you from scarborough......i'am



YOU KNOW YOU'RE FROM SCARBOROUGH WHEN...

You're familiar with neighbourhood names like: Agincourt, Malvern, West Hill, Warden Woods, Cedarbrae, Tuxedo Court, Bay Mills, and Wexford.

You lock your car doors when you drive, and only roll the window down if the tempature is over 30 and you absolutely have to.

You perk up every time SCARBOROUGH is mentioned on the news but it's usually related to some crime story (i.e. murder, robbery,
drive-by-shooting/stabbing etc.)

You know what the "RT" is.

You often hear music (or just bass) coming from someone else's car across the street when you are stopped at a traffic light.

LADIES: A guy has tried to "pick you up" at the bus stop, ON the bus or the RT train, at Kennedy Station, Scarborough Town Centre or even while you're
in your car stopped at a traffic light.

GUYS: You have, or you know of a guy who has tried to pick up girls at the bus stop, on the bus or the RT train, at Kennedy Station, Scarborough Town Center or even while a girl is in her car stopped at a traffic light.

You often refer to SCARBOROUGH as SCARBERIA; SCARLEM; SCOMPTON; SCARCITY. and if you wanna be crude...new ones include: SCARLANKA, SCARBLACKISTAN, SCARBADOS)

No one speaks English on the bus.

You consider anything north of Steeles Avenue as "BUSH".

You consider anything east of the Rouge River as "BUSH".

You've learned how annyoing police helicopters are, even though they're there to help you.

You don't mess with kids who go to Lam, Leacock, Eaton, Bethune or Porter.

You're probably been covered in the Scarborough Mirror for something.

You love to mention other parts of Toronto (i.e. Jane-Finch, Regent Park, Flemingdon Park, Parkdale, Rexdale, Weston, St. Jamestown, etc.) and talk about how they have a higher crime rate than SCARBOROUGH.

You are familiar with these streets: Vic Park, Markham Road, Kingston Road, McCowan Road, Warden Avenue, Finch Ave, Kennedy Road, Eglinton Ave.

There is an Ontario Housing complex in your neighborhood.

There is a Chinese restaurant or a Roti shop in your neighbourhood.

Scarborough Town Centre was "the place" to hang-out when your were a teenager.

You hate it when NON-Scarborough people refer to it as the ghetto.

You know the Scarborough Bluffs are there, but never bothered to go see it.

You sadly realize our proudest accomplishment besides supplying 50% of the T Dot's crime rate, is the Barenaked Ladies.

North York pisses you off.

NON-MALVERN PEOPLE: You refer to Malvern as the East Scarlem ghetto.

MALVERN PEOPLE: You are PROUD of Malvern but still refer to it as the East Scarlem ghetto.

Your bike has been stolen at least once.

Your car has been stolen at least once, or you know someone who's car has been stolen.

You refer to Agincourt as "Asian-court"

There are more Guyanese people here than in Georgetown, Guyana.

You are able to distinguish the ethnicity of a driver just by looking
at his/her car (i.e. If you see a car with Hello Kitty or other stuffed
animals in it, then you know its probably someone of Hong Kong descent OR if you see a car with tinted windows, gold or chrome fender trims, and a crown air-freshener, then you know its probably someone from the Caribbean)
and you sure as hell know that when you see a "sooped" up 1993 honda civic hatchback there is either an italian or a greek GINO drivin!

You HATE Mel Lastman because you think he ignores Scarborough, BUT you still voted for him.

Even though you only live about 15 KM from Downtown Toronto, it still takes you an hour or more by TTC and at least a half hour by car to get there. Not to mention rush hour.

People involuntarily back away when you say you're from SCARBOROUGH.

The TTC buses run EXTRA SLOW here.

You're proud that Scarborough is more diverse than most small
countries.

You say you're a PROUD CITIZEN OF SCARBOROUGH, but deep down inside you kinda wish to move out to Markham, Richmond Hill or Pickering.

hehehehe. that was funny jeremy. I used to date a girl in scarbieria and didnt like going to pick her up in my old lexus. I almost got jumped by a couple black guys @ the stop light. Mother F*ckers tried to jack my ride ........and i was driving a 2000 Lexus GS 400. damn basterds. Thank god the car was fast and my doors were locked. Anyways that part of town is pretty rough and polluted. Both with gang-bangers, and garbage (people and waste)

Yup, every type of crime has been committed at least once in a 1 km radius of my place. I just keep thinking its better than it really is but I've learned if you keep your head ducked below 5 feet you most likely won't get hit by a stray bullet hehe
