Pam Newman:

  1. you know you’re a new yorker if you say “Waited on line,” rather than “Waited in line.”

That was very intentional. I’m from Ohio, and I grew up saying “in line”. But I deliberately say “on line” now (I have to slow down and think about it every time) because I live in New York.

It’s learning the local language.
