American words

Post by MikaylaPeace on Sat Aug 27, 2011 12:21 am

its strange, over here we use 'mobile' and 'crisps', but in America etc, they use 'cell phone' and 'potato chips'. Its gonna be strange when i move, everyone saying 'cell phone' and suddenly i say 'mobile' lol.

I think in Britain right? This is in the wrong section btw. Anyways yeah that's interesting. In america we do say cell phone and potato chips :] We use mobile when if we're using instant chatting instead of being on the computer and using our phones to instant chat (we call that mobile)
