Today's word is just a straight difference in use, but in my experience it causes alot of blank looks as still I use it regularly.
"BIN" = Trash Can
So I will say to one of the kids in school - " bring that over here and put it in the bin". Resulting in them just staring at me blankly, until it suddenly dawns on me they don't have a clue what I mean!!
We also refer to what goes in the 'bin' i.e. 'trash'......as 'rubbish'!
Trash just isn't a word we use alot in the UK and I don't really know why, but then I rarely hear the word 'bin' used here!
