14 Fabulicious Signs You Live In New Jersey And Wouldn't Have A Nice Day In Any Other State

No one can argue that we don't have the best pizza, bagels and hoagies.

14 Fabulicious Signs You Live In New Jersey And Wouldn't Have A Nice Day In Any Other State

The "Garden State." Whether you grew up, recently moved, or came here for college, there is truly no other state like it. From the food we eat, to the way we drive and talk to one another, Jersey is a unique state and there are a number of signs you that you have lived here.

1. People assume everyone is like the cast of "Jersey Shore."


We all have perfect tans, live the life of the party, and are constantly cursing.

2. You have a "Jersey" accent.

Best of NJ

I'm from "Jewrsey" and I would like "cawfee" with my "begel" and a "woowter" bottle.

3. Pork roll.


The only states that knows how to combine fried pork, eggs, and cheese into a delicious breakfast sandwich.

4. Real pizza.

You don't have to rely on fake pizza chains like Cici's, Papa Johns, Little Caesar's, Pizza Hut, and Dominos.

5. Hoagies.


They are just better than subs, don't try to convince us otherwise.

6. Bagels.

When you travel to other states you just don't like their "fake" bagels. We even have "The Bagel Nook," which has everything from Oreo and Flamming Hot Cheeto bagels to cookie dough and smores cream cheese.

7. Having the mentality that it's OK to drive 20 miles per hour over the speed limit because the person in front of you is doing it too and will get pulled over first.


... then having to look out the window to watch whoever got pulled over.

8. Getting road rage when the person in front of you is actually going the speed limit.


Don't you know that 55 on a major road is just a suggestion?

9. Having the luxury of always living close to a beach.

Enough said.

How do people live without it in other states?

11. You still don't know how to pump your own gas.

If you haven't lived anywhere but Jersey, you know you'll be calling your dad to ask how to pump your gas when you go to another state.

12. You walk extremely fast and can't stand being behind a slow poke.

C'mon! Don't you know we're always in a rush!

13. You hear at least one person swearing wherever you go.

We have no excuses, we just do it. And… it's usually followed by a middle finger.

14. Jughandles.


No one will ever know why we can't just make left turns like every other state.

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
