drove to ATL, clunking the whole way..funny story

so i drove to atlanta this weekend and the whole way there i heard a clunk sound the whole way from my right side. i thought 'oh damn, something in the suspension is acting up' but i pulled into the hotel and looked under the car and saw it was my air filter.

the hose clamp had come loose and it was rolling around in my fender well. haha lucky i didn't go through any deep water.

Well we don't call everything coke, and if you say well your family does then thats them, but I'm willing to bet that when someone says "get me a coke", they mean get me something to drink. or in your case get me something to pop. now which sounds ridiculous. lol

Re: drove to ATL, clunking the whole way..funny story

Just matters where your from. but you can take anything and make it sound funny like I did pop and you did coke. but you can make them right like "get me some coke" .

Re: drove to ATL, clunking the whole way..funny story

i say "get me a pop" or "get me a soda". they are synonyms. to me, a coke is a coca cola. so if someone told me to get them a coke i would get them a coca cola and if i didnt have any i would probably ask what else did they want. or if i had pepsi instead i would say, sorry i dont have coke.. is pepsi ok?

Re: drove to ATL, clunking the whole way..funny story

If someone says "get me a coke" they want a carbonated beverage.

The proper response is "What kind?"

Re: drove to ATL, clunking the whole way..funny story

yeah.. its just a different way of thinking i guess. to me it seems along the same lines as going into mcdonalds and saying "give me a big mac" and they ask "what kind" and i reply with "a quarter pounder with no onions." whereas big mac and coke are actual name brands, to me, they do not represent the entire sandwich menu. if you do a google search images for coke i guarantee you will only get coca cola and never sprite or anything. i understand it and how the word is used down there (isnt it because coke has a factory down there in ATL?), but its still funny to me.

Re: drove to ATL, clunking the whole way..funny story

I get ragged on all the time down here. Being from NY, naturally when I want a carbonated beverage, I ask for a pop. If I try to be southern and ask for a soda, they still rag on me. I have found that coke is the proper louisiana term for a carbonated drink. makes no sense to me, so I just keep asking for a pop.

Re: drove to ATL, clunking the whole way..funny story

Oh god, not the soda/pop/coke argument. Here's the bottom line on that. When I go to a restaurant or wherever and want a carbonated beverage, Ill ask for the specific type. Say I want a Sprite, why would I ask for a coke? If someone asked me what kind of coke I wanted after I said it, Id think theyre asking me if I meant diet or regular or whatever other kinds of coke there is nowdays... However, there's no way in hell I should have to say "I want a coke" and get the response "What kind?" Its rediculous and makes absolutely no sense. If someone asked me what kind of coke I wanted, Id say... "2: A COKE... thats why I said COKE. If I wanted a sprite I would have asked for a sprite, not a coke only to have to clarify what type of "coke" Im talking about." Its rediculous. Now some people might think its bad that I call it pop, and Im ok with that... it's where I grew up, so Ill say "Mom pick up some pop at the store"... but if I were to yell, "Mom, pick up some coke at the store." She'd come back with a nice case of coca-cola since thats what I asked for. It just blows my mind that some moron would ask what kind of coke i wanted after I just told them directly what I wanted... I just dont get it.

No no no no... the proper response is:
"What flavor Coke sir?"

hahahaha, i love this debate. If it's carbonated, it's a coke damnit. Soda and pop just sound stupid. lol

My ex used to say "soda" and I made fun of her every time....probably didn't help the relationship very much.

*gasp for air*




its not pop........at least not down here, "pop" is a northern term

lemme buss out Kyle's southern dictionary

coke- *noun* northern term for pop. any sort of carbonated beverage, not necessarily referring to the product "coke" itself. Hey man, gimme a coke.

It may not be the most efficient method of communication to call all cokes coke, but that's just how we do.

We've already established that the South > the rest of the US, so we'll call it what we want to!

Re: drove to ATL, clunking the whole way..funny story

lol i thought it made a fizzing noise, you must have some really carbonated **** if the bubbles are going POP.

i usually ask for coke, cause most resturants have coke as their contracted vendor, and i hate it. even my place has coke, and its nasty. wish we had pepsi so i could have mountain dew instead of sprite. its funny though when a resturant says "im sorry sir, we dont have coke" and im like "YES, i love you, ill take mtn dew please".

oh btw, how are your wheel bearings?

also, if youve done any brake work lately, check to make sure your calipers arent loose. when i did new brakes on my tbird, one of the caliper bolts came loose, and the caliper would make noise until i applied pressure to seat it.
