Boston Accents

I heard a repairman next door say that he left his khakis in his jacket.  It took me a few minutes of trying to imagine getting pants into a jacket pocket before I realized he didn't say "khakis" he said "Ka-kees" which in Boston translates to "car keys".

If you are given driving directions with street/exit names in them have the person write down the name!  You could spend an hour looking for the exist to "Wusta" before you realize it is spelled Worchester.

Worcester. When I moved to Texas, I couldn't understand why people would offer me a pin when I needed a writing utensil.
