    This Is For Everyone From Upstate New York

    You're not alone.

    by ,

    If you're from Upstate New York, then it's definitely happened to you. You're sitting there, minding your own business, when someone accuses you of being from Westchester or — worse — CANADA.

    Luckily, these people are here to help clear up some misconceptions:

    If you're from upstate, you've had to tell people you're not from Westchester.

    You've had to tell people, "Don't even bother trying to pronounce where I'm from."

    You've definitely told people about the glory of Wegmans and Stewart's.

    And most importantly, you've told people that you are A RED-BLOODED AMERICAN.

    IT'S NOT CANADA, DANGIT.
