I'm not offended the rest of my family is from Ohio and I've been called a hoopie by them all my life. It's pretty funny to me.

Stella,

That is funny! I am a Buckeye...transplanted in WV...of course, I still say "excuse me" when I belch...I wondered why people down here never do and they look at me like I am WEIRD when I do! I guess it's an OHIO thing...they wouldn't understand!!! :rotfl:

Not necessarily. I'm from CT but my fiance from Cleveland & I've got to remind him to say excuse me after belching. Also my Boston twang gets him all the time. It's a wonder we can understand each other at all. Helps that we met & live in Florida.

This list was emailed to me by a friend.. my husband and his parents and I laughed so hard we had tears in our eyes- it is so true!

When we travelled to SC on assignment, I got a LOT of teasing from saying "pop"

I must admit, I can tell those form Southern Ohio with your first few words you've said (written). I am from Cleveland of course. Having lived in FL, DC, Detroit, and a couple other states, most agree that the Southern Ohioans sound very much like they are from - Kentucky. Many people I have met from other states, especially NY, say we just have no accents at all!

'please?' for 'i didn't hear you' definitely throws people off, definitely an ohio thing....and what about 'boot' for the trunk of your car?

Born in Phoenix but raised in Ohio. I too have heard "warsh" for wash. Has anyone heard "rinsh" for rinse. (Now, c'mon, if you're gonna warsh your clothes, you gotta rinsh them too!) I use the term "you guys" all the time. And yes, Diet Pepsi is my favorite kind of "Pop." I live in a really small village (approx 1500 people) and when I go to work in Toledo (the big city) I tell everyone that I live in "Podunk" since almost no one I work with has heard of my small town. I have also been called a "Hick" witch doesn't bother me one bit. I love to watch the 6 o'clock news (said nooooze) and when I say our it comes out like "hour". I think it is rude when someone does not say "excuse me" after they belch. However, if I didn't hear something that was said, I will say "pardon me" or "come again." I can't recall ever hearing some one say "please" when they have not heard what I said. I love this thread and just had to add my two cents.

I was born in Phoenix and can remember my mom crying when we moved to small town ohio, 'please take me home, i can't live here with these people!'

:lol2: My, how she has adjusted now! And we remind her!

I think maybe the please is a southern ohio thing. They ALL do it around here. I've caught myself....

I have to say, the 'warsh' makes me crazy. And we live near 'warshington' court house (odd name for a town, isn't it?) so, i hear it a lot.

But I love ohio and I wouldn't have it any other way...

anyhoo, i love this thread.... it's good to connect :icon_hug:
