People born and raised in New England
Straight forward, no bullshit, working class, often have distinct accents.
Don't feel the need to be all hug-y and flaky like Californians when they meet people. Will give you a hard time, but only if they like you.
Often found in Diners and eateries named after the same person who's going to serve you wieners and coffee milk when you walk in the door. (ie- Sally's, Barbara's...)
Considered rude by the rest of the country, but only because they're pansies and can't handle honesty.
Person 1- Yeah I just moved to Rhode Island, and my neighbor hasn't said hi or waved or anything yet... but the other day when we got snowed in he came over and shoveled me out!
Person 2- What a true New Englandah.
Person 1- I'm visiting here and I don't think any of the natives like me!!
Person 2- We're New Englanders, dear. Stop being so sensitive.
