    Sharkie, ya know I shudder to think that half of these apply to me, and I'm in New Hampshire!! Suddenly I feel the need to shower & remove the feeling of our southern neighbor!

    I had a collection of "drivers from MA" in an old email folder, but it seems to have gone where all the great emails go! Oh well. This thread could be good!

    I have to take exception here, too. If it's a cop doing the cursing because someone is poking along just doing 70, you are probably in Atlanta.

    I know what you mean. I used to feel this tremendous weight (literally) lift off of me when I drove up 13, 101, 113, or whatever road I happened to be on to get to Nashua, Concord, or the elsewhere.

    When I crossed the state line to go back I just got depressed, almost immediately.

    Did you know that a few years ago people were buying so many big ticket items in NH that Mass. passed a tax law "requiring" you to pay sales tax on those items when you paid income taxes at the end of the year. I don't think they have collected much yet.

    P.S. click on the link at the end of the message and see the New Hampshire list. It's pretty good. The one from RI is hilarious (if you've ever been there.)

    Default my turn.....,.

    North Carolina

    You've gotten used to the smell of cow manure on a car trip to Raleigh.

    Saying "y'all" isn't just a cute expression; it actually means something.

    There are big labrador retrievers in the back of every truck.

    You give directions using KFC and Waffle House as landmarks.

    You still see Dale Earndheart tributes on cars.

    You can't imagine life without Bojangles' sweet tea

    Your annual church fundraiser always deals with bbq and potato salad

    You have a sunburn from May to October

    Your 'heavy winter clothing' consists of some turtleneck sweaters, a fuzzy jacket, and your daddy's boots

    Your family has fried chicken once a week

    You can tell the difference between cotton fields and tobacco fields while driving

    One of your neighbors has a confederate flag hanging on their front porch

    Those "damn yankees" are taking over your school/church/workplace/neighborhood...

    You've been "properly raised", and yankees love it when they hear you say "ma'am" and "sir"

    You get your carbs from biscuits, rolls, pancakes, and grits

    You know the difference between a "redneck" and a "hick".

    You own at least one surf shop or seafood restaurant shirts.

    No matter what those people in ohio say, we are still "first in flight"

    The Coca-Cola 600 is as big as the Super Bowl

    You prefer Chick-fil-a to KFC

    You know pastry is a chicken stew, not a dessert item.

    Every time you visit someone you’re offered something to eat and a glass of tea.

    Your granddaddy always wore overalls and your grandma always wore an apron.

    In summer you have home-grown tomatoes with every meal.

    When it rains and the creek rises, everyone gathers to see how high it rose.

    You know the best BBQ is found in Lexington

    You would rather eat at Bojangles's than McDonald's

    You have actually uttered the phrase "It's too hot to go to the pool"

    You faithfully drink Pepsi or Mt. Dew everyday of your life.

    You have your own secret bbq sauce.

    You or your neighbors have more hunting dogs than you have family members.

    You actually get these jokes and pass them on to other friends from North Carolina.

    Ya know, I have been here in NC for just over 4 months and so many of those are true it is not even funny.

    I am waiting for the fun and games of the first snow storm. I hear it's a hoot to watch. The folks can't even drive when it rains so I can imagine what it is like when it snows.

    SAFD46 -

    Wish I could sympathize with you there to give you comfort, but I left Mass. and I don't want to go back. If I go back to New England after school it is going to be ONLY to NH. Even that is getting ruined by all of the M*******s moving in. Pretty soon they'll have sales tax, income tax, tax on tax, and any other kind of freaking tax and the great natural beauty of New Hampshire will be gone.

    Default For the nostalgic former MA residents...

    The Massachusetts Highway Commission has issued the following supplement, which contains statements of policy, clarification of law, and commonsense advice for drivers:
    ·Fire hydrants must always be visible to arriving firetrucks. So when parking next to a hydrant, park on the sidewalk side.
    ·Potholes will continue to be left unfilled because eventually the road will be entirely covered in potholes and thus perfectly flat.
    ·You are still allowed to drive in the breakdown lanes of highways during rush hour. During this time, it is illegal for your car to break down. You alone are responsible for notifying your car(s) of this law.
    ·You can go the wrong way on a one-way street if you do so in reverse gear. Also, the speed limit only applies in the direction indicated by the one-way signs.
    ·In order to insure the privacy of your personal information, do not tell strangers when or in which direction you are turning (via signalling lights, hand signals, etc). The only people who need know your turning intentions are your priest and doctor.
    ·To maintain harmony with the centuries-old aesthetics of Boston roads, new roads will be planned in the traditional way, by plotting the paths of meandering cows that have become drunk on fermented beets. Likewise, local features will continued to be referenced by their Gaelic names. So, "fens" (as in Fenway Park) shall denote a river bank; "kells" shall denote an inn; "yield sign" shall denote a stop sign.
    ·In 1981, all roads in the city of Boston were declared a botanical conservation area and were left to be reclaimed by nature. It is recommended that only off-road vehicles attempt to navigate these roads.
    ·You are reminded that the mass transit system is maintained only as a tourist attraction like the cable cars in Rice-a-Roni commercials and is not designed to move large numbers of people rapidly.
    ·It is safe for all Massachusetts drivers to always ignore a stop sign encountered at a four-way stop, since the other three drivers will have stopped.
    ·All vehicles shall pass automobiles on the left (except within the Boston city limits at rush hour, when wheelchairs are permitted to pass automobiles on the right).
    ·It was at Boston's own Fanueil Hall that Samuel Adams first proclaimed the inalienable rights of "life, liberty, and convenient parking". So, if a parking lot is full, just park anywhere. Likewise, if you're sentenced to a state prison but it's full, go home. Similarly, if a traffic light remains red for an inconvenient amount of time, it is broken, and you should act as you normally do when civilization collapses.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    If you're from Boston:

    You'll know who the cahdnal is, how to take the T to JP and what the blinking red light atop the old Hancock Building means in the summer (in winter it means snow is due).

    If you're smaht, you'll never get cahded at the packie (liquor,or packagestore).

    You only eat italian sausage outside Fenway Pahk before a Sox game with mustid, peppahs-n-onions.

    You might be from Boston if...
    You think of Philadelphia as the midwest.

    You think it's your God-given right to cut someone off in traffic.

    You think there are only 25 letters in the alphabet (no R's).

    You think three straight days of 90+ temperatures is a heat wave.

    All your pets are named after Celtics or Bruins.

    You refer to 6 inches of snow as a "dusting."

    Just hearing the words "New York" puts you in an angry mood.

    You don't think you have an attitude.

    You always 'bang a left' as soon as the light turns green, and oncoming traffic always expects it.

    Everything in town is "a five minute walk."

    When out of town, you think the natives of the area are all whacked.

    You still can't bear to watch highlights from game 6 of the 1986 World Series.

    You have no idea what the word compromise means.

    You believe using your turn signal is a sign of weakness.

    You don't realize that you walk and talk twice as fast as everyone else.

    You're anal, neurotic, pessimistic & stubborn.

    You think if someone is nice to you, they must want something, or are from out of town.

    Your favorite adjective is "wicked."

    You think 63 degree ocean water is warm.

    You think the Kennedy's are misunderstood.

    Default Some personal favorites!

    MASSACHUSETTS DRIVING RULES

    1. A right lane construction closure is just a game to see how many people can cut in line by passing you on the right as you sit in the left lane waiting for the same drivers to squeeze their way back in before hitting the orange construction barrels.

    2. Turn signals will give away your next move. A real Massachusetts driver never uses them. Use of them in Boston may be illegal.

    3. Under no circumstances should you leave a safe distance between you and the car in front of you, or the space will be filled in by somebody else putting you in an even more dangerous situation.

    4. Crossing two or more lanes in a single lane-change is considered "going with the flow."

    5. The faster you drive through a red light, the smaller the chance you have of getting hit.

    6. Never get in the way of an older car that needs extensive bodywork. Massachusetts is a no-fault insurance state and the other driver has nothing to lose.

    7. Braking is to be done as hard and late as possible to ensure that your ABS kicks in, giving a nice, relaxing foot massage as the brake pedal pulsates. For those of you without ABS, it's a chance to stretch your legs.

    8. Construction signs warn you about road closures immediately after you pass the last exit before the backup.

    10. Never pass on the left when you can pass on the right.

    11. Speed limits are arbitrary figures, given only as suggestions and are apparently not enforceable during rush hour.

    12. Just because you're in the left lane and have no room to speed up or move over doesn't mean that a Mass driver flashing his high beams behind you doesn't think he can go faster in your spot.

    18. It is traditional in Massachusetts to honk your horn at cars that don't move the instant the light changes.

    19. Seeking eye contact with another driver revokes your right of way, except in Boston where it acts as an invitation to duel or play chicken.

    21. Remember that the goal of every Massachusetts driver is to get there first, by whatever means necessary.

    22. Real Massachusetts female drivers can put on pantyhose, apply eye makeup and balance the checkbook at seventy-five miles per hour during a snowstorm in bumper-to-bumper traffic.

    23. Real Massachusetts male drivers can remove pantyhose and a bra at seventy-five miles per hour in bumper-to-bumper traffic during daylight hours (who would want to at night?).

    24. Heavy snow, ice, fog, and rain are no reasons to change any of the previously listed rules. These weather conditions are God's way of ensuring a natural selection process for body shops, junkyards, and new vehicle sales.

    By the way: Don't ask what happened to numbers 9, 13-17, or 20 (they have been consumed by the Big Dig)...

    Been there? Try LIVING there!
    Nah. I almost married a girl from Portsmouth, RI though. Closest I came having a thought of living there was with her.

    Although, I did ask my wife to marry me in Newport out on the jetty at a state park near the mansions. Nice place, just too freaking expensive.

    HEHEHEHEHEHEHEHE, if its gonna be like last year, it will suck.

    I had no idea that Male Drivers In Massachusetts wore pantyhose and bras. Isn't that normally a San Francisco thing?.........

    Never been to Provincetown, Northampton, or Harvard Square in Cambridge have you? You would be amazed. Simply amazed.

    See brother, great minds - or is it deviant minds? - think alike.

    Can I still think about moving to NH after PA school? I think I'll fit in OK.

    Default "cow hampsha"

    You Know You're From New Hampshire When...
    You say "wicked" instead of "really."

    Your idea of a good meal is Katie's Country Kitchen

    You drive a Suburu

    Half of your clothes are from L.L. Bean

    You rather vacation in New Zealand than Florida

    Motorcycle Weekend is the highlight of your summer

    When you take your yearly trip into Boston, you "pak ya cah in Havad Yad"

    "Vacation" means going to Burlington for the weekend.

    You go out of state and don't understand what "tax" means on your receipt

    You think of the major food groups as venison, beer, fish, and berries.

    You refer to the Patriots as "we".

    You can identify a Massachusetts accent.

    You can visit Berlin, New London, Bethlehem, Lisbon, Lebanon and Dublin all in one afternoon.

    Down South to you means Boston.

    You consider Manchester exotic.

    You don't have a coughing fit from one sip of Ballantine Ale.

    You can actually pronounce Kancamagus.

    You know what a bubbler is.

    Your neighbor throws a party to celebrate his new machine shed.

    You go out for fish fry every Friday.

    You can recognize someone from Massachusetts from their driving.

    You actually get these jokes and pass them on to other friends from New Hampshire.

    My sister lives in Westmoreland, and my Mom just moved to Keene, and yes they have been emailed this too!
