I say pop instead of soda which confuses people sometimes. I also say Aunt differently than everyone else here in New England. They say Awunt, and I say Ant and it gets confusing. xD

I refer to them as soft drinks personally.

Hahaha that's quite funny.
It must be my Australian linguistics, it is to my understanding that it's staff in America and other countries but since I was little it's always been stave.

I have no idea if you're American or not but hey.
Other words you might find confusing from the Australian dictionary:
Boot - Trunk (like in a car)
Biscuit - Cookie
G-banger - Thong
Thong - Sandal I think? like on your feet at the beach shah.
Then there's the many synonyms for beer, hello, friend, not-friend, urination and female significant other, which are all very.. inappropriate for an internet forum.
Thong meaning flip-flop is one that always weirds me out. DON'T CALL IT THAT PEOPLE

Flip flop! That's what I was thinking of. I dunno Toujours, I mean America thinks the Brits drive on the wrong side of the road even though America is the only country (to my knowledge) that drives on the right. I dunno if that's maybe saying something..

Yeah I have soft drink as well, or just the name of the beverage hah.

Nope, most people drive on the right. Look at the picture from Wikipedia!

Red = right, blue = left.

I say "coke" (a lot of people do where I live) instead of soda or pop or cola...so it confuses a lot of people...idk I guess I just picked it up when I grew up. But when I say it I mean it broadly (like soda) instead of a coke specifically. Its weird. I know.

Oh wow, I didn't know that. I knew Europe and America drove on the right but since Australia and the UK drove on the left, I just thought the former two were odd ones out.

Wow, I didn't know that either. That's insane.

Finally, something where I actually am the majority xD

Then again, most of what I watch originates in Japan so maybe that's why I see so much driving on the left xD

Imagine crossing a border between two countries that drove on the opposite sides. That would be quite interesting.

Yeah I figured the US was the odd one out till I looked it up too. My original post said "there are a few others, like" and then I looked it up and was like "holy crap we're actually in the majority on this one".

It's okay, you can still make fun of our imperial system of measurement.

I call it a eighty-way front-end car accident.

And whatever, I just go with whatever. See, like not complaining about mm and mL in China

Apparently they just put up signs and when you leave border patrol you leave on the opposite side. Kind of like an uncontrolled intersection I guess?

Wait what, they actually have countries right next to each other that drive on the opposite side of the road? O.o

I got to drive on the other side of the road once. I kept turning on the windshield wipers when I wanted to signal. I can't imagine switching sides mid-drive.

I have enough trouble driving in general, let alone driving on the other side of the road :(

People have said that I drive slow, like a little old lady. Which kinda makes sense, since I'm a big fan of the big old cars that are popular with little old ladies

We have some singe-lane one-way roads on campus where for some reason people tend to end up going the wrong way on x_x Terrifying when you see someone come around a corner up ahead and come towards you :x

I can't imagine driving on the wrong side of the road. Just reaching down for the gearstick with my right hand instead of my left... nope, that's just too weird! Well, it would be weirder if there was no gearstick at all. Driving in the US/Canada would be the weirdest for me, personally.

Driving a Prius would be really weird for you then :P

No gear shift, no keys, and you don't have to buy gas every week.
