Garbage plates?

Quoting Anonymous 5: When we first moved to the US buying milk in a carton or plastic jug was the weirdest thing!

I'm in NY. I'll wait for others to tell me what weird things we do because it's all normal to me.

Quoting MistyMoo: I'm from Ontario and we buy our milk in bags lol

You eat garbage plates!

Haha, yeah I guess I do too. But when I start drinking I have a drunk accent that makes everything literal so I will say Mary land

Quoting Anonymous 31: I’ve met tourists from Maryland that pronounce Maryland like this : murra-lin

Quoting Anonymous 2: Maybe that’s it. I’m from the northeast part, near Delaware so we have the really boring area. Lol

Quoting franciaanya:

Yeah. I can tell if a person is from MD by the way they pronounce to or you. There's other words, too. That could be a Baltimore thing, though. Other people that I know from Maryland also have a distinct way of pronouncing their words but it's not the same as people from Baltimore. It could be a regional thing, though. Maybe ethnicity, too? One of my old soldiers was from Maryland but I don't think he was from a city. He didn't have an accent.

Quoting Anonymous 2: Really I feel like we have the least bit of an accent which probably does sound weird compared to surrounding areas. My dads family is from Virginia and they just sound, well, Virginian lol

Quoting franciaanya: Maryland accents are hilarious.

Quoting Anonymous 2: I’m from Maryland and we have nothing interesting! Not even a fun accent. Lol

The only weird thing I can find is I guess everyone from Colorado drives a suburb. That and, we actually have a larger population of Texans than we do Coloradans. At least in the city I'm from.

Ewm I've never heard of that before. No one I know goes to Rochester and I've never been there.
