This is the title of a book actually. http://www.amazon.com/You-Say-Tomato-Shut-Up/dp/030746377X
I had to laugh this morning as we have a couple here on a picnic package and I asked DH to let them know their picnic lunch will be on the dining table around 11am for them to take with and the personalized list of romantic picnic spots/hikes/visitas. (Yeah I said ALL that)
He went out and said to them "Your esky will be here at 11" and they nodded and then he walked away. (Yeah that was it)
I said, "DH! They don't know what that means!"
He said "Sure they do!"
I said "Please go back out and say it again, and ask them about it"
Sure enough, they had no idea what the heck he was talking about. Then they all had a big laugh.
Yeah SHUT UP is about right...we need a translator around here sometimes.

I print the list with their name on the top with that title and then put it in a plastic document sleeve and insert in the "esky" or give to them. I also put a tablecloth and two small bottles of bubbles inside. I don't use a proper hamper, although I have thought I would, but the food and drinks need to stay cold and it is hot here!!

The odd thing is, even tho I've never heard that term, if I was expecting something to be put out for me, I'd figure 'that's what they call it in these parts!'
Yes, that attitude has caused problems in the past, but I like new words so it usually all works out.

ROTFLMAO!
Where I come from a "chilly bin" is a woman who won't put out.
.
We had a couple here from AR a few weeks ago and I went thru some of the words they would run across here that probably would not get them what they wanted. The most important being 'Coke'. 'Coke' around here gets you Coke, not Pepsi, not ginger ale, not 7-up. They said, 'Yeah, we found that out yesterday.'
They already knew about the iced tea. They said they were warned in advance that no one here would make the tea the right way.

My friend from NC refers to pop of any kind as a "drink". She comes to Ohio and orders a drink and gets told we do not have a liquor license and you are underage. She wanted a Coke or Pepsi.

Yes, when I was a kid, we used the word coke for ANY soft drink.
Also in Arkansas we call them sodas, not "pop". Only Yankees say pop.
90% of people in my town no longer order tea. They only order "sweettea" (all one word) referring to iced tea with the sugar added while it's still hot. They say it tastes better than unsweetened tea that has the sugar added after it's iced.
I wouldn't know. I only like it unsweetened, with lemon preferred.
My dad had a first cousin who taught at Cornell U. in New York for about 100 years. When she would come to visit, she'd order tea at restaurants and was always shocked when she got iced tea rather than the hot tea she wanted. She was never good at the "when in Rome" thing. Pitched many fits. Embarrassed me no end.

The great 'pop' vs 'soda' vs 'coke' map. Nary a Yankee on there saying 'pop'. (Yankee being a New Englander.)
You, OTOH, saying 'soda' must get you funny looks given the map showing a preponderance of 'coke' lovers. Unless you live in that little, tiny corner in the, you guessed it, northeast.

Well now we need another map. Nobody I know limits the term "Yankee" just to New England (though I stipulate that you are technically correct). Yankees to us are all people from non-Confederate Civil War states east of Nebraska, and it's not considered a compliment to call someone a Yankee.
Most of the Yankees we Arkansans run across are from Illinois and Michigan. For some reason they like to retire to Arkansas. They are not loved because they're prone to calling a spade a spade, rather than sugar-coating their opinions the way we do.
Interestingly, we like folks from New England (the real Yankees). They are considered exotic and foreign, like the British, French, or Vulcans.

The great 'pop' vs 'soda' vs 'coke' map. Nary a Yankee on there saying 'pop'. (Yankee being a New Englander.)
You, OTOH, saying 'soda' must get you funny looks given the map showing a preponderance of 'coke' lovers. Unless you live in that little, tiny corner in the, you guessed it, northeast.
I ditto AR, Yankees are anyone north of the Mason/Dixon line. We (southerners) have a saying down here: Yankees are those that come down to visit, DAMN Yankee are the ones that never go back! I fall in the latter catagory!!!

Edited to add: This all said in fun these days!
