You are reading page 5 of you might be from ohio if:. If you want to start from the beginning Go to First Page.

I loved the list. As a tried and true "Buckeye" there are a few other things I have noticed. Those of us from south of I-70 are sometimes referred to as hillbillies (but that is ok) Hi to all you other southerners! I lived 125 miles east of Cincy on old US 52. I have lived for the last 2 years in Baltimore, Md :p It sure isn't home.

Hoopies may be more of a WV term, I know my grandpa was one....at least that was what they called him....

anyone in Ohiya red up their house when company comes, or was that just my family?

Yes, I heard "red up the house" LOLOL My family didn't use that term though. As for the vacuum thing. My husband STILL laughs when he hears me say "I'm going to sweep the carpet" Havta forgive him, he can't help he was raised in "Balmer" (Baltimore). I'm sure my twang and some of my euphenisms have been a subject of discussion among my peers in the MICU here. LOL:rotfl:

Ok I have couple to add...

When people say "SIMULAR" when they are meaning "SIMILAR"

When People say "WAL-MARTS or J.C. PENNIES" Instead of "WAL-MART/ JC PENNY"

As far as POP goes.. I live in TN I know how that one goes.. I have been to a Resturant before, Im pretty sure it was Golden Carral in Nashville and I was asked what kind of Coke I would like.

There's also "Krogers" instead of Kroger.
