Finally, someone else like me with more Dixie than general American English!

Maybe at least we can be understood by each other...

the test is stupid tho. The results aren't accurate. I don't drive at all so i had to pick something random on that driving question. I call an easy class an easy class and i don't call throwing rolls of toilet paper over ppl's houses anything. Lol nobody has a house here. I know what a cruller is but i don't use that word at all because i don't eat them. Chocolate frosted all day. Crullers can stay on the shelf.
lol . . .:d

I find this somewhat accurate for me since I've never been to the Midwest, thus I would have had the opportunity to pick up on their slang. Being southern the lack of Dixie terms is somewhat surprising (never been too far into Yankeeland either). But i'd say it's somewhat accurate.

Some of the choices I wouldn't use.

For Shopping Cart; I say basket.

For an easy class; I just say an easy class.

I've sometimes called an easy class "a pud class." I didn't know if this was a regionalism or a Me-ism. Looking it up it appears to be a Kansas/Missouri, and the surrounding area, expression.
