        Growing up in Cali, living in Vegas..
        My first job i trained as a waitress, lots of things were taught, one of them
        being "would you like something to drink?" then naming off what we served
        and it was in variations like that in different restaurants i worked.
        We were not allowed to use the word "soda" or "Pop" that rule was here in vegas
        as well as cali.

        While in Minnesota, i went to a somewhat expensive restaurant..first time out.
        The server came up and asked, "would you like pop while you are deciding?"
        My head turned like he cussed at me.. and i thought to myself.. did he say "pop?"
        I couldn't beleive it, i said "excuse me, i didn"t hear you" and again he asked..
        I was shocked but smiled and said.. "Yes i'd love some Pop!".

        To my surprise in Minnesota the word "Pop" is used for the word soda..
        and as i lived there everyone said pop for something to drink..
        I had to get the hang of that! Also when the word is said theres a slight accent
        like.. "paap". I absolutely loved it and pick up on the word quickly til i returned
        back to Vegas!

        I was wondering if anywhere else theres differences in simple formal words spoke
        and used and if so name them!

        I learned a few new words... like Knickers, Bloomers, Hickey, and Golashes

        Knickers are pants, but here they are old time underware.
        Bloomers are big giant under garments, but here i've always thought it meant "to become"
        Hickey is love bites but also means a big knot on the head.
        Golashes are rubbers for the feet... erm...

        Whitey Tighties are mens underware.
        Tatas aren't potatoes but the evolved spanish word for boobs...

        Anyone else got some?

          How about the word "keester" (don't know if i spelled it right)... where did that come from... without seeing the word and hearing someone say it, sounds as though it would have something to do with a locksmith... how it became a word for your "butt" is beyond me...

          "Becareful and watch your step you might slip and fall on your keester"... theres not a locksmith in sight of me... huh!!!!

              A bloke is slang term for a man.  I thought that was a well known term.  I just had a look and its generally used in "...the British Isles, Australia and New Zealand."

              "He's a really nice bloke" or "what a lovely bloke he is" (generally said with a plum in the mouth for a better emphasis on the word).

              Oh i love it... i'm going to use "bloke"

              But here if we said, "you sure are a lovely bloke" ... i would get the strangest looks "lovely" and "man" in a connected sentence some men just kind lear away from it lol.. with maybe get complaints as.. 'hey thats kinda girlie"

                Well we don't say that to their faces as yes, they would shy away from it and think it was a bit girlie. 

                I'd love to know the reactions you get from whoever you use the word to.

                I am from San Diego, Cali..  I used to know a girl from georga(the state) that would allways say "I'm Fixin"  Allways loved that one.  Our terms are pretty much.. well kinda ebonics based.  like your pad is your house.. or surfer talk like if your are catching the early bird that means you are going surfing at dawn.  I don't think I would ever get used to cigarrettes being called fags like they are some places though.
