We call it a T.V, sheesh. But we say garbage instead of trash...

In the midwest we alternate between garbage and trash, I use both.

I usually say garbadge, but I say trash occasionally...once i used the american spelling for a word on a test (not trash or garbage, something else), and it was marked wrong...I argued about it and finally won...i just had to write out the "proper" spelling 5 times, and the word was marked right. That was a rather pointless post...

An outrage, you should have been marked right, you are half American and all!!! Besides our way is the best way, less letters to have to remember...

We're allowed to use american spelling if we want to now (the spell check on microsoft word thinks canadian spellings are wrong) as long as it is the correct american spelling!

Funny my spell check tends to think both are right since I have accidentally spelled it the other way before. I use word.

What do you have your spell check set on? I know I can change the language on mine (since I used to have to write papers in French for class).
