I call it a bubbler, with a soft r. Isn’t it a cute thing to call it?!
What do you call the directionals in a car? Directional or blinker? I switch between the two. I say directional when inside the car, but blinker when I’m looking at someone else’s car. ”They’ve left their blinker on for five minutes now!”
I would be kidding myself if I said I dropped my R’s very often. That’s a rare thing. I just don’t emphasize my R’s super hard. They’re soft, but they’re there.
I have literally never in my life until right now heard anyone call the turn signal a directional. I am like, in shock. Is this a real thing? DIRCETIONAL? I never even heard blinker until I went to Oregon. I’ve always called it a turn signal.

In Canada (at least the parts I am familiar with:) Water fountain/drinking fountain. Turn signal or just signal. Never heard of “directional” before either!
