16 Signs You're From A Forgotten County
There are other counties besides Cornwall, Yorkshire, and Essex, but no one can remember what they are.
When you tell people where you're from, they never know where it actually is.
As a result, you've developed a shorthand to explain the exact location.
Basically, if someone isn't from a neighbouring county, you know they're going to have no idea what you're talking about.
There might be a flag of the county, but you probably couldn't recognise it if there was.
You don't even get cool, unique foods, like Yorkshire puddings or Cornish pasties.
You have to make do with something really minor, like a sauce or a mildly altered meat.
When you lived somewhere else for the first time, you suddenly discovered that your "iconic" locations were actually completely unknown.
And even the ones that are well known are assumed to be somewhere else.
Though sometimes you're not sure which county they actually are in.
People have a habit of adding and removing the word "shire" erroneously.
If you meet someone else from there, you're immediately curious as to exactly where in the county they're from.
No one really knows what towns are in your county.
You don't get to have an iconic celebrity.
No one can even insult you with lazy stereotypes because THERE AREN'T ANY.
Though it does mean that people are always pleasantly surprised by how nice it is when they actually see it.
BuzzFeed has never posted about your county.
