    Welcome to Hampton Roads

    Advertisements
    Ok, so this was sent to me in an email and i thought it was funny, b/c parts of it are unfortunatly true, anyway I just thought i'd share

    You know you're a Hampton Roads resident when.....

    * You have to adopt a surrogate professional sports team because you live in the largest metropolitan area without one.

    * You can name at least three of Mike Joynes' law partners.

    * You can finish the "Beach Ford" song.

    * You know Mount Trashmore is a real place, not a joke.

    * You can see another 7-11 from the 7-11 you're currently at.

    * You know that 64 West in Chesapeake is actually going east.

    * Any westbound trip out of town you've ever made involves at least one tunnel.

    * You can name at least three underwater tunnels within a twenty mile radius of your home.

    * You've been friends with, dated or married a sailor.

    *GIRLS- You've dated a sailor and he has cheated on you. I don't think that one is true!!!

    * You can say "Norfolk" while sounding neither obscene nor incorrect.

    * You don't stop and look skyward when aircraft fly over.

    * You know what a Food Lion is.

    * Newport News is not a catalog, it is a city.

    * It's not a peninsula, it's the Peninsula. With a capital P.

    * You can name all the I-64 spurs.

    * It's not Portsmouth, it's P-town. (Yo!!)

    * The Strip isn't a nudie bar, it's a tourist trap along the
    oceanfront.

    * To you, Scope isn't just mouthwash.

    * The Boathouse doesn't actually dock any boats.

    * You know Dam Neck and Birdneck aren't necks of any kind.

    * You don't mind the jet noise.

    * You don't slow down in the tunnel, because it's not a big deal.

    * Its normal for seven cities to be linked in almost every
    conceivable way.

    * You can leave town for years at a time and come back to find the same segments of roads still under construction.

    * Its Seven Five Seven, not Seven Fifty-Seven.

    * An inch of snow closes everything down. 3 inches is a blizzard.

    * MacArthur was not only a brilliant general, but is a fine shopping establishment.

    * You don't laugh when you hear "Rip Rap Road."

    * You know that Norfolk International Airport isn't really an international airport.

    * No, you're not hallucinating. Those are mermaids.

    * You know the real reason we haven't been hit by a hurricane in the past several years is because of Pat Robertson.

    * You've never NOT gone to an establishment to avoid a PETA demonstration.

    * And....... If you had a nickel for every OBX sticker you saw on the road, you'd be a rich person by now.

    I am from there but I haven't lived there in 11 years so it was nice to read those things. It really brought a lot back to me.

    SO much of that is true! lol

    This one isn't for me though.. I am from the Boston area and up there P-town is what everyone calls Province Town (near Cape Cod) which is known for having a HUGE gay population lol.

    It's not Portsmouth, it's P-town.

    Those are so true and so funny. I still don't really like it here that much I prefer small town living but I do enjoy being located near four malls that only take me 20 minutes to get to them if not less !!!
