The only thing at the annual May Lilac Festival is snow.

The worst four-letter word you could say is "Fuji".

You can't swim at the beach.

You thought that you had figured out that alternate-parking thing, but wind up with a ticket anyway.

There are no hamburgers, only ground steak.

You can go to any mall on a Saturday and see at least 5 people you either work with, went to school with or dated.

You awaken from a deep sleep, look at the clock and see that it's 6:00, but you have no idea whether it's AM or PM.

When 18+ inches of snow falls overnight, but you never thought of NOT going to work.

You are perplexed when friends from other cities come to visit and want to "see the sights".

In winter if the temperature hits 45 degrees and the sun comes out, people walk around downtown wearing shades and no jackets.

Wegmans is somewhere to go on a Friday night, for entertainment.

You know who Vinnie and Angelo are.

You define summer as three months of bad sledding.

You think that people from Pennsylvania have an accent.

Halloween is snowed out with great regularity.

Those are great--How about these?

When you are born you are issued a wegmans card instead of a SS card.

You complain 80 is to hot in the summer.

On Halloween you are wearing clothes dressed for a severe blizzard and people are saying great custom as grizzly adams. But your not dressed for Halloween you are just dressed normal and getting something left in your car.
