I love the look of horror and disgust when you say you ask where the "toilet" is when in America!!!!Whys it called the "Bathroom" theres no bath in a public toilet!!!!

My boyfriend, who's from Ireland, still asks where the 'toilet' is when he visits here. It sounds so odd to me - like he's asking the waiter where the actual toilet bowl is. And try as I might, I simply can't say "Where's the toilet?" in Ireland; tub or no, I always ask about the whereabouts of the bathroom.

And to further add to the list:

full vs drunk
full up vs full (as in having eaten too much)
aye vs yes

I know this one is slang...

snogging = kissing

The first time I read/heard it - that's not the image that came to mind...

I know! Neal once told me about how he and his friends would try to 'snog' girls at high-school parties, and I was thoroughly offended!

All this time I thought snogging was the same as scrumping!

So did I - but the way the post read, it wasn't making sense if that had been the definition. I asked Tina adn Phil. Though, "scrumping" doesn't sound any better!

I know what snogging is, but what's scrumping?

had one of my northerner friends from england call a cast, like the one you get on your arm when you break it, a "pot", which we all found very amusing, none of the other English in the room even heard of it called that before, guess it was another one of those "northerner" things.

Another favourite of mine" "keel eyed" = pissed= drunk
