You know you've been in Pittsburgh way too long when....
You can remember shopping at Joseph Horne Co. and Gimbels (sadly soon to add "Kaufmann's" to this list).
You can remember taking the streetcar "dahntahn".
You can remember going to see a winning Pirates team.
One thing that is terribly annoying about this area is the incredible amount of overweight cigarette smokers. A lot of my extended family is exactly like this. I work for a health insurance company (would like to leave). People complain about the cost of health insurance. Well, it wouldn't cost so damn much if people ate better, drank less and didn't smoke.
Whatever it takes."
