Slang Only Michiganders Use
On vacation recently, we traveled to many parts of this great state; mainly in the mitten. What I began to notice is that those of us "trolls" under the bridge have a unique way of expressing ourselves that is usually credited to the "Yoopers".
So I started to keep track of some of the slang I heard and discovered I use and came up with my favorites. Are these any you've heard or maybe use?
- "Couple Two Three"- I heard this and realized I say the same thing in variations.
- "Un-Thaw"- Here's another one I use and realized the mistake.
- "Ja-Eat?"- We can't be bothered to ask: "Did you eat?"
- "Start With Me Last"- This is one I heard but don't say...I don't think.
-"Where-bouts"- Hey! Why waste syllables.
-"Stop n Go Lights"- This may just be generational but I head a teenager say it.
- "Meer"- Ya... Mirror.
- "Crans"- Ya...Crayons.
-"Michigan Left"- This one I heard for the first time. It's a U-turn. I always say U-ee.
