I grew up in NJ…
I moved away from the east coast years ago. When I first moved to Colorado I went to a gas station and just said , hey how’s it going? Clerk goes in to how her day was and all that.
A year or so later I was driving back east. Went to a gas station in a small town. I asked the clerk how he was doing. He literally said “umpf “ and didn’t lift his head. Not even a fucking word, just noises.
That pretty much sealed me never living back there. Just assholes, all assholes.
I’ve grown to have so much contempt for the east coast and it’s shitty inhabitants over the years. This thread reminded me of the goofy Italian ny’ers that are just giant fucking douche bag.
