- May 25, '04 by LMPhilbricI was looking at the "We say, they say" again and I thought of something funny. The first time I had to have an exam invigilated down here, the librarians at the local college didn't know what an invigilator was. They had to look up the word in the Oxford English dictionary to find out what they were supposed to do! When they figured it out, they were so thrilled. They like the word "invigilate" better than "proctor". I've written several exams there since and they are always happy to see me so they can "invigilate".

Canadians must be accustomed to it because no one has mentioned that Canadians have better posture and grammer than many in the USA.
More of you stand up straight.
I never heard none of you use no double negatives.

That is so funny. My husband and I just got back from visiting Ucluelet and Vancover- what an absolutely beautiful area ! I have to laugh though because we were so "lost" when it came to the conversions....I didn't think that it was too bad out when the weather guy said it was only going to be 17 degrees. I was a little suprised to see surfers in the water when it was only 10 `C, and you could only see about 20 yards (don't know what that is in meters :chuckle ) because of the fog. They seemed to be having fun though!

We've lived in both places though we currently reside in the US.
This entire thread cracked me up.
When I get my BSN we'll probably pack up our loot and move to B.C.
