I told Susie this yesterday. I can't stand it when people born in the US use the word "flat" instead of "apartment." It's so affected.

I also get really annoyed when I'm reading Latin-American novels that read like this: "She went to the tiendafor a refresco, then later she met David for a cerveza at the cantina." Know what I mean?
