Soda-Jerk (SO•duh•jurk) Noun: A person who serves soft drinks and ice cream at a soda fountain. This is (almost) one of those "historically outdated occupations" like milk-man, elevator operator, pinsetter (at a bowling alley), the ice delivery guy, typesetter or telegraph operator. There ARE still SOME old fashioned soda fountains left here and there, usually found at a pharmacy. So it's not entirely extinct just YET...
