Maybe you're an out-of-towner who needs stuff like this explained to you, or maybe you live in an industrialized NoLibs loft and know everyone that works at Fairmount Bicycles, but you’re not fooling anybody when you say you're from Philly. How do we know? Well, for starters, here're just 20 ways you can tell you're not from Philadelphia:
1. You pronounce it King of Prussia
It’s Kinga-prusha. See also: wooder, beggle, shtreet, or dawter.
2. You thought a trip to Atlantic City would be like The Hangover
Philly natives know that AC, instead of an East Coast Vegas, is someplace where you shouldn't touch the sand, and where gray-haired grandmothers wearing dog sweaters can play slots.
3. You call SEPTA Regional Rail trains by their proper names
Everyone knows you get to Ardmore on the R5 -- none of this “Paoli/Thorndale line” nonsense.
