I'm a born and bred Staten Islander. I make fun of my borough all the time, but it still annoys me when outsiders try to do the same. I automatically think, Have you been here? Have you lived here your whole life? Probably not.

1. "I voted for Hillary Clinton."

2. "I've never been to the Jersey Shore."

3. "EDM is stupid."

4. "My family dinners are too quiet."

5. "The Staten Island Train is so clean."

6. "People compliment me on my accent."

7. "Royal Crown is awful."

8. "Can't wait to take the ferry!"
