Californians do, fa sho. It's a dead giveaway that they're not "one of us."

Not true! Not true! I only say "the" in California! Once I get back home, I drop it...just sounds odd using "the" with 35, 281, 90, etc...

Hope this elementary school level illustration I made helps. lol Though, just a clarification the loops aren't perfect circles nor are the freeways that straight.

  • Downtown/Central Loop
  • Loop 410 (410)
  • Loop 1604
The black lines are the interstates and state freeways.

Heathens! How are we suppose to know if they're locals or we're suppose to hate them? If you move here from California, do everything in your power to keep that fact a secret.
