The one that really surprised me was East Side Mario's (boom bada boom bada bing).

My current favourite hamburger place is A&W but I guess it's going to be Harvey's for me for awhile!

Come to think of it I don't know that we've ever had a Mormon come to the door. Definitely get Jehovah Witnesses - although even with that it's not the way it once was. You could almost count on it...

Can't speak for New Jersey but we still have a few places where you don't pump your own gas and it never occurred to me to tip anyone! Now I'm wondering if I should have :eek:.

Someone who lives in a different city from you is not wrong if they refer to the "South Shore" as being an area near them. Lots of places have a "South Shore" not just Montreal :rolleyes:.
