    You call it WHAT?

    I have a large extended family (mom is one of 13 and Dad is one of 10) so they are scattered all over the place.
    I remember cousins visiting from the Boston area. I offered them some pop, cousin Manny laughed and looked at his wife saying that I called it the same as she did (she grew up in another state) Many and all my Boston cousins called it soda. I told him if he goes out around here and asks for a soda they won’t know, but you ask for a pop and right away the vendor will ask if you want coke, 7-up etc.

    Anything you can think of that is called differently in other States, Provinces, and Countries???

    I'm Canadian so it's "pop" but I usually just call it Coke if it's Coke.

    I asked my British cousin what size pants she wears while we were shopping and she looked at me like I had slapped her....We just sorta stared at each other until she said, "Why...why would you ask me such a personal question?" Turns out pants in UK is underwear.

    lol we laughed about it after I explained to her that pants = trousers in North America. The whole summer was a series of lost in translation moments...I couldn't understand her, she couldn't understand me. Most common phrase between us was "huh?" and "wut?"

    She kept saying something about taking the piss out of someone and it just sounded so wrong.

    It's "pop" in my area too (Chicago). However, I went to college in central Illinois, and had a roommate from Southern Illinois, as well as a lot of friends from more southern areas. I picked up "soda" from them, and haven't called it "pop" since then.

    Here in Glasgow, we call 'pop' or 'soda'......ginger. Don't ask me why. Sometimes it's referred to as juice or skoosh.

    "gea-us a boatle a skoosh big man!" translated "could I please trouble you for a bottle of pop kind sir?"

    'Are you taking the piss?' translated, 'are you making fun of me', gets even more confusing by the time you get to Scotland. 'Piss' is pronounced 'pish' and 'pished' also means 'drunk'.

    I call soda soda. In by its the accent n pronunciations that get the most interest from people. I think the most annoying things New Yorkers say is yous. Instead of u. I don't but it's common.

    My northern friends call it pop too. My mothers side is all from Philadelphia and they call it pop. Some of my family and friends up in Alaska call it pop, but it also goes both ways. In FL and every southern and south eastern state I've been to calls it coke or soda. Out west it's divided as well. I don't know about the middle of the US or else where but I know a few places. All my close friends in Canada call it pop, just like Jay said.
