You Know You Live On The Southside of Chicago When...

...you aren't even Irish but you go the the St. Patrick's Day parade religiously.

...you know a "guy" for everything from tires to cut rate beef steaks.

...you honk before pulling from an alley into the street.

...you've purchased the most useful things at the swap meet.

...whether you're white, black, Hispanic, you know at least one other language conversationally.

...you aren't afraid of pitbulls and think they are the friendliest dogs on the planet.

...you never show up to a barbecue empty handed.

...you enjoy your wine out of a red solo cup.

...you honk on street cleaning day so your neighbors move their cars too.

...you and your neighbor get together to shovel snow in front of the homes of elderly people.

...your idea of a good time is a grill, some beer and a handful of friends.

...you've agreed with nearly everything on this list.
