I know that different parts of the country say different things. What do you say
POP, ain't got time for two words.
I'm from texas and had never heard it called "pop" until i moved to washington state. I still laugh anytime i hear somebody call it pop. Its soda.
When I was in highschool working at a fast food joint in the mall, a lady asked me for a large coke. After I was half through filling it up, she said Dr. Pepper. I said, but you just said coke. She said yeah, I want Dr. Pepper. It took a few minutes, but I finaly figured out that in (I THINK SHE SAID NEW YORK) they say COKE instead of soda or pop. It didn't help, I still wanted to kick her.
fordeater, we are in to bigga hurry for both, goggle that is funny. kick her.
Being out west so long , I say both now , unless I'm drunk , and all that early stuff comes back when I talk
I actually found some Faygo here in a Chevron in AZ , and it was pop again for weeks at home !!
In most of the midwest it's pop. Whenever I travel to another part of the country and ask for pop people look at me like I've got a third nut growing on my forehead.
Everyone in my town that I know call it "pop". The only people I know that say soda are these people I cut lawn for, they moved from LA a few years ago
you can take the boy outta the jungle,but you can't take the jungle outta the boy.
beer = wobbly pop
a coke or a soda. Pop who would say that?
Soda. I never heard peopole say "Pop" till I moved out to western PA for school.
Dictionary.com folks, POP IS A SOUND!
THere is a kid from the midwest at school who starts an argument about this at least once a week. It was fun for a bit, but its coming to the point where I am gonna beat his ass over something so stupid as soda.
Philly some folks say Soda-Pop.
Up here in mass most of say soda. I had a pastor who came out from Ohio and he called it Pop. The only thing I call pop is my Father.
I always said pop, never knew people said soda that much till i met my wife who is from socal!
i remember watching courage underfire, and denzel is talking to the one guy for get his mane (is a poker player) getting ready to box in the movie and denzel offers him a "soda-pop son?"
i always thought he was being sarcastic!
I never heard "Im-pal-a" until I had a friend over from the east coast either. Always been "Im-paul-a" to me, but it's just another regional thing.
Just for arguments sake off of dictionary.com:
n. In both senses also called soda pop, also called regionally cold drink, drink, pop1, soda, soda water, tonic." (1=# A nonalcoholic, flavored, carbonated beverage, usually commercially prepared and sold in bottles or cans.)
we always call it soda...until you ask what brand, then it's Pepsi, Coke, DrPep, etc.
That's funny, I'm only 2 hours north of you and I've never heard anyone call it an "im-paul-a"...everyone here calls it an "im-pal-a".
Here is another regional thing. Go to a store and buy a few items...do they ask if you want a bag for that or do they offer you a sack?
Up here it's bag, paper or plastic doesn't matter, it's always a bag. Seems the farther south i get on trips the more likely I am to be offered a 'sack'. This seems to be true except for Cali...
only ones who I ever hear call it im-paul-a are gangsta's, lol. Lets see, around here its a bag if its plastic, or a sack if its paper. O and what do y'all push your groceries around the store in? Here its a buggy.
