    You know you're from Jersey when:
    You don't think of fruit when people mention "The Oranges."
    You know that it's called Great Adventure, not Six Flags.
    A good, quick breakfast is a hard roll with butter.
    You've known the way to Seaside Heights since you were seven.
    You've eaten at a diner, when you were stoned or drunk, at 3 A.M.
    You know that the state isn't one big oil refinery.
    At least three people in your family still love Bruce Springsteen, and you know the town Jon Bon Jovi is from.

    You know what a "jug handle" is.
    You know that WaWa is a convenience store.
    You know that the state isn't all farmland.

    You know that there are no "beaches" in New Jersey--there's the shore--and you don't go "to the shore," you go "down the shore." And when you are there, you're not "at the shore"; you are "down the shore."



    You know how to properly negotiate a circle.
    You knew that the last sentence had to do with driving.
    You know that this is the only "New" state that doesn't require "New" to identify it (try . . . Mexico . . . York . . . Hampshire-- doesn't work, does it?).

    You know that a "White Castle" is the name of BOTH a fast food chain AND a fast food sandwich.
    You consider putting mayo on a corned beef sandwich a sacrilege



    You don't think, "What exit?" is very funny.
    You know that people from the 609 area code are "a little different."
    Yes, they are!
    You know that no respectable New Jerseyan goes to Princeton--that's for out-of-staters.



    The Jets-Giants game has started fights at your school or local bar.
    You live within 20 minutes of at least three different malls.
    You refer to all highways and interstates by their numbers.
    Every year you have at least one kid in your class named Tony.
    You know the location of every clip shown in the Sopranos opening credits.



    You've gotten on the wrong highway trying to get out of the mall.
    You know that people from North Jersey go to Seaside Heights, and people from Central Jersey go to Belmar, and people from South Jersey go to Wildwood.

    It can be no other way.

    You weren't raised in New Jersey--you were raised in either North Jersey, Central Jersey or South Jersey.
    You don't consider Newark or Camden to actually be part of the state.
    You remember the stores Korvette's, Two Guys, Rickel's, Channel, Bamberger's and Orbach's.




    You also remember Olympic Park and Palisades Amusement Park.
    You've had a boardwalk cheese steak and vinegar fries.
    You start planning for Memorial Day weekend in February.
    And finally . . .
    You've NEVER, EVER pumped your own gas.
    AMEN!!! Thank God I am from Jersey! :cool:

    Highlands, New Jersey - Elevation 240 feet.

    Cadillac Mountain, Bar Harbor, Maine - Elevation 1,532 feet. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cadillac_Mountain

    You also forgot to mention that New Joisey is the burial place of Jimmy Hoffa, and has the smelliest (oil refinerys & pig farms) major highway, the Joisey Pike, in the entire United States. :D

    I wish I could get a pizza out here like they serve at Vic's in Bradley Beach! And there used to be a sub shop in Asbury Park that made the best subs I ever had. The cops closed it down years ago because they were selling fireworks out the back(yes, fireworks, like anything else that is fun, is illegal in Jersey).
    When I grew up there, we had never heard of Pizza Hut, or any of those other chain restaurants. They couldn't compete with places like Vic's in Bradley Beach, Mom's Kitchen, or Napolitano's, in Neptune.
