Here in New Jersey, we have our own way of doing things. While it can be a lot for outsiders to handle, it's totally normal for us. In fact, we really wouldn't want to live any other way.

One thing that sets us aside from the rest of the country is our unique vocabulary. Our weird slang is definitely something to take pride in though.

Here are 5 terms that mean something different when you're from the Garden State:
