    @lolaswann:  Agreed. I’m American, but I spell it grey. It just looks… better somehow. Classier.

    I use both b/c I can never remember which is correct, and it doesn’t get autocorrected either way! I’m American.

    I’m Canadian, I was taught “gray” and “centre” not “center”.

    I’m American, and I use both, though it depends on what context I’m using it in. Sounds odd, but if I’m talking about the color, I’ll say “I like the gray comforter better,” but for proper nouns, I tend to use “grey” , like grey wolf, Grey’s Anatomy, and so forth. My weird rationalization I guess!

    american and I use them interchangeably. Not sure why. Sometimes it bothers me that I don’t know which I’m supposed to use!
