Really good pizza
You're more of a pizza snob than you know. Unless you move to New York or Chicago, chances are your pizza situation will only get worse. No, really -- some people just are clueless when it comes to making a good pie. Whether it’s from a chain, square, gourmet, cheap, expensive, etc., in Detroit, you’re guaranteed that your pizza will be damn delicious. Elsewhere, not so much.
Our cynical & sarcastic sense of humor
If you’ve left Detroit, you were probably initially stunned at how happy everyone in your new town seems. They smile, they greet each other, they seem relaxed and chill -- like they’re content with their lives or something. Coming from Detroit, this attitude can be a bit alarming, yet charming at the same time. But all the fun and games end when you make your first cynical joke and you’re met by someone suggesting you start taking medication. It’s real, folks. The Detroit sense of humor is one possessed by a select and lucky few.
