I looked it up and:
Rubber = BrE a thing you use for removing pencil marks
AmE (informal) a condom

Eraser = (especially AmE) a rubber object used to remove pencil or pen marks from paper (BrE rubber)

So yeah PrinceOfCats, you are not mistaken you are right .

I was in the library in college and I asked this girl beside me (an american) did she have a rubber and she gave me a funny look and said something about getting one from a machine so then I gave her a funny look and thought she was being a snob and said well I just saw you using one and she got up and moved to a different table! I was highly bemused and realize now she thought I was asking her for a condom.

I speak American-English in writing, speaking, and word choice. My accent is mid-west with some words pronounced in southern or south-west style. I drop my t's for some reason (I say moun'in instead of mountain) and add syllables.


I've heard that during the Sydney Olympics some Australian atheletes got freaked out when Americans told them they were rooting for them. In American when you say "I'm rooting for you" it would mean "I'm supporting you." In Australia it would mean "I'm having sex for you."

I speak American-English, from Southern California, when I'm in the USA, but English-English in the UK. I guess I just switch, but my phrases are mosty American. My mom always speaks English-English.

haha thats funny but nah. if someone over here in australia said im rooting for you it means im supporting you.

but they may have misheard it as "im rooting you" which means im having sex with you.
