In the thread about terms native to your region, someone posted a list of "You know you're from _____ when..." and it inspired me to start another thread posting ones where we live. Feel free to post yours. I'm from NYC and Long Island, so I'll put some from each place : 1.You say "the city" and expect everyone to know that this means Manhattan. 2.The subway makes sense. 3.You haven't seen more than twelve stars in the night sky since you went away to camp as a kid. 4.Your closet is filled with black clothes. 5. You've gotten jaywalking down to an art form. 6.When you're away from home, you miss "real" pizza and "real" bagels. 7. You know what a bodega is. 8. No, you don't want mustard on that burger! 9. You think if you're not from Long Island or NYC, you're not really from New York. 10.You never realize you have an accent till you leave.
