    A few more from a friend

    You know that "Driftwood" isnt only at the beach.

    You know a chick who owns a mobile home in Hubert

    You avoid shopping on payday.

    You know there are more azzhole drivers per square mile than in any other city in the US. (or more specifically, younger, stupid drivers).

    You wonder who was the idiot that put that fly-speck of an airport so far away from the base? It was probably a great uncle of a taxi driver.

    When you call Onslow Beach a vacation get away.

    You know where the Brown Bagger use to be on Lejeune Blvd.

    You know why the trees line the median on Lejeune Blvd.

    You can tell the time of day by the traffic between MCB and Piney Green

    You know of or have dated a striper from one of the many clubs

    You can no longer count all the tatoo parlors that there are

    You don't need a map to get from the J-ville Mall to the nearest ABC Store

    You know that the Party Zone isn't at a friend's house

    You throw a Hurricane party for a tropical storm

    Everything closes with just 1/4 inch of snow on the ground

    You know the quickest way to the strip joints but can't find the J-ville hospital

    Your best friend is the taxi driver who charges you less for continuosly using thier services

    The only time you need a patrolamn is when you don't need one
