For me, NYC and New Jersey are depressing places.
It seemed as if almost every time I spoke with some one when I was there went something like this:

"Can I have breakfast special # 2?" "Where you from, boy?"

"How do I get to...?" "Where you from, boy?"

"Thanks, have a nice day" "Where you from, boy?"

I can remember walking into a bar one afternoon after work, and I asked for a bottle of beer. I got to hear,"I smell yankee", "where you from, boy" and "why don't you do yourself a favor and get your yankee ass out of here".

Yes, the girls were hot, but the one I dated put up with so much crap for going out with a yankee from her friends and family she dropped me after a few weeks.

As I said before, I will never go back.
