Mike,

we use the terms 'pop' for soft drinks and 'loo' for the toilet, in our neck of the woods...north west England.

I still have trouble with the boot and bonnet on cars when I visit the States. I once had puncture on a car I hired over there and when I called the rental company for recovery, I told them it was on the 'the rear nearside tyre ...err no it's offside here isn't it...the tyre was (used English colloquial term beginning with b and ending in ...locksed, meaning it's no good) and I'm stuck on the hard shoulder of the motorway", which was met with a long puzzled silence.

Steve.
