You know you're from Massachusetts if:

For many years I lived in Massachusetts. People there are just like everyone every where else except that they aren't. What are they like? Well, for example, ...

  • You think if someone is nice to you they either want something or they are from out of town
  • The public transportation system is known as the "T" and you'd rather drive in bumper to bumper traffic for 4 hours to get to Boston than be caught dead on the "orange line"
  • You could own a small town in Iowa for the cost of your house
  • There are 24 Dunkin Donuts shops within 15 minutes of your house and that is how you give directions
  • If you stay on the same road long enough it eventually has three different names
  • 53 degrees is "on the warm side"
  • You've walked to Brighams for an ice cream cone "to go" in the snow
  • You cringe everytime you hear some actor/actress imitate the"Boston Accent" on TV
  • You call chocolate sprinkles "jimmies"
  • A Water fountain is called a Bubbler. Say it "Bubbla"
  • You can go from one side of town to the other in less than fifteen minutes
  • You know how to pronounce towns like Worcester, Haverhill, Peabody, Scituate, Chatham, and Leominster
  • You know what they sell at a "packie"
  • You keep an ice scraper in your car all year round
  • Paranoia sets in when you can't see a Dunkin Donuts, ATM or CVS (Hyannis has 5 DD, 2 CVS, 7ATM)
  • You've pulled out of a side street and used your car to block oncoming traffic so you can make a left
  • You've bragged about saving money at The Christmas Tree Shop
  • You know what a "regular coffee" is!
  • You can navigate a rotary without a problem
  • You use the words "wicked" and "good" in the same sentence
  • You know what a frappe is
  • Saint Patrick's Day is your second favorite holiday
  • You drink tonic and would never consider using it on your hair
  • You never say "Cape Cod" you say "The Cape"
  • You went to Old Sturbridge Village and Plymouth Plantation at least once, in elementary school, but never to Bunker Hill
  • You know the Mass Pike and 495 create some sort of strange weather dividing line
  • You actually get all these jokes and pass them on!
