Asshole Yankees.
I swear I'm moving to New York and I'm going to walk around bitching about "Thats not how we do it in Florida". If these people love NY so much why are they here getting on MY nerves?

Oh yeah, I'm familiar with them. They move to Florida because they hate NY then immediately try to turn the community they live in into another NY

Port St Lucie has an official that moved here 6 years ago from NY. Considers it a selling point while running for office


My apologies to all the "Yanks" on here. Seems New Yorkers do this everywhere.


I agree, my response is well, go back home. It doesn't make any sense to me either. why would you move and expect the rest of the states to be just like where you left?

Right? My thought is-"No it is not like where you came from this is a different place and no we have no desire to be more like your particular hometown."

@OpposingOpposum or like you for that matter. we hear it all the time ! Southerners are so stupid, Southerners are so slow,Southerners are so lazy, I can't find any good spaghetti sauce their list of complaints go on and on and on .again ,my response is well looks like you need to go back home!

@Kojaksmom yep!


Listen we're not all that bad. Except when we travel. And when we're home... Ok, we're all that bad.


Old DT is your quintessential New Yorker, loud, brash and egotistical.

I’m surprised New Yorkers don’t support their man.


A Texan called me a Yankee once. Being from the West coast, I turned my head to the side like a dog does after hearing something so spectacularly stupid. I then proceeded to call that Texan an easterner. It amused me.


I found out on a podcast that they're moving to Florida and North Carolina because of taxes and what not to high ,first they usually try Florida than they move to.North Carolina

Good let NC have em.

@OpposingOpposum we have plenty in there even worse here


The East coast mentality is very standoffish where West coast is very Superficial. To a New Yorker give it right back to them they will respect you more.

Oh I do! I don't care if they respect me I just want them to leave me alone. I don't give a shit about NY frankly.
I don't want to hear about Jesus or New York or the Kardashians or anything else that rots the brain.

@OpposingOpposum City mentality does nothing for me. I have lived on both coasts. I had spent some time in South Carolina when I was young the people were sweet there. This is mostly why I live in a very small town 80 miles from nowhere now.

You're exactly right @azzow2. I believe the standoffishness you see in large eastern cities, especially NYC, is largely attributed to a lack of personal space people perceive in such densely populated areas. And yes, if you banter back with them, you will get, "hey, you're all right!". They don't respect people easily intimidated. Growing up there in my early teen years, you have no choice but to learn how to carry yourself in the city. And yes, the west coast, my ancestral home, is more superficial, at least in general terms. I find Colorado to be a "just about right" kind of mix, but still need my frequent trips to San Francisco, Seattle and NYC in order to keep my edge fed. I will say this about New Yorkers - I generally love to be around them and banter with them, but if you make a friend with one, you have a friend for life.


How you doing? I’m here in S Florida... I’m from NY where the pizza and bagels are better, real bread is everyplace and we tolerate people from Florida.

Bah! Humbug! Carpet bagger!




I always thought the Boston people were the most annoying down here 🙂

Nope, apparently it’s me🙂


LOL. I grew up in NYC, and it seems like all my friends parent's always spoke of retiring and moving to Fla-rida. Having been through NYC winters, I could kind of get that. But they take NY expectations with them, yes? And no other place could possibly be urbane enough. I remember being on one of those bus torture excursions from Cancun to Chichen Itza, that included a meal at a local restaurant near the park. It was Yucatan cuisine, and a couple from NYC on the tour, seated near us, complained they got "better Mexican food in Manhattan". Uh.....shit, never mind.

Same expeirence the new yorkers never stop complaining the whole cruise.


Isn't there some sort of repellent for situations like those ?

I wish!


Erm that would be "Asshole New Yorkers". I was in Kennebunkport, ME once listening to NYers bitch about their entirely fresh fish. And how it would be so much fresher in NY?
I was looking across the table at someone else from Massachusetts and just dying a little bit inside.

It was a bit like having Seinfeld show up? rofl


Sounds like Chicago people here in SW Michigan. We call them F.I.P.S., F__cking Illinois People. Man, they are obnoxious, and they can't drive!

Nothing personal to anyone in the group from the Chicago area


Making me laugh! I am from NYC, I know what you mean.
