Perceptions of your region/city; how accurate are they?
I live in upstate NY. Recently when I was paying a bill over the phone, the person expressed surprise that I didn't speak like True Life: I'm From Staten Island. (I'm from Michigan so that wouldn't be happening anyway, but they didn't know that).
Do you feel there is any accuracy with regard to how the person on the street might perceive where you live or where you're from?
Except for Texas. Everybody knows people in Texas ride horses everywhere and rope cattle and cook stuff over a campfire. All the time. And they wear cowboy boots and spurs everywhere.
