You know you are from Rhode Island if
You order "coffee milk" not chocolate. (Remember Eclipse Coffee Syrup?)

You order coffee "regular" - don't worry any RI waitress knows what you mean. Coffee, sugar and milk.

You eat Johnny Cakes.

You drink frappes (kinda like a milkshake).

You love "grinders" (hoagies, subs)

You love "steamers" (small clams)

You love stuffed "quahogs" - pronounced KO-HOGS (large hard-shelled clams w/ stuffing)

You understand NY System weiners. (little hot dogs with a gravy, and finely chopped onion and celery salt). Hmmm... miss it

When you shop at a supermarket, you use a cart, not a buggy, not a basket,

You love Del's frozen lemonade.

You order a hamburger w/ the works which means no tomato (relish, mustard, ketchup & onion - that's it)

Ordering tea is hot tea not iced tea (English-style w/ milk and sugar).

When your car hits another car, it's called an accident, not a wreck.

Any other original Rhode Islanders here? Originally from Newport.

Like to hear more of some regional talk.
