This thread is so much fun!
In the US, we'd understand that but would be more likely to say, 'call' or 'phone'.
4 wheel drive vehicles.
These are cars that people who live in ski areas are likely to own. The combination of steep grades and lots of snow means that any sane resident of Vermont will own a 4 wheel drive car.
Here, we call these vehicles ATVs for all terrain vehicles.
This is a toughy because, in the US, a truck can be anything from the small hand-operated contraption used for delivering crates of oranges to a grocery store to eighteen wheelers. (are those giant vehicles still called panopticons? )
When posters from the US say that they took the truck to the store, they usually mean a pick-up truck. This usually seats two or four people and has an open flat-bed in the back. A truck of this type usually fits into a standard parking space.
Although most people we know understand that a biscuit in most of the Anglophone world is what the US knows as a cookie, there's still a lot of fun to be had with that.
Biscuits here are traditionally yeasty, fluffy, buttery creations that are served with dinner. What
appalled another poster was probably chicken and biscuits. If you think of a pot pie with American biscuits on top instead of a pastry crust, you've got the idea. However, a bit of ginger biscuit added to a chicken stew might not be a bad idea.
Biscuits and gravy is an American farm breakfast dish that makes people who think a biscuit should include chocolate chips turn green. This is a dish that consists of left over biscuits from last night's dinner served up in a cream gravy containing bits of sausage. Made properly, it's absolutely
delicious. If it isn't done properly you may as well be eating plaster.
