Some of them that I think apply to Bay Area
You Know You're From the Bay Area
You get the same off-color email joke from 17 people in the same hour, and one of them is your wife. It's true...except the wife part
Almost all of the companies featured on your resume are no longer in business. This is actually true around this area, not that they are on my resume...
You make $120,000 a year, yet still can't find a place to live. Exorbitant prices here, it's crazy
Your commute time is 45 minutes and you live 8 miles away. Edge cities, commuter traffic...yup
You live an hour or more from the office so that you can afford a larger house.
You stop asking how much things cost, but instead ask "how long will it take?"
You know vast differences difference between Thai, Vietnemese, Chinese, Japanese, Cantonese, and Korean food.
Your home computer contains mostly hardware/software that is not on the consumer market yet.
You go to "The City" on weekends but don't live there because you like your car. This is embarrassingly true
You know that 280 North goes west and that 680 North goes east. Go on it often
It rained ... and the spiders came in ... and the ants came in ... and the mice came in. Those lil bastards need to scram
None of the people you work with are bible thumpers.
Your workplace vending machines dispense "100% natural twig-bars" right next to Jolt cola and Instant Espresso mix.
No one brings radios to work because they listen to RealAudio.
You actually get these jokes and pass them on to other friends from the Bay Area.
