I personally consider the term "Yank" as a badge of honor, so no offense here.harrysin said:As a "pom" who arrived in Australia from the U.K.in 1964 and soon became an "aussie", I don't find either term offensive so long as they are not used in an offensive way. May I ask if Americans find the term "yank" at all offensive when used in a pleasant way, as I have only subscribed to this site for a couple of weeks, I should hate to cause offence. It is 38deg.c and I have been waiting for our air-conditioning system to be repaired for best part of two weeks and have to wait 'till Monday or Tuesday. I doubt that a manufacturer like Hitachi would get away with this kind of "service" over there. Harry
