Default Re: Pittsburghese useage...

I've lost most of my accent now but let me just have a phone call with my sister and it's amazing how I pick it right back up without even noticing! I still use the terminology. I lived in Florida for a while when I left PA. I'll never foget the reaction I got when I asked for a gumban......I had never heard it called anything else!!!!!!!

BTW, the look at the deli counter when I asked for "chippy chopped ham" was priceless!!! And how many say "throw me down the"....dirty clothes, sweeper, etc...?????? People around here find that strange too.

Thanks to MeanJoe for surprising me with my new sig.
