I just thought I would pass along a funny story and ask about a term.
Yesterday I was interviewing a woman in New Zealand via Skype. Her accent was, of course, very thick. But, I had been able to understand her until...I asked her what they kept Kiwi eggs in while they were in the field. She replied giving me great information but she kept calling the container a "chili box" (at least that's what I heard). I kept taking notes because she was still speaking and I didn't want t interrupt, because it was obvious that I should know what a chili box is.
After her explanation she asked "Would you like to see the egg box?" I could have kissed her through the screen! She pulled out the egg box. It's a cooler.
That's when I put two and two together. It wasn't "chili box" it was "chilling" or "chiller" box. I'm still not sure because of the accent.
So there is my story about different vocabulary across the big blue. And if anyone knows whether is it chilling or chiller, please tell me!
