European Thong

Weird how in Australia a thing is a type of shoe but in Europe and I presume North America it’s a genre of underwear. Could imagine some hilarious mixups!

Can you believe that Americans call trousers “pants”?

What’s with that?!

I don’t know, but it caused a lot of funny looks when I was telling my American workmates that I had a fetish for soiled pants!

I as an Englishperson use the terms trousers and pants interchangeably, thought everybody did.

Because then there’s your underpants, which are worn under your pants.

Just realised boxer shorts are called boxer shorts because they are like the shorts boxers wear

“I’ll just put my pants in the trunk!”

Leave that elephant alone, you crazy American!

This did happen to me when I was working in Australia.

I genuinely hadn’t heard them referred to as thongs before and was quite curious as to why I was being informed that they weren’t appropriate to wear in work.
