This blog has been inspired by a recent comment, where someone said they would not do business with someone who could not spell correctly. This person, I think, resides in the US, whereas I reside in Australia.

Hope this blog educates many of you, but also if you travel to Australia are prepared for the differences.

Some words have a U in them, like Colour, Favour, Honour, Labour.

Others have an S, instead of a Z, like Authorised, Legalised, Organised.

In Australia, many of our words are RE, whereas US they are ER, e.g. TheatRE.

Here in Australia, when someone says Thongs, this means a pair of open toed footwear, in US they are called Flip Flops.

Thong here is referred to a G String.

Lollies, called Candy in US, but Sweets in UK.

Garbage—Australia (AUS), Trash –US.

Mobile Phones–Aus, Cell Phones–US and New Zealand.

Ute, short for Utility–Aus, Pick Up– US.

Caravan–Aus, Trailer–US.

Trailers in Australia are for either a small 2 wheeled unit hooked to a tow bar of a vehicle, or a dual or tri wheeled unit for Semis.

Sandwiches are usually made with 2 slices of bread, with fillings, in US they are usually a roll type, please correct me if I am wrong.

Hot Chips–Aus, Fries–US.

Soft Drink–Aus, Soda Pop–US.

Power Points–Aus, Outlets–US.

Public Transport- Aus, Public Transportation—US

Pancakes—Aus, Flapjacks—US.

Boot—Aus, Trunk—US.

Lift—Aus, Elevator—US.

Biscuits—Aus, Cookies—US.

Jumper—Aus, Sweater—US.

Glove Box—Aus, Glove Compartment—US.

Petrol/Fuel—Aus, Gas—US.

Clothing sizes can be different too, not sure exactly how.

I’m sure there are many more differences, however, these are just some, this oldie can remember currently.

Open to others if anyone thinks of any.

Multiple Incomes are the way of the future. I'm a 50+ Transfemale, whose life has not been great, lied to about various things. I've also been lied about, which is very unfair. Hatched in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. Knew at 4, in 1970, that I was a gurl, but unable to do anything about it. Used & abused by others, including being molested from 6-14 by a relative, viciously assaulted, and left to die at 16, I was left infertile, with little interest in anything remotely physical. I have recently learnt because of this, I suffer from Philophobia. Wanted to be a Journalist, but because of assault, unable to continue my schooling. Because of molestation and assault, I have major trust issues. To keep the peace & make my father happy, did what he wanted, except join Defence Forces, Guns Scare ME. I have written & Self-Published 13 eBooks, Link below. I moved to Melbourne Australia February 2015, which has been good. Have since left there. My goal is to raise enough funds to finally Establish MCC. Seeking 250,000 winners to invest $25 AUD each. Once 200,000 have paid their ONCE OFF JOINING FEE, each will receive the following: 4 Shares in MCC, 1 Pink Candle Club Membership I plan to employ Humans & Train them in Transferrable Skills. I also plan to employ humans suffering from illness & disease, so they have flexibility for appointments. MCC will observe COVID safe practices long after they have been discontinued by others. All Team Members will be required to wear PPE when in the Production area. I hope to have a custom Mobile Candle Making Unit constructed so we can travel Australia, making candles on site for our VIC's. Shareholders/PCCM's will be eligible to spend upto 14 days/nights travelling with us Shareholders will share 80% of Annual After Tax profit, paid early November each year, hopefully starting once we have been operating for a full Australian Financial Year.
