Canada is a little different than USA and we are using this to our advantage!!
Last week I was caught on the ice at Geordie's school. A couple of the father's had to help me out. One noticed the Georgia license plate and commented. I will admit to saying, 'yes' with a slight drawl.
But our real usage of the USA/Canadian difference is in parenting.
We have been known to say such things as;
"No, they do not allow that in Canada!"
"They do not have that in Canada!"
"Yeah, Canada, it's a little different and there are different rules"
So now, if we do not have something or say no to doing something Geordie automaticly thinks that Canada just does not have it;
Geordie was watching tv one day and needed to leave the room for a second;
Geordie: "Mummy, pause it please!"
Me: "Oh, sorry Geordie, there is no pause here."
Geordie: "UGH!!! They don't have pause in Canada?!?!"
