Someone is Local

You know someone is local in the following cities:
 
Seattle – He walks in the rain with only a hoodie. It rains all the time in Seattle. If you walk in the rain with an umbrella you are not local.
 
Salt Lake City – He drives around business as usual in heavy snow. If you are afraid to drive in the snow you are not local.
 
New York - He says "the city" and expects everyone to know that this means Manhattan.
 
San Francisco – He says “Bay Area” and expects everyone to know that this means San Francisco Bay Area.
 
Chicago – He describes things as big huge. I got big huge slice of pizza.
 
Los Angeles = He believes Mexican food is a dietary staple.
 
Dallas – He drives a pick up truck which is always empty.
 
Las Vegas – He feels chilly when the weather is 90 (that is 32.22 celsius)
 
If you know of a city where you can easily recognize a local, please write to me.

  2. If you are behaving like an idiot or committing crimes (or both), then you are local to Washington D.C.
    And likely to be a politician.
    Otherwise you're from out of town.

    1. Thanks for your comments Bob. You should know better because you lived in Washington D.C. for several years.

  3. I got one.
    Honolulu, Hawaii (or anywhere in Hawaii).
    If you see a person walking around wearing a Hawaiian shirt, that person is definitely a tourist.
    Do you know what local Hawaiians wear in Hawaii?
    Just regular brand name gear.
    Nike, Adidas, Polo, Fila, Tommy Hilfiger, etc.

  6. These days Bay area folks have started North Bay and South bay, no? At least the Indian techies there. There are few IT jokes about Bangalore that might be similar along these lines. One of them is what languages do Bangaloreans know? - C, Java, Python
