    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.

    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.

    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.

    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:

    "soft drink
    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.)

    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.
