Speaking of iced tea, sweet tea gross. Its very existence bothers me.

It has to be made right. You can't just put sugar in cold tea. But I can understand why. I don't like it over-sweetened. I live in between the South and the North and I never know what a new restaurant will have.

One thing that really bugs me is when a video game - any video game, has these annoying/time wasting animations or cut scenes that you must sit through and cannot skip.  For instance, if I want to enter a door in CoH, but another player or NPC has opened the door, you have to sit there and wait for the door opening & closing animation, before you can go through, and heaven help you if you happen to click on said door during that time frame!  😣

Calling soda-pop "Coke."

 

I was born and raised on the east coast (USA), but moved to the midwest a couple of decades ago.  The first week I was here, I went to the grocery store and the cashier asked me: "Do you want your pop in a sack?"

 

I replied: "No, but I do want my soda in a bag." 

 

(What does my father have to do with this?)

I agree there. Gotta add the sugar when the tea is still hot. I just don't like iced tea at all, and sweet tea I find even worse. That makes me a bad Texan I'm pretty sure.

Being Southern, I think I'm required by tradition to insult your ancestors and challenge you to a duel or something now... But since I don't actually put sugar in tea myself, I have something of a conflict.

You could try insulting his dueling and challenging him to an ancestry.

 

Not sure how that'll work, but while you two are busy figuring it out, I'mma gonna steal me some fries 😛

I think that's how most couples find out their spouse is their cousin these days.

On the subject of ketchup; it goes on almost everything. I use it as dip for potato chips and everyone seems to thinks thats weird but they're potatos.

Very common convo in my college dorm on the third floor:

 

Hey I'm going down to the machine to get a coke, you want one?

 

Sure.

 

What kind?

 

Dr. Pepper.

 

 

Same here. Well, used to be. Haven’t heard this since I left Texas 3 years ago.

Ordinary People [3 parts]=Standard Operating Procedure, Hope and Bullets, The Last Full MeasureInvestigation of a series of thefts leads you deep into a vengeful plot that threatens all of Paragon City. Will you and Kings Row's "ordinary" heroes be able to stop it?

Leviathan [4 parts]=Hollow Pursuit, Hollow Ring, Hollow Victory, Origin:  The  assassination of a local politician with national aspirations sets off a media frenzy among everyone's favorite reactionary network, NewsAnon. But the bigger issue is who's behind it. All signs point to the one and only Hollow Point. But, as you soon find out, signs can be deceiving.

Working on: Leviathan 5: Mantle With Leviathan momentarily "submerged" The Row faces a new threat, posed by the 5th Column. Thankfully, NewsAnon's favorite super team, the Vigilant Patriots, is on the scene! Unfortunately for you, this means you're out.

I’m originally from the San Antonio area, and spent my last 10 years in the state near Austin. Finally cut ties and moved. I do not miss all that stupid heat (nor the perpetual wearing of flip-flops by everybody. They’re not for goin’ out on the town, y’all).

Me: Iced tea please.
Server:  Would you like Peach or Raspberry?
Me: I would like Tea-flavoured tea.

 

This has been my conversation with servers on multiple occasions.

So, basically, the tea version of 'would Pepsi be alright?'

I've had that conversation too.

 

"I'll have iced tea."

"We only have flavored ice tea, is that ok?"

"I'll have a coke."

"We only carry Pepsi products."

"I'll take an orange juice."

"Orange juice is $2 for a small and $4 for a large."

"...."
