HUMOR - You are from Boston if...
You are from Boston if...
You don't think you have an attitude or an accent
Your best qualities are being anal, neurotic, pessimistic & stubborn.
You look for the above qualities in your mate, which is why families are so small.
You can cogently explain what 'down east' means.
You think Philadelphia is always putting on airs especially because it is in the Midwest.
Thanksgiving is not a national holiday, but a time to reaffirm why your relatives left England back in 1620 in the first place.
You know New Yorkers are a deeply disturbed lot who wish they had the good fortune to live in the civilized world, Boston.
You don't consider a nor'easter a massive storm, just nature's way of refilling Quabbin Reservoir.
You refer to 6 inches of snow as a "dusting."
Your children are named after Red Sox, Patriots, Celtics or Bruins players.
You brand a player who signs with the Yankees a "traitor".
When it comes to driving, you believe using a car's turn signal is a sign of weakness.
You always 'bang a left' as soon as the light turns green. Oncoming traffic always expects it and wouldn't know what to do if you didn't. You are actually being considerate.
You understand that a "common law" green light is one that it has been red so long, it must be broken. So its OK to run through it.
You don't consider it unusual to run a changing light and then see five other cars do the same in your rear view window.
Cutting someone off in traffic is a right just like Opening Day at Fenway is a no-work holiday.
You believe driving in a contact sport with rotaries as the ultimate game of chicken.
You don't realize that you walk, talk and eat twice as fast as relatives who live elsewhere.
You think if someone is nice to you, they are from out of town or a recently escaped patient.
You think Harvard is misunderstood.
You consider the September U-Haul invasion a pestilence of biblical proportions.
And finally, you know anyone who laughed at any of these statements, is from some other town in New England.
