Unpopular Opinion Thursday (3/1)

Re: Unpopular Opinion Thursday (3/1)

  • Oh, oh! Also...everyone in retail here says "following customer" when calling for the next person IN line. I don't know why, but I think that just sounds so dumb. Just say "next" or "next customer" or "next in line," etc. Then, when they get really busy, the cashier will just yell out "following," which sounds even dumber to me.

    On line is definitely a NY/Long Island thing. I knew people in college who said that and always thought it was super weird. In line definitely sounds better. 

    I like the Coke Freestyle machines! But the best fountain Cokes come from McDonalds. No idea why but they always taste the best there. 

    I always thought "bubbler" was a New England thing. My husband doesn't say it but he knows a lot of people who do and he grew up in MA.

  • @elsie42 +1 on McDonald's having the best Cokes. I heard they have a special water filtration system and supposedly that's why they taste so dang good.

  • So a few years ago The NY Times (I think?) had a quiz about regional dialect things, and I got so confused taking it because I couldn’t remember what words I’d used as a kid vs learned in ny from New Yorkers vs learned in ny from other transplants lol. Like did I call it a sub growing up? Or a hero? Or a sandwich? Who knows!

  • I went to school in Milwaukee and have several friends from the Green Bay/Appleton area who call it a bubbler...which is weird. They also tell I say my "a's" funny, gym shoes should be called tennis shoes and I'm wrong for calling it pop and not soda because "pop is a noise, soda is a drink". I'm fine if you call it either as long as it's not soda pop.

    @icecubeinthedesert I had no idea the "why" about the bubbler thing but it makes perfect sense! A friend of ours works for Kohler :smile:

  • Not there anymore, but I grew up in Ohio and am team pop.

    i don’t really eat fast food (another uo?) but I occasionally drink pop and have actually heard that about the Coke at McDonald’s!
  • I know it is Friday now, but I just realized this might be a really real UO. I'm soooo tired of Chip and Joanna Gains and Fixer Upper. I used to enjoy the show, but then felt like all her designs looked the same. Now THEY ARE EVERYWHERE AND I AM SO SICK OF HEARING ABOUT THEM. OMG, SHUT UP!!

    @LaceyBee522 yes and I just heard they are making their own spin off show about behind the scenes on their designs.

    Yes Chip and Joanna Gaines are way overplayed now. I feel like when I watch Fixer Upper all the designs look the same and I don't think it is a style that will last. In 15-20 years I think everyone will be redoing their farmhouse kitchens and packing up all the distressed wood asking themselves what they were thinking.

    Since the discussion has been centered around dialect/regional words, try this quiz.  https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2014/upshot/dialect-quiz-map.html?_r=1

    @kfren, I was torn between yard sale and garage sale.  Interchangeable here.

    And they're tennis shoes.

  • @mytinc We use garage sale too, but more often than not, yard sale.
    And yes, tennis shoes.

  • @mytinc @kfren Where I grew up "yard sale" and "garage sale" were two different things. If you were selling stuff out of your garage/driveway = garage sale. If you set up tables in the yard = yard sale.

  • I am sick of fixer upper the show but I would still be 100% down to have chip/jo build me a house. I think they really do take their clients’ desires into account because the few times they’ve been asked to do something really modern for instance it’s been really cool. I just believe in my heart that jo would really bring my design dreams to life if I showed her enough of my Pinterest lol lol lol.

    +1 to being over the Gaines and there rustic farmhouse look. I hate that it’s all stores carry right now. We are trying to decorate our house currently and all I’m finding is farmhouse style which is not me.
