH ROOM.

I live in Florida and I hear 'license plate' more often than 'tag'.  I think they are interchangeable.

Maybe it was a Virginia thing

We are both pink on the inside.

We say Pop, you say Soda

Op is a faggot gets thrown around a lot 

A 375 mL bottle of hard liquor (especially if shaped to fit in a pocket) is called a Mickey.  As in ‘I got a six pack of beer and a Mickey of a rye, and I’m ready to give ‘er’.

They call cheetos cheezies for some reason!

We call the trunk of a car the "boot" and an elevator a lift. We also call cigarettes "fags"

This is great. don't think we have a word for it. as a kid i think we actually called them by their number. Like we'd say get me a 375 mL of ice 101. or a 200 mL...

i remember as a kid we would often refer to kids as being 9th graders , 10th graders, etc. you don't really hear that anymore. makes sense to differentiate from college kids.
