You're like a real Pittsburgher if you understand Pittsburghese.

I've been to Pittsburgh so many times in the last 10 years to see the Pens and visit some friends, I consider myself an honorary "yinzer." I know how it "sounds" but actually seeing it in print made me LOL. :)

Flip flops is Pittsburghese?

Never knew that...

The one I CAN'T get over is "buggy," feels so bizarre to show "shopping cart," and I've gotten strange looks in Msp grocery stores while referencing my "buggy"

What about running the sweeper? My roommates in college always chuckled about that one.
