Haha! I learned my new thing for today! It’s awesome that I can chat with people across the world, and learn directly from them!

What do y’all call 👖 pants?

That’s so great! I think I do the same thing, except I usually have my hands in front of my face, asking to be told when it’s ok to look again!

Allow me. Pants are underwear in the UK. Smalls, boxers, unmentionables, etc. Trousers, often called a pair of trousers even though it is only one piece of clothing is the British English name for what Americans call pants. Pantaloons is the root word.

As Light said...
Trousers (or Jeans if they're made of denim).


We are separated by a common language!

Wow.

You echo so well my own attitude concerning management of weather.

So true.

In French we call those "pantalons".

I know but Americans (just like the British!) love to bastardise language. And hey, screw those froggy snail-eating weirdos!


ETA The English have always had a love/hate relationship with the French. Speaking personally I love the French, their cooking, their culture and their manners. Paris sucks but so does London. French onion soup is the God of soups but I refuse to eat snails or frogs. There is a Michelin starred French chef in England (no crap!) and he revealed that the French call the English (traditionally at war with each other for hundreds of years through the ages) Roast Beef. What's worse? Being a frog or a cow?

Ha, Technically I am French Canadian, whose language, though called French, is drastically different from France. It's a bit like American English vs British English.

I get it. Have you seen the movie Bon Cop Bad Cop? It is hilarious and there is a version 2. Canadians are cool. Almost freezing in fact. Hold the poutine though, it's too weird...

Well I am Southern American (not to be confused with South American😁)..... and will now refer to my pants as pantaloons (minus an “O” at times), daks, and increase the use of jeans.

Y’all keep teaching me! I’m gonna expand my word bank and mess with the natives!

What do you guys call soda? The locals here call it “pop”. I’ve always referred to all sodas as “coke”.

To all of our East Coasters, West Coasters, UK/Scottland Coasters and Coasters all around the world that going through dangerous weather events, my thoughts and concerns are with all of you at this time.

I'm a Third Coaster myself but since I live near NASA that makes me a Space Coaster.

Another silly language thing. I ordered coke in a bar while there with a Dutch friend. Both the Dutch friend and the bartender looked at me kinda weird. Then my Dutch friend told me if you ask for coke in the Netherlands you ask for coc aine which obviously is not something they sell openly over the counter. That was not my intention (I hate hard drugs!) but I never made that mistake again. They call coca-cola cola here.

Doe mij maar een cola.

Embarrassing but kinda funny at the same time. (I hate drugs, some of them apparently involve you sticking them up your nose, painful at best)

Yup, Bon Cop Bad Cop is a cult movie up here.

You might be right about the poutine, but in our defence, it IS pretty good.

I'm not sure it's a good idea to refer to things as "coke" with law enforcement officers around though.

“Would you mind to grab me a coke from the fridge?”

Do I sound like a user asking that? 😂

In some areas in the USA, that would probably be motivation enough for the police to a violent, aggressive and forceful arrestation.

Yeah, we have some of those around here. Which adds to the reasons why I don’t fraternize with law enforcement.
