8 Awkward Moments Every Delawarean Has Endured At Least Once
Everyone in every state experiences awkwardness from time to time, but we all get through it. In Delaware, there are a few moments that everyone experiences that make you stop and pause – but don’t feel bad about it. I’ve come to realize that these awkward Delaware moments affect everyone.
1. Answering "Dela-where?!"
Seriously, nobody paid attention in their grade school geography classes, and that's a shame. As soon as you tell someone you're from Delaware, you'll hear "Where?" "Is that even a state?" "I thought that was part of Pennsylvania" and more.
2. Getting Excited About License Plates
If you are in the car with an out of stater and you pass a low number, they might not understand your reaction. But thats okay, because you saw a low number!!!
3. Explaining Scrapple
This one's tough. Either tell your friends to just eat it, or try to explain what it is, and then have to explain why you love it so much.
4. Thinking You Saw Joe Biden
I swear I saw him at CalTor in Newark once!
5. Blowing Through An EZ Pass Lane
Everyone has done it - whether youre in a new car, or a borrowed car, or just feeling absent-minded. At least you didnt have to wait in line.
6. Shouting "I GOT CRABS!"
Well, what else are you gonna yell when you walk in the door after you grabbed a bunch of fresh steamed pinchers?
7. Running Into Everyone From Your Hometown
When people ask if you know "so and so from Seaford" and you laugh... and then you stop laughing because yes, yes you do.
8. Forgetting Sales Tax Is A Thing
Man, other states make you do math while you shop? That's just not fair.
Now, awkward moments can only really occur if you’re surrounded by people, so if you feel like you need to escape from the crowds for a bit, you should head out to
