“Even though we’re experienced with ‘US English’ thanks to Hollywood, there are still a lot of local terms that are just baffling to us. My example is ‘will-call tickets’.”

“I was in the US years ago (before phone internet was really a thing, so I couldn’t really look it up) and I was trying to book tickets on the phone to events and was told they were ‘will call’. I had no idea what that meant and trying to ask staff for clarification just got me around in circles when they told me, ‘Oh, those tickets are will-call, sir.’

Long story short, turns out this is an American term for what we’d call ‘pick them up at the box office.'”
