1. The misinterpretation of sarcasm
No I’m not being a bitch, I’m just kidding.
Southerners walk like they have nowhere to be. Stop staring at all the buildings – walk with a purpose people!
Does anyone use blinkers south of the Mason-Dixon Line?
4. Lack of good pizza and bagels
It’s baffling how an entire region of a country can mess up dough. Pizza and bagels are awful down here, and I can’t explain why.
5. The reaction to “I’ve never been to (insert Southern fastfood restaurant).”
You would think I had two heads from the face I get when telling Southerners I’ve never been to Bojangles’. I hadn’t even heard of it before moving here.
No I’m not “tawking” weird, you guys are. Yeah - you guys. Y'all just isn’t natural. I know I’m from New Jersey, but no one talks like the cast of Jersey Shore.
Learning how to pump your own gas when you go down to a Southern school is like a right of passage. I still prefer Jersey laws – what’s better than sitting in your car while someone else does it for you?
8. Trying to explain the North Jersey versus South Jersey divide
To put it simply they’re like different states. North Jersey says taylor ham, South says pork roll. North says subs, South says hoagies. Devils fans in the north, Flyers fans in the south. It goes on…
9. Cursing is frowned upon
