That explains some confusions when playing PR though.

To avoid confusion I call the bottom floor of a three-story building the "third floor from the top" and the top floor the "third floor from the bottom." Naturally, the remaining floor is referred to as the "the one in between." You guys follow?

Ah this old chestnut. I mostly use ground 1st etc (the proper way) but if I think more clarity is needed, I'll clarify with the number of floors up from the street level, or down from the roof. i.e. Naughty people 2nd floor balcony, 3 up [from the street].

Just be glad we don't have to describe what a biscuit is in PR :/

Cheers, Murkey.

In Italy we use the British/western Europe way:

Ground Floor = piano terra (zero or "T" or "G" in elevators) ;
1st Floor= primo piano
2nd Floor= secondo piano
3rd Floor= terzo piano
Last Floor= Ultimo piano = Roof -1

a building with a 3rd floor is... a building with 3 floors; we don't count the ground at all

due to the notable differences, I always had problems to operate in buildings in international PR squads, expecially as medic (double Ts in Muttrah are my nightmare )

This is how I fixed the problem in PR.

American English - My English
-----------------------------------
first floor - ground floor
second floor - floor above ground floor
third floor - some floor I don't know I'll call out on local
fourth floor - floor under roof
roof - roof

No more misunderstandings. As long as you don't use the third floor as much.

Edit: Is it just me or does the word floor look really weird? floor...floor... floor.

Maybe there should be an official PR floor designation just like there is a PR time.

Well it serves you right for asking in a new thread instead of reading the old mega thread on this subject

Now I'm more confused than ever (my monkey brain can only handle so much information) and you should probably make a new rule about calling out the correct floor and spare me from a potentially awkward and deadly situation.
