    Summer traffic.

    This applies to all of those who live on the "Jersey Shore" area of South Jersey, but it's a doozy. Summer traffic can make even the most cool, calm, and collected person freak out.

    Being accused of being a Giants fan.

    Just because our brethren to the north have chose to like the geographically confused team, doesn't mean we make the same stupid mistake.

    Being asked if we're from "Joisey."

    No, we are not from Joisey, only people from Staten Island and Staten Island transplants say that. Please stop saying it.

    Exit 7S on the Expressway.

    We avoid this area at all costs in the summer, especially on the weekends. The traffic is backed up and doesn't move for what feels like the entire weekend.

    People thinking all of New Jersey is the same.

    Do not confuse us with our friends to the north. Every area in New Jersey is distinctly different and none of us like to get confused with being like the other. Is it weird? Probably, but we have all accepted our roles.

    Everyone who’s not from New Jersey.

    About a month back an Instagram went viral containing a graphic showing which states hate other states. The findings showed that New York, Pennsylvania, Delaware, and Connecticut hate us. However, New Jersey is unique to the rest of the country. Most states only hate one state, New Jersey hates every single state.
