You Know You're From South Jersey If...

I received this list from a listener the other day and I figured you'd get a kick out of it. So here you go!

You know you're from South Jersey if...
- You've had arguments over cheesesteak quality.
- You know what a Wawa is, and know the location of at least 10 of them.
- You know that you should get out of Camden before dark.
- You know how to successfully navigate a traffic circle.
- You've counted the number of topless bars on the Black Horse Pike.
- You refuse to call Hoagies "subs."
- You've almost fallen asleep on the parkway, turnpike and I-295
- You've lived through hurricanes, nor'easters and fires, but have never seen a tornado, earthquake or volcano.
- You have mandatory recycling. Enforced by law.
- You've made a meal out of Tastycakes, Herr's potato chips, and Taylor Pork Roll.
- You know New Years is all about the Mummers and the Polar Bear club
- You can go bowling at 1:30 A.M.
- You know it can be -10 degrees and 70 degrees in January in the same year.
- There's a fruit and vegetable stand down the road.
- You will always say "YO", and you'll say it often.
- You go to another state and sit at a gas station wondering when the people will come out to pump your gas.
- You think North Jersey is a different state and South Jersey deserves its own secession.
- You are tired of people not believing you're from jersey because you don't have a New York accent.
- You have crossed all 5 bridges into Philly at one point in your life.
- You know know what funnel cake and water ice are and think something is wrong with people who refer to them as "fried dough" and "slush".
- You know of at least 3 bars where you know they wouldn't card you.
- You went to StoryBook Land as a kid.
- Every time someone in Hollywood makes fun of Jersey, you're mad and proud at the same time
- You know all of the "back roads" to get everywhere and prefer them to the Expressway.
- You listen to 95.1 WAYV!
