I rep the black and gold every day on my vacation hoping someone will ask me if I am from Pittsburgh.

Yinzers that are “reaaaaally” in the city-bet yo ass.

I actually get super pumped (and not in a mocking manner, at all) when I hear someone who’s got a really thick Pittsburgh accent.

It’s part of our heritage that’s sadly associated with “lower classes”, like the Townie accent in Boston.

I don’t want it to go away.

Diaper first.

Right, then the under bridge to catch the stuff from the overflowing diaper. Kicked that can for about 35 years...

I live in my brother-in-law’s former house, next to my husband’s grandmother, where we have Sunday dinners of stuffed cabbage and pierogis, and everyone has the same hairstyle that we did thirty years ago. There may or may not be signed Penguins memorabilia adorning the dining room.

I once worked with a guy who lived on the same block that he grew up on and that his wife grew up on and both families still all lived there.

My anecdote is totally autobiographical. Very common situation in North Versailles. 😂


ohiwen t1_izsx6t7 wrote

There def is sports memorabilia in the dining room and dare I say some kind of Pittsburgh sports commemorative glass set or decorative plates? (Not ever to actually use tho!)

Bonus Yinz points if they involve the 1970s era Steelers.

Omitting “to be” from sentences.


“The lawn needs mowed.” compared to “The lawn needs to be mowed.”

I never knew this was a specific regional thing for most my life. Honestly, I find the former more efficient.


hydrospanner t1_izpm49w wrote

Yeah, that particular weird-ism (called "dropping the infinitive") was one of those things for me that sounded completely normal until it was pointed out to me...and ever since, it's like nails on a chalkboard every time I hear it.


Another one like that for me was "slippy".

No. Go to Jersey or Mass and you don't see half the store wearing Giants or Pats jerseys.


ScratchMoore t1_iznhyx3 wrote

I didn’t want to get specific with the jersey, but in my head it’s always a Sweed or Mendenhall jersey. Never a current player. Maybe I should’ve added the part about “former borderline player” haha?


hydrospanner t1_izplhvk wrote

I don't think I ever once saw anyone wearing a Limas Sweed jersey, other than Limas Sweed.

​ fact I'm not 100% sure they didn't just give him an old leftover Neil O'Donnell jersey they had lying around.

*Pow (I think. Haven’t heard it in years.) Once about 6-7 years ago I was selling a car on Craigslist. I went back and fourth with an interested party via email and we agreed on a price. We scheduled a time for him to come see the car. He rings my bell and I open the door and effing Scott Paulsen is standing there. I text him every so often to see if he still has the car.

hydrospanner t1_izpmbpo wrote

The best is when you find yourself using landmarks that haven't been there your entire life.


You just learned it because you heard your parents using it so much, and so any time you're talking to anyone their age, you just fucking use that landmark because that's what they're going to know.
