20 signs you’re in the north

So I come from the north of England, and I never make lists on my blog, like, ever. So I thought It’d be a nice thing to do. If you come from the north (I come from Sheffield) you can probably relate to these points, also feel free to comment and add your own. If you come from outside of England then you can get a feel of what it’s like.

1. You know whether you have peas, gravy or curry sauce on your chips. This option will probably stick with you for the rest of your life.

2. Everyone goes on about people in the north have conversations with strangers on buses, but we hardly ever do.

3. If you don’t thank the bus driver it’s probably because they didn’t accept your student card, or they went very slowly and made you late. Otherwise it’s compulsory to thank them for not killing you.

4. When you go to London you realise nobody has any spacial awareness, it pisses you off when nobody says sorry for bumping into you.

5. You think you have a “proper” accent (for your city) until you go to university or to the south when you realise nobody has a clue what you’re on about. “What’s a chucky egg?” “Oh my gosh did you actually just call me a duck?!”

6.. Gravy is a food group.

7. If you live in Sheffield like me, you’ve probably got nice legs from walking up all the hills. Also when others complain about walking up them, you call them a pussy.

8. Pie is a food group.

9. You are really proud of where you come from, it becomes a religion to you.

10. T-shirt weather is 10 degrees Celsius.


11. You have had disputes over where the north starts and where the south begins. Also if you’re from the midlands, you’re seen as a nobody.


12. The further up north you go the nicer people get… until you get to Glasgow.

13. You can take your drink better than southerners…amateurs

14. You can also go on a night out with £15.

15. You’ve been to the countryside so much it bores the shit out of you..

16. You probably have an old miner’s lamp somewhere in the house, you’re parents are probably saving it encase they become desired and expensive.

17. After you’ve been abroad you crave a slice of Parkin and a “proper” cup of tea.

18. When you were younger you went on holiday/day trips to Scarborough/Skegness/Whitby. Also probably made your dad win you something on the grabber machines which cost 20p a pop, oh and who doesn’t love 2p slot machines?!

19. It goes Breakfast, Dinner, Tea. ‘Nuff said.

20. You probably call someone you don’t like “pal” and someone who you do like a “dickhead”
