Obviously not if you read employment ads.
You know why don't act naive.

We use to call a sub sandwich a grinder.

Hamburger is a slider
fried eggs are ordered as 'give me two greasy'
Trading material or services is kamsshaw

(oh man...I'm watching the news and a plane I watched taking off and landing yesterday at our little airport crashed in Utah killing the pilots...what a shame, it was an old WW2 plane.)

We use the term hamburger here. If you use the term "slider" its a Chicago term for a White Castle hamburger. "slide right in slide right out."

@George Ledo, you forgot-- a 2nd Lt.(do know how to spell Lt.) was called a butter bar. His rank insignia is a gold bar. Lt. in general was called L.T.

A private e1 was called a slick sleeve. He had know rank insignia. In other words he was at the bottom of the totem pole. Smile

Oh yes, and a 1st Sergeant was called Top.

When the Three Stooges Toured Ireland they arrived to see their name billed as "The Three Hooges".

Can any of you Irish guys say why?

In Gaelic, the "H" is pronounced "ST."
"Torture doesn't work" lol
Guess they forgot to tell Bill Buckley.

Yep, I forgot.

I was an E-6, and I used to raise eyebrows when I said "Never mind the Sarge. My name is George."

What's the difference between a PFC and a Second Lieutenant?

Ohhhh man. My wife had a co worker teacher who's dad was an admiral. She was kind of loopy and lived with her mom and stepfather most her life so she wasn't hip to the military. During fleet week he is in town (San Francisco) and we took her to meet with him. We went on the carrier and he came out and everyone was, of course, calling him sir and being very polite to him. Michelle says "Oh, you don't have to call him sir, his name is James!"...everyone looked at her, then him, then her, and he says "No, they have to address me as sir".

There was a commercial for a local pub here in Providence which was modeled after an Irish pub.
I can't remember all the dialog, but the customer was annoyed that he'd ordered chips for his sandwich and was presented with fries.

CUSTOMER: What if I wanted biscuits with my stew?"
WAITER: I would have brought you cookies.

WAITER: Where you see a line, I see a que. Where you turn a faucet, we twist a tap.

CUSTOMER: And when I ask for the check?
WAITER: I bring you the bill.
"There's no time to lose," I heard her say.
"Catch your dreams before they slip away."
"Dying all the time, lose your dreams and you could lose your mind.
Ain't life unkind?"
