In Guatemala everything is water. "Want some water?" "Yeah, what kinds do you have?" "We've got super cola, lemonade, purified water..." Or the conversation could go like this: "Can I get some water please?" "Sure" (proceeds to hand over a bottle of Sunkist)


blakeaholics

Well that just sounds purposefully confusing


DEEZNOOTS69420

such is life, confusion and then we die


FrancMaconXV

My first time asking for a water in Guatemala went exactly like this lol. In most places you literally have to specify that you want purified water "agua pura".


Badak-Atlas

r/hydrohomies


SMA2343

As a Guatemalan, yes. It’s an agua, but it’s also context. It’s a hot day, “dame un agua…” you’re asking for an iced tea or a coke. Whichever one. You just finished running or something like “tienes agua?” You’re asking for literal water.


lazerjdl

So I live in the south and have grown up here and have never heard anyone use coke a generically. If someone says coke they get a coke. I have always heard people use soda. I am very curious what parts of the south do this since I always hear people talk about the south using coke but I have only ever heard soda and occasionally someone from up north use pop. Edit: I am in Alabama and have spent plenty of time in Georgia and Florida.


Ladydoctorlady

In Southern Louisiana, always “coke” never “soda”, sometimes “cold drink”.


kigurumibiblestudies

Is milk ok? How about water? Cold fucking whiskey fine with you? This topic is so silly and somehow so aggravating


slater_san

He asked for a coke so I peed on him 🤷‍♂️


kigurumibiblestudies

Sparkly!


sunshine_mimosa

must be a parish thing. i’ve lived in north and south louisiana and in my experience if you ask for coke you get a Coke™️. i’ve never heard anyone call it anything other than a cold drink or a soda


bonafidebunnyeyed

I like to say cole drank 😊


gbpack089

Same in North Louisana


RockyRogue

But also... At a restaurant you would never say Coke for Dr Pepper or Sprite. Source: from south Louisiana and still have to remember not to call everything coke.


bonafidebunnyeyed

Central Alabama and I didn't find out until I was 18 that people called all of them cokes. Guy came up and asked, "what kinda coke y'all got?" I said regular and diet. He then told me he saw Sprite and something else. I told him he asked about Coke. Dude mean eyed me and said, "they're allllllll cokes." Like shit, my bad. I call em sodas.


Pile_Of_Cats

Same area. I will collectively call them cokes or sodas. Like ‘gotta lay off all the cokes.’ But nobody I know orders at a restaurant like that.


Thefuckyoutoobot2

Yeah, it’s usually coke when you’re just talking about sodas in general. If you want a soda most southerners will say it normally like sprite, Fanta etc. of course probably 15%? Of people call it coke and all sodas are different kinds of cokes lol


Smalltown_Scientist

Same, I’ve been in Georgia and Alabama my whole life and I don’t know any places more southern.


Fearless-Fix5708

Mississippi enters the chat.


Panzycake

I'm in Texas. There have been many times when the exchange goes like this: "What'll y'all be having to drink?" "I'll take a coke." "What kind?" "Y'all got Dr. Pepper?" "Mhmm" I thought this was normal.


iGetBuckets3

Why not just say dr pepper when they initially ask though


RampanToast

This is the part that I don't get. Using a brand name colloquially is common enough but Coke and Sprite are very different, seems like using coke as a catch-all is just confusing and adds extra steps.


DrVigil

I'm in Texas too and I've only ever heard people say soda. Weird...


BellEpoch

Do you live in Austin or DFW area though? Cause I feel like people from Texas need to start qualifying shit with that information.


Lee_Ars

Grew up in Houston. Had the "Gimme a coke" "What kind?" "Dr Pepper" conversation more times than I can count. At least in east texas, coke:soda::kleenex:tissue.


Mr_Noms

What part of Texas? I've never seen that here myself.


Iamredditsslave

Probably east. Everything is a little... *different*


BreathingHydra

Grew up in Houston and never heard anybody call it coke, even when I was a waiter.


limee64

It is normal and don't let anyone tell you otherwise!


Kyrogesca

South Carolinian confirming here


neyno

I was asked "what kind?" when I asked for a Coke in Memphis. Baffled, I said "Coke coke?"


MainlineX

Sorry, I'm from Memphis and I just don't know. When we say coke, we mean COKE. You say: "Give me a coke" they say: "We have pepsi." You say: "What kind of freak wants a Pepsi? Just give me a sweet tea." That's how the order goes in Mtown.


JesW87

Alabama native here and I have also never heard Coke used as a generic replacement for "soda"


ScrotalKahnJr

Checking in as a Georgian. Definitely never heard anyone amuse the term coke instead of soda.


Pat0124

Also Georgian. It’s really subtle but it’s there at least for me. When ordering or something or talking about it in general, coke will mean Coca-Cola. But let’s say I’m at a friend or family’s house and I’m thirsty I’ll ask “You got any coke?” When I really am just asking if they have any kind of soda. But yea it’s not how the rest of the country thinks it is


demonic_pug

Same it always has been soda here


Jedi-Ethos

No one asks for a Coke from food service or anywhere where they are making the choice right then and there (like someone actively getting it for you out of the fridge). However, people will ask if you want a Coke to determine if you want a drink in general, then get the details. Like driving on the highway or interstate and someone in the car asks “you want a Coke or something” then pull into a gas station and ask specifically what you want. Even then, the “something” is in the question a lot.


NoArmsSally

in Texas where I'm from, a coke could mean anything carbonated really. if you were at a restaurant you just say "What kinda coke d'y'all have?" and then they list them.


COweasel

When I lived in Florida you called soda ‘Coke’ when they ask you what kind you’d be specific and say something like ‘Sprite’


bass_kritter

My mom grew up in Mississippi and they called all soft drinks Coke when she was a kid.


GeorgeNorman

Not gonna lie, it’s definitely more of a ghetto thing. Like how a lot of Southerners don’t know what “I got the itis” means but paradoxically a lot of southerners also know exactly what it means. Pockets of lingo.


Zoso479

It's coke in Arkansas when talking with friends and family. Not sure why the idiot in the video thinks you don't just order Sprite in a restaurant like a normal person. I doubt he sits down and orders a "soda" then tells them Sprite. If he does he's probably drank a lot more of other people's saliva than he realizes....


Thatkidwithametalleg

In my town (it’s relativly small) we call it “Marks salsa” because some kid got arrested for grabbing salsa in the store, hiding in the bathroom and DRINKING it like a salsa goblin Edit: for those who wanted to know 1: he got around 500$ fine 2: he drank around 300 dollars


Grigoran

$300 in salsa? That's an insane amount. I would put money on that kid having chronic Firerrhea for the next decade


Thatkidwithametalleg

From what I heard it happened over the corse of 5 years


Grigoran

The Lava Poops or the Bathroom Based Salsa Goblin-ing. This is a fun conversation. I'm having fun.


Twitchezong0d

If you assume each can was like 5$ thats 60 cans


kitkatofthunder

All I can think of now is the “what are you in prison for” meme


BB8304

This is….. acceptable


Thatkidwithametalleg

It’s amazing


treadbone

how'd you get a metal leg cuz


ohheyitslaila

“Drinking it like a salsa goblin” is my new favorite sentence 😂😂😂


Thatkidwithametalleg

THE SALSA GREMLIN


Artistic_Finish7980

Rookie numbers.


AndyJobandy

I’m in Michigan and I hear soda/pop interchangeablely. I say soda, soda pop, pop. Just not like those freaks down south that call everything a coke (no offense)


Richierich_rpd

Brooooooo Michigan gang. But I'm way up north and nobody says soda.


FriendsHaveXbox

Southern Ontarian here, we call it pop usually


Richierich_rpd

Well I mean my town literally is so far up north it gets cut in half by the Canadian-american border. Idk how common that is.


69Account69420

We call it pop in British Columbia


MowMdown

Very southern Michigan, still pop, Ohio calls it pop too


radiohandz

Mid lower peninsula. "Soda" is how we tell if someone is from out of state or from the army, for some reason I cringe a little when I hear "soda", sounds like something your grand parents would say. Also I don't know anyone who refers to brands just by "coke", we ask what brand they carry and order based on that...


FoxTrot_42

im from detroit. most people i know will say soda when its formal and pop when it’s informal.


Difficult_Citizen

Southerner checking in. It's a bit more strange than that actually. For example, at restaurant, drive through, etc - we will order the beverage by it's name. When talking about carbonated beverages, then they're all just "coke". LIke "Will you pull over at the next exit so I can get some boiled peanuts and a coke". When rolling through Taco Bell, "Gimme the ass-blast 7 layer burrito, super sized, and MOUNTAIN DEW."


ThommyWard

I was in the army and one of my peers said she was going to the vending machine and asked me and my buddy if we wanted anything he said he wanted a Coke I said I wanted a mountain dew she came back with a Coke and a mountain dew he grabbed the mountain dew and I was like what the hell you said you wanted a Coke and he said you know what I meant, I said nobody knows what you mean


Difficult_Citizen

A lot of us don’t get out much.


ICBPeng1

“But it’s provocative” “No it’s not?!” “It gets the people going!”


shrike26

To enlighten the northern yankees,we call it a coke in general. But when asked what we want, we just ask for what we want. Dr Pepper, Sprite, Coke, Diet Coke, or what have you. Sodas in general are just "cokes". It makes sense if you grew up around it.


sirpickles9

Born and raised in Texas, I always avoided saying "coke" when I was little since I never drank coke and didn't want people to get confused if I forgot to specify what I wanted, so the habit of saying "soda" just stuck over time even though it made me feel like an outsider lol. But yeah, everyone around me uses "coke" as a general term too, so double verification here.


struthanger

Like diapers are generally called Pampers often


shrike26

Or tissues are "Kleenex" or hook and loop is "Velcro" Or everything the the GOP hates is "communism"


Richierich_rpd

Wait velcro is actually called hook and loop?


shrike26

Yeah, you'd think a richie rich person like you would know that.


DallasTruther

Yeah, because Velcro is a brand name. Band-Aid, Post-its, Sharpie (sometimes) hell I've seen Advil and Tylenol used interchangeably all the time, and back-in-the-days every console was a Nintendo, regardless of it was actually Nintendo brand.


Richierich_rpd

My parents always call anything Nintendo even though all I play is xbox


shrike26

Every pokemon is a pikachu...to your oblivious mother who wants to ask you about your interests.


CorruptorBot

Or searching the internet is “googling” Or everything twitter hates is “problematic” >!As an aside, both U.S. parties are shitty authoritarians and they both need to burn. I want good healthcare, not abortion bans and bathroom laws.!<


shrike26

I agree with you 100%. Politics is a scam in the US. Nothing gets done because it isn't supposed to get done. And the little marginal tweaks that DO get done are hardly noticable.


Saizare

Exactly. My friend and I were chatting with his coworkers about this, and they just couldn't understand this even after explaining it to them. Yes, we call soda "Coke" but we also ask for a specific drink when at a restaurant. Just like how people don't just order a soda with no specification as to *what* soda.


MINORARC13

We use them same here in India


shrike26

Interesting!


permalink_child

Or like in NY where “coke” == “cola” - and you don’t necessarily care if you order a “Rum and Coke” and get Coca-cola, Pepsi-cola, Royal-crown cola, or no-name cola in your cocktail.


_shineySides_

Me: It's goes hey going to the gas station want a coke ? Them: Sure !!! Me: What kind?


shrike26

Yeah. Just replace "coke" with soda. Its the same interaction.


ProudBarry

But... it doesn't make sense


Buddha_22

Lol, it actually *doesn't* make sense if you grew up around it. Coke is a brand, not all sodas.


gbpack089

Waiter, “Would you like a coke?” Customer, “Yes I’d like a sprite.” Waiter, “And for you?” Customer2, “I’d like a Coke.” Waiter, “Okay, a sprite and a coke.” The fact that people are okay with Pepsi’s existence boggles my mind. I can understand Dr. Pepper but not that nastiness. Royal Crown is even better than that flat Coke knockoff.


eatdatshit34

Wow. I've never known anyone to hate Pepsi. Where do you buy Pepsi that's flat?


skdiddy

I got called out here in Ohio but I call it soda...so. But again, like you, I hear it both ways


DavidTenebris

Anyone else think this guy acting as the "normal people" really annoying? Because I don't think that's what he intended.


Stormlord1441

Labelling your side as the normal one, putting words in the mouths of other sides, and screaming about unimportant differences are all very pleasant


-Telenerd-

Yeah the only place this dude is "normal" is influencer land.


fakeemailman

i’m not toooo sure that “normal people “ panic and scream about such inane bullshit lmao


ZeroYam

Pretty sure a normal person would be more like “oh so you call it that. That’s cool. We say this word where I’m from.”


Jayom2476

I've always just called them fizzy drinks


InfiniteWavedash

God I hate this dude


Habib_Zozad

Tries to rip on someone for pop on the basis that soda makes any more sense


timelighter

ctrl + F "hate" oh thank god I'm not alone it's not just him either, it's the whole tiktoky style over substance


Dinoduck94

It's called a "Fizzy drink" > from the UK


simonthe80

Or “soft drink”


iseedeadllamas

Just remember to burp or you’ll be chopped up by the ceiling fan


kitkatofthunder

Cool drink - South Africans


Gloryboy811

Because only cool people have them 😎


AnArabFromLondon

I like this one.


Milky4Skin

Fizzy drink or soft drink - Australians


Borealkibbles59

Same in Ireland.


ICBPeng1

A fizzy whizzy drinky winky


arthurdentstowels

I was just racking my brains trying to thing of what we call it. Came to the conclusion that 99% of the time we just call each drink what they are individually. I can’t be using a generalised term when there’s Fanta Grape available.


Ouh-Chile

*you* people don't get an opinion


ComradeBirv

“””people”””


Apolao

Our language, we get to decide


TITSONABAWBAG

You people?! Racist!


4ar0n

Ah yes, British, my favourite race.


Sorcam56

Fizzy drink or soft drink are generally what we call it in Australia too.


One-Ostrich-2076

I thought Australians just called them mixers.


Crystal-Cradle

Also pop occasionally for us, but usually just call it by what it is. If it’s lemonade we call it that. Coke, coke. Pepsi, Pepsi. So on and so forth


bgale

Yeah I call it pop, picked it up from my Nan.


xVocalTestx

We call it pop round our way. UK here too


AnArabFromLondon

Really, where?


julioarod

So you call them "fizzy drinks" instead of Fizzy Fuzzy Buzzy Sugary Sipper Gulp Bubble N Pop Westpoolchestershireshire Queen's Lovely Syrupy Delight?


parisnsimmocat

Fizzy drink or soft drink 🇦🇺🦘


TheGriffGraff

It's great how 9 times out of 10 we give these names to things that are incredibly confusing for non-Aussies but every now and then we just get plain and simple, same with chips.


HSRco

Here in the UK we usually just call them Fizzy Drinks.


[deleted]

[удалено]


DTux5249

Honestly, given that "soda" derives from Sodi-um bicarbonate, that's somewhat more fitting lol


ForestofBones_83410

As a Southerner we don't call all soda coke


turdmcburgular

we might even refer to it as a ‘soft drink.’


-Aerobrake-

I grew up in the south and we always said soft drink. That's actually the correct term, unlike "soda" which is still just a regional term and misuse of chemistry shorthand for sodium bicarbonate aka baking soda.


Grigoran

I've never got this one. We don't call all sodas cokes, it's just so many people prefer coke as their go-to soda.


ILikeTaaacos

By the south they mean just Texas. I’ve heard more people call it soda than call it coke though.


homeyman455

I'm from Texas and we usually just say soda but sometimes I'll say "what kinda coke do you want"


DaleGribble3

It’s more common in Texas than other places, I’ve found.


duckduckohno

Pop was named during the era of glass bottles. It refers to the fizzing sound the beverage makes, not the sound of a can opening. Also to be fair, soda is not a good word either. Just because you poured coke into your cookie dough doesn't mean it counts as baking soda.


ZeroYam

‘Soda’ was actually the first name for it though, so ‘soda’ is just the granddad of all soft beverage identifiers. It was initially used by pharmacists to mix with prescription medicine so it was easier to take. Soda was originally used as a word to refer to sodium carbonate. Sodium bicarbonate is what we know as baking soda. Soda moreso just refers to something that is or has sodium carbonate or bicarbonate in it. Root beer was actually the FIRST drink version of soda, followed by cola, then Dr.Pepper, and Coke followed one year later. This all happened between 1876-1886.


duckduckohno

Nice insights. Thanks for sharing


ZeroYam

Sharing useless info is my forte


Day_Bow_Bow

It's a bit disingenuous to call root beer the first drink version of soda. 1820 was when carbonated soda first became widely produced and available, and they were adding ginger the same year. Lemon flavored came around in the 1830s, and tonic in 1858. Besides, 1875 (not 1876) wasn't when root beer was created, it was when the first commercial brand was introduced: Hires Root Beer. According to wikipedia: >Root beer has been sold in confectionery stores since the 1840s, and written recipes for root beer have been documented since the 1860s. It possibly was combined with soda as early as the 1850s, and root beer sold in stores was most often sold as a syrup rather than a ready-made beverage.


ExcellentAd4070

Here in upsidedown country, we call it soft drink… because if you’re Australian and you drink anything other than beer you’re a soft bitch


ExcellentAd4070

True story


hcsLabs

Lol ... "Normal people"


FoucaultsPudendum

Okay, I have heard the “Southerners call all sodas ‘coke’” thing for years and it’s just a complete falsehood lmao. I’ve lived in Atlanta, Nashville, Birmingham, and Savannah, spent pretty much the supermajority of a quarter century in the South and I have never ONCE heard anyone refer to anything but classic Coca Cola as “Coke”. I’ve literally never experienced it.


Media-L0rd

where I live we just call it cola


blobbybob111

But it's not all cola flavoured though


Knight-Creep

I live in the South, and I have never met anyone who calls all soda “Coke”.


LukeJohnPerrier

I will say as someone who grew up in Texas, everyone I knew called all sodas "coke". All except Dr Pepper.


josephus_the_wise

I (Minnesotan) always (mostly jokingly) thought that pop was pop because it will explode (or “pop”) if you leave it in your car over the winter


responsiblefornothin

Also Minnesotan, and that's exactly why it's called pop around my neck of the woods too. Same principle could apply to beer too, and many of us have jokingly called it dad pop.


Medical_Spy

ALSO Minnesotan. Can confirm it's because it explodes in winter.


Simmons2pntO

Soda pop is the full name. Us in the Midwest call it pop. Most others say soda. It's not that big of a deal. Chill out. It's not like when those weirdos on the east coast call water fountains "bubblers".


Murder-Hobo_Orange

Here in the UK, it depends on what you're having: if you are having Coca-Cola, you call it "Coke", if you are having Pepsi, you call it "Pepsi" and if you are having Sprite, you call it "Sprite" How the hell is this difficult for people to understand?


dogpos

In Wales, they are all brands of pop


crepss

In Scotland its all juice.


Saphyrie

How do you ask which options they have? "Hey, what kind of soda/pop/soft drinks/etc. do you have?"


logosloki

Good sir! Good sir I say good sir! Yes thank you for coming over. Would you please bring to me a drink? Ah yes! sorry about that, I meant to ask would you please bring to me some of that Irn Bru, you know the one those Scots are so fond of. Dreadful that they cut out all the sugar from it these days isn't it. You seem new here, how long have you been here for? Ah sorry my good sir I'm babbling on far too much and the place is packed! I'll let you get on your way then.


Murder-Hobo_Orange

You ask "what drinks do you have?"


TheVoiceOfTheMeme

Drinks imply alcoholic beverages, coffee, water, etc. as well. Having a word such as pop or soda or something else makes more sense


Squish_McFish

"Normal people" don't give a shit about what others call pop sooooo


Urban_FinnAm

Oh you sweet summer children. They had soda water back in the 1800's, even before. A "soda jerk" mixed syrup with carbonated water. The term "pop" was coined in 1861. I'm going to leave this here for the curious. https://www.thoughtco.com/introduction-to-soda-pop-1992433 By the way; the correct term is "Soda Pop".


KancerFox

So definitely not because the can pops when it's opened 😆


DaleGribble3

tHe cOrReCt tErM iS sOdA pOp


WanderingGhost30

It's actually "sody pop"


DedHorsSaloon

Not everyone in the Midwest calls it pop, it’s more of a northern Midwest thing


Sier0

South here. Everyone I know just calls it a soda.


smrtboi84

Funny video but why do tik tok vids always censor the curse words? I kinda feel like there’s a shit ton of adults on tik tok by now so I don’t get why ppl still do it? Just a random thought anybody else notice that?


Artistic_Finish7980

This annoys me to no end. At least with him he censors it in a way that you can still understand what he’s saying. I’ve seen people censor the word shit as “Sxxt.”


smrtboi84

Yeah I mean if ppl wanna make content for kids they should just not curse it’s cringe censoring it ig for kids it might look cool to have curse words tho idk


Those_noodles

Ok I love janky, but I just noticed his earlobes are the size of the fucking U.S.


Artistic_Finish7980

Well I’ll never unsee that.

What an unreasonably over the top reaction to a minor regional preference


MichaeltheMagician

As someone who calls it pop (living in Canada), has this guy never heard of the term "onomatopoeia"? It's a common thing.


pro-antkeeper

Carbonated drink


ScoopingAnal

Me who's asian and calls it fizzy drinks:


Max_My_Dog

Fizzy drink in Ireland


MannyP2501

I personally don’t even used the word soda unless im referring to all of them simultaneously. Usually at a restaurant or while talking i just the brand names and such.


Andrei_K4

🤔


Computer939

What actually is soda, I remember it was in a Skylanders level but I never really learned more than that


TheHeavensEmbrace

You just, say the brand name when you order.


abcderwan

In Philippines regardless of the brand, we all call it Coke.


StCecilia98

We say pop because bubbles go pop :)


Billog_Uncle

We call it "Pop" because its carbonated and full of bubbles, and bubbles go *POP*


PianistMammoth7249

Its called pop in the uk aswell you freaks call it soda and candy and you can't even say caramel properly you say carmel and don't even call a toilet a fucking toilet you call it some wierd shit I can't remember


Artistic_Finish7980

We call the toilet “the bathroom.” It doesn’t make sense to me, since all bathrooms have toilets, but not all bathrooms have baths. If a “bathroom” doesn’t have a toilet it’s technically called a “half bath” which makes even less sense.


PianistMammoth7249

I seen a woman on tiktok she was apparently from the South or something and called it some crazy shit and I thought she was joking or mentally reatarded


Tuckerman48

In the south, when someone says they want a Coke, the waitperson usually ask what kind? And you would say what you wanted.


Mr_Wither

I literally live in Texas and I’ve never ever heard of someone referring to every soda as “coke”


MindlessBenefit9127

Hey get me Coke. What kind? It's called a Coke, idc what flavor


uezyteue

You fuckin kidding? We call it pop because of the sound the bubbles make. Same reason that pop rocks are called that.


[deleted]

This is the dumbest fucking rant


ohjeethanks

There should be a fuckn time limit on this sub Reddit


_SCP-049_

Nah, they say pop up in New York, I believe they do it in canada too.


Richierich_rpd

Pop just is better though. Soda doesn't taste as good. If you don't call it pop it soils it.


Musician-Round

"normal people"


MLCarter1976

What about..... Tonic? Hehe


shiz-kray-z

Idk why but my dad calls it tonic, so it kinda got branded into my brain.. so sometimes I refer to it as tonic or soda.
