>>
stick
>>
It depends. I generally call the usb storage devices "usb sticks" or "usb drives". I rarely use the terms "thumbdrive" or "pendrive" unless I'm talking to someone who uses those terms.

If it's not a storage device but some other peripheral I'll usually refer to it as a "dongle"

Flash Drive.
It's a drive of flash memory.
Calling it something like a "USB Flash Drive" is basically the equivalent of saying popcorn is "Microwave popcorn", or saying you're eating a "Bowl of cereal" instead of just "cereal". It's a redundant phrase used by the uneducated.

USB stick or USB drive are pretty much the only correct choices. Maybe thumbstick if you're really old.

That's like all those shitty cop shows that say "GSW" instead of "Gun shot wound". Fuck heads. GSW is 5 sylables, Gun shot wound is 3.
Paper work, you type GSW on forms.
Talking, just fucking say the whole thing you re-tread.
