when you're used to people using the word "all's" in a sentence and they're dead serious about it. Example: "All's ya got to do is go down the rmv..."

We don't use nor seem to need the letter 'R' except when it starts a word! Overall our living costs except for the big cities is still better than most of the country considering what we have all around us.

LMAO that is absolutely the best!!!!

As for the guys that think Mass. has bad taxation, while I agree. My sister lives on Long Island , NY. Her property taxes are 5 times my own. Not an extravagant neighborhood, nor home. Crazy taxes!!

You know you are from Massachusetts when you are happy to find and buy a broke down fixer-upper cottage on a quarter acre lot that abuts a muffler shop and a fast food joint for $300,000, considering that you could buy a brick 4 bedroon two bath ranch with a two stall garage that is in primo condition in Florida that is also canal front property.

You see snow falling the next day after a 50+ degree weekend in March and it seems normal.
