You Know you're NOT from Long Island when...
You have a bank account...

...and it has money in it.

So very true. For the first time in a long time, I don't compute how much credit card debt I'm going to accumulate by going to Walmart. When I lived on LI, I used to dread birthdays and holidays because they meant spending money I didn't have. I actually look forward to them now and that's such a nice feeling.

This board is fun, since I started reading it I have realized that people will fight, argue, even plot revenge over anything from neighbors parking to the lunch menu at an elementary school.

It's far more engaging than any reality show and besides some of us try to be constructive......

You know you are an ex-LIer when your life revolves around posting on the LI CD forum bashing LI and talking up the promise land... NC and VA... All while you secretly plan to come back after realizing you screwed your children out of the best possible education and future.

Doubtful on all counts. Once again, the Long Island school system is not the main reason the Island produces so many semi-finalists in the Intel STS.
By the way, my kids have been able to actually benefit from my schools, rather than look at the achievements of a school they'll never get to go to.
So where do your kids go to school?
