Then I also say crick instead of creek except when it's a name. Ex: I say Battle Creek (city) and, "got shwasted and fell in the crick."
Are you in Nebraska ? Battle Creek is half an hour from me no lie.... Creepy bc it's less then 1500 people lol I recognize your profile pic tho

Did anybody "flick" school? How about eat Hollywood Squares?

Also, (this is kind of offensive to those with SN kids ~ sorry, not meaning to be rude) anybody mentally challenged was called a "Weaver" because it was the special school in the county for those children. We used in place of another offensive word. <hangs head> we were kids then though, it was the 80's & early '90s.

dude if I don't use that phrase 20 times a day lol but never mean it


I was born n raised in small town tx and I've heard nearly every one of these tx phrases lol. I agree with the poster who said its probably related to city vs country.

Also still say things like- fixin to, quit that hoot in' and a hollerin', aint nothin for it (means its hopeless), and "gonna beat the tar outta ya' (NEVER do!).

Here in NC they say buggy instead of cart (shopping cart), and uptown instead of downtown.

As far as niceness- tx and nc have super nice people but TX (small town) there's nothing to compare. We went to OR for a 6 weeks college session and one time passed the teacher in the grocery store- she didn't even bother acknowledging us even though she clearly saw us. She wasn't mad (I checked later) but they just don't do that there. In tx that wouldn't fly- you gotta have a 20 min convo and probably would end up with a dinner date lol.

I'm going to beat you into next week is common.

Middle names mean business.

When we talk about a freeway we put the in front of the number, like "the 5" instead of I-5.

That is all I can think of for now.
I'm from a different part of CA and the items in bold are also common here, but putting "the" in front of a freeway is not done in the Bay Area. We always gave my aunt (who lived in southern CA) a hard time when she referred to 280 as "the 280"

But I can't really think of anything else that is specific to my area. We say things as they are written (yep, we say ALL the letters and don't add random letters to other words) and use correct grammar. We're kind of boring in that respect I guess.

Re: Things people say where you live.....

BFE refers to anywhere that is way too far away, I used it in terms of parking but I have been know to say to my sister maybe, You wanna go all the way out to BFE to that yard sale??
Also my Dad uses BFT for Big F@&$ing Truck, when my DS was 2/3 yo he thought that was hysterical hear my son say with his little speech issues going on oh and how he would encourage it!!
Which reminds me when your kiddos say BFE and use it properly kinda makes you cringe a hair. The in theory are cursing but not really.
Oh and I totally forgot I only heard my neighbors Granny say this ever and I love it and I still use it on the neighbors adult son when he aggravates me
I'm gonna slap you asleep! Ha so funny!
