I was born and raised in Boston, and I use all of the above. Smile

I’m now living in the south, and I recently said “y’all” and cringed a little bit. I never thought I’d say it!

People always make fun of me for saying “Down the shore” When I talk about going to the Jersey Shore. It’s a Philly thing..

@SoontobeMrsA:

Upstate, NY here! We use wicked and blinker. Funny, I thought everyone used the term blinker. Guess I learn something new everyday.

I’m from Boston too!  When I was in college people always thought it was weird that I said “Bureau” instead of “dresser”. 

Also… people have now begun using “wicked” as an adjective which really annoys me for some reason.  You can’t say “oh that movie was so wicked”… ummmmm, wicked what?!

I use all those words except pissa. I was born & raised in Boston and I never ever hear people use the word pissa.

Upstater too — we use wicked and blinker! I lived in RI for a while and was so confused by words like Bubbla and Packie. WTH?!

Heh, then I lived in the city where sandwiches are referred to as “wedges” but I always called then a “sub”. I had no effing clue was a wedge was until I met Fiance and he explained it to me (and that was after a year of city living!!).

I know there was a post recently on “cola”, “pop” and “soda”. I always say soda!

When you say funny words, are those slang words? I was born and raised in Philly and I could list a lot of slang words we used.

Minnesota here and we say blinker for “turn signal” as well. I think that one is pretty common but I’ve never heard the rest used.
