Lost in Translation

After living here a year here are the new words and phrases we have heard. Which is funny because outside of the soda/pop/coke controversy everywhere we lived on the west coast really didn’t have any different words. (New York is a “soda” state)
waiting in line = waiting on line
garage sale = tag sale
shopping cart = shopping carriage
stroller = pram
purse = pocketbook
freeway = thruway
hoggie, submarine sandwich = wedge
