So I guess I would fit the perfect Main Line stereotype:
*Never been on a commercial airplane
*Never had to clean my room
*Goes to a local private school
*Dates a guy at another private school
*Is afraid of public schools (we've heard people bring guns and sell drugs there)
*Vacations to Nantucket,MA; Palm Beach, FL; Avalon, NJ; Barbados, Carribean.
*Owns 3 houses
*Belongs to Marion Cricket
*Is a legacy of an Ivy League College
*Is a prep
*Owns designer cloths
But, I have met so many more people who do NOT have the above. Unlike what other people have said, we are not self-centered bitches. We are people who actually donate millions of dollars a year to foundations and we do a lot of volunteer work. We want to HELP our community, not OWN our community. The Main Line is just where we live because there are people who are also Upper Class here. We only go to Private Schools to maximize our education, not because we are overly privileged. Despite what people say, I do not know ANYONE who lives a "perfect" life. I do not know ANYONE who is happy with their life. We do not get everything we want and we are not selfish or self-centered. WE CARE!
Baldwin Girl: Hey, whats up?
Agnes Irwin Girl: Nothing much, I just got back from volunteering at the Ronald McDonald House. I just cashed in the Read for Ronald Check, it was over $10,000: A new school record. How about you?
Baldwin Girl: No way! I'm going there next week to give them a check our school raised. I was cleaning up trash from the roadsides.
Note: Both Baldwin & AIS are schools on the Main Line
I live on the Main Line.
I'm not Jewish, I was raised a Christian with strong family values and high morals.
I am a REPUBLICAN.
My house has 2 bathrooms and 2 bedrooms, on 1.5 acres - certainly not a "sprawling estate."
We do not own a shore home or vacation home, nor do we own a boat or any other sort of recreational vehicle.
We do not own a BMW, Jaguar, Mercedes, or any other high-class automobile; in fact, all of our cars are American.
I didnt get a car for my 16th birthday - I saved up money and bought one for myself once I turned 18.
I do not wear multiple, layered polo shirts and I certainly don't pop the collar of the one I do wear.
Wawa is the greatest convinience store franchise on planet Earth.
Yes, I have an iPod (which I got for free with a little HARD WORK and DILIGENCE from freeipods.com) because I enjoy listening to a lot of @#$@# music.. is there a problem with that?
I've volunteered at the Salvation Army on Thanksgiving, so I guess I do care about more than myself.
I was educated by one of the best public school systems in the country.
Judging by most of the spelling errors I've seen so far on this site, most of you Main Line haters would have difficulty recognizing the correlation between hard work, a quality education, and the privelege of enjoying the finer things in life such as driving a German automobile and living in such a beautiful and well-respected areas such as the Main Line.
i live in the main line area, and ever since i was born. i used to like it until the cliques and annoying bitches surrounded me. i used to be a loser, but then i became popular and saw the ugly side. people make fun of you, talk shit about you, and ruin you. if you dont date a pop, you are mind fucked. basically, all of your "friends" talk shiiiiiittt about you iff your popular. if you were a loser like me, everything was great and you should stay with that title, but being popular on the main line sucks ass. i hate people and i hate my friends, geeks rule, pops suck.
i am popular and i live on the main line, brb gonna shoot myself!
Ok, so everyone wants to talk shit about Main Line.... let them! Yeah I have the latest ipod, Yeah I have like 500 pairs of shocks from Nikeid.com, Yeah I post only shop on the second floor in neimans, yeah I have my hair done at Jay Micheals, Yeah I have the latest designer bag..... but you know what? I'm also the nicest person on earth! All those people who are envious go ahead.... we'll be waiting and ready to throw dior saddle bags at your head!
Those main liners are the shit.
okay, so contrary to popular belief, the mainline is NOT a place for rich douches to hang...there are some, and there used to be way more, but now most people are the people who came to work for the richies. there are like a couple ghettos, not a lot, but if you go anywhere into tredyffrin-easttown (valley forge, devon, berwyn, and paoli) then ur bound to get asked at least thirty+ times to buy drugs. good place to live, but is going somewhat downhill due to economy...everyone knows each other...
im one of them who's parents work for the richies of the main line.
A place outside of philly full of rich people where the only thing to do is buy stuff or do drugs.
"yo where are we?" "Were in the main line!!!" "Whats there to do here?" "Oh I don't know lets go to the mall or buy weed!?!?!?!?"
Prison slang for the general not locked up population. Also line.
I've got three brothers in the can and three on the main line.
