24, I don't know about you, but for me, my words are chosen to properly convey my thoughts, not in an attempt to confuse and annoy others, and lead to them misinterpting what I am saying

So you're saying I should change my vocabulary because underwear manufacturers decided to call uncomfortable panties a word that was universally known for decades as footwear? I grew up calling 'flip flops', 'thongs', as that's what my generation learned. I find it hilarious that younger generations get annoyed at my 'historical' term. Should I also change calling the pound symbol on the phone, to calling it a hashtag so younger folk will know what I'm referring to?

Tell her a thong is Australian for sandals.


It's also the older crowds version of flip flops ;-) trust me my mother exclaimed that to a frenemy of my sisters when they were out shopping once buying sandals. My sister was mortified.

Technically it's not an adult word. A thong is a thin leather strap, commonly thought to just be a type of underwear, but that's not the dictionary definition.
