Pudding is dessert (as in the course) and also the name for specific hot desserts like steamed sponge pudding.

I've heard lots of people say "hire" instead of "rent" (ex: "we're going to hire a car") So do you guys use hire to mean as in "hired at a job", or is there another word for that?
Rent (the verb) is usually just applied to property, while hire is more general.
