Thread: What do you call it?

    Default What do you call it?

    When you come home from the supermarket, what do you do with your
    groceries? Put them "away", put them "up"? When I was a little kid,
    here in Louisiana, people would "save the groceries", and I always
    thought, as opposed to what, throwing them away?

    BTW, I put them up, my husband puts them away.

    I think everyone in my family puts them away. "Hang on while I put away
    the groceries." Yep.

    Put them up where? Heh.

    I put them away, too. Okay, there was the one time with the
    pork chops, I didn't put them away. Usually I do.

    What a very odd question. 8-) Also odd is that I sometimes says put up,
    other times put away; put away most often, I think.

    When I come from the store I "Put the groceries up".
    When I sit down to eat I "Put the groceries away".

    *Chuckle* i still have a few Navycism's, i stow my groceries in the
    appropriate locker of the galley.

    Course a friend of my named John tended to get a bit upset when i
    referred to going to the. So i reverted to the Naval 'head'.

    I got cured of asking directions to the "bathroom" after a few months in
    port in Marseilles.

    Since you have multiple locations where your groceries go when you get
    home, some up, some down, some in, some out, it's only fair to use
    "away". :-)

    Interesting. Probably from the heat! We put ours away, too.

    What I love is people who "pick up the house" when they clean.

    It would be scarier to think what they are doing to their house if they
    were "putting it away". :-)

    routine housekeeping.

    The expression that gets me is "sleeping in" versus "sleeping late". I
    always sleep late, but I know many people who sleep in.

    Tracy - What is the difference between the two for you? I personally
    discern none.

    Just curious.

    I put them on the table. My wife puts them away.

    For me, sleeping in meant staying home and sleeping in my bed, rather than
    sleeping through all the boring teleconferences in my desk chair at the
    office. ;-)

    Thank God for retirement.

    To me, "putting up" food means canning or otherwise preserving it. I put
    groceries away.

    I can not sympathize with your sentiment any more than you know. Been
    there, done that.

    Still doesn't map to the question. Sleeping in, or sleeping late, did
    not matter. I still participated in a *lot* of those calls you find I
    think distasteful. I was there also. Earning the paycheck, and actually
    adding value to the end customer still mattered to me. even at the end.
    If that makes sense. No longer loved the company, but loved the work, if
    that makes sense.

    I'd never heard the expression until college. I always wondered
    "sleeping in what"?
