Detroit is officially an “it spot.” This brings with it all manner of invasive species, including but not limited to New Yorkers and Brussels sprouts. In case you find yourself confused between who has been here and who’s fresh off the U-Haul, we’ve provided you with this handy guide to understanding the difference between the Motor City’s transplants and locals.
Transplants: Obey traffic signals and laws.
Locals: Consider stop lights and signs to be suggestions.
Transplants: Go jogging for recreation.
Locals: Might be seen riding a bike, but only if the weather is nice.
Transplants: Attempt a fancy French pronunciation of “Gratiot.”
Locals: Have no qualms saying the sh** word in any form.
Transplants: Can’t believe how lucky they are to have “discovered” Detroit.
Locals: Remember fondly when visitors were few.
