I was raised in NY just above NYC. When we wanted a bagel with some cream cheese, the correct way of asking for it, the Jewish way (many of our friends were, and still are, Jewish), was "Gimme an egg bagel mit a schmear".
Down south, we can't get a decent bagel let alone "mit a schmear".
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
