server confusion, dessert mention 

Confused my server by asking for a hot fudge malt. Then asked for a black and white, and the person behind the order taker knew what I wanted. But everyone around here calls it a shake, even if it has malt powder in it, leaving me to wonder if I'm getting what I wanted. I did, and it is good.

@CarlCravens In this case, your server is a restaurant worker. I imagine your coworkers would tackle you and drag you out for bringing food & beverages into the datacenter floor.

@lnxw37a2 At an ice cream shop. Ice cream and servers don't mix.

@CarlCravens I gave up asking for malts about 20 years ago, shortly after I moved to Florida. Unless you're in some type of specialty shop that tries to look like the 1950s, no one here knows what a malt is.

@whami I'm in Jersey, so similar. They often _have_ malt powder, so I can get what I want, but I ask for a malt, they still call it a shake. I start wondering how natives order it, or if malts just aren't a thing.
I'm used to this with a hot fudge malt... I sometimes have to tell them how to make it. A black and white is more often understood, but sometimes they make it with chocolate ice cream, so I have to specify hot fudge.

Regional differences are weird.

@CarlCravens I grew up mostly in southern Illinois, around St. Louis, Missouri. I know Karen talks about Kansas; is that where you are from also?

@whami Spent my whole life in Kansas before moving to NJ six years ago.
