Stuff People in the Hamptons Say

What do you hear Hamptons residents and visitors say all the time?

You may be familiar with the new Internet meme "S--- Girls Say," which has inspired countless parodies, such as "S--- New Yorkers Say" and "S--- Hipsters Say."

The Hamptons Patches — East Hampton, Southampton and Westhampton-Hampton Bays — thought it would be fun to get suggestions for one of our own:  "Stuff People in the Hamptons Say."

We want to hear your suggestions for our list of what stereotypical Hamptons locals, seasonal residents and visitors always say.

Here are some initial ideas to get the ball rolling. Add yours to the comments section below.

• Why can't these locals grocery shop on weekdays?
• I hate Montauk Highway.
• I won't cross the stretch (Napeague Stretch).
• It's me or the deer.
• I want a Trader Joe's out here.
• I don't go west of the canal unless ...
• I'm going UpIsland.
• This place is expensive.
• They're closed in the off-season.
• Oh, there's Christie Brinkley.
• Take Scuttle Hole; it's faster.
• Sag Harbor is, like, the UnHampton.
• Montauk is, like, the UnHampton.

After 21 years here from up Island, guess I am a local and LOVE it. City folks always welcome, but slow your pace and driving and enjoy the beauty of the land and waterways..... Thanks..

I have traveled....(around the world,etc) and East Hampton still has the best beaches and and most beautiful light of any place in the world.

I was once standing on a corner near Two holes of Water Road and a woman pulled over and asked which way is the Whitestone Bridge, or another time in East Hampton on Ocean Road some guy asked me which way is the highway. I told him that was Montauk Hwy way right there, he said no i just took that road it took me 2 hours to get here, which way is THE highway?

I like the citidiots that sit in their car, blow the horn and wave for YOU to come over and give THEM directions.
Sarah Malone January 21, 2012 at 07:36 PM

No, where do you really live?
Montaukman January 21, 2012 at 07:51 PM
Why so expensive? I could get a guy from the railroad station to do it for half that.
luann January 22, 2012 at 04:30 AM
Is it south of the highway ?
Ralebird January 22, 2012 at 05:39 AM
Q: Have you lived out here your whole life? A: Not yet.

What my dad always use to say... 'Sometimes I want to blow up the bridge over the Shinecock Canal.'
Allen Schneider January 23, 2012 at 02:16 PM
Citidiots will run 5 miles every morning yet they won't walk an extra 50 feet to park in a regular space!

Amagansett has a new 12 step program....from the Tavern to the Talkhouse.

Being a Hamptonite now for over 10 years, a few things I constantly say, ask and hear are: -"Is it south of the highway?" -"There's Alec Baldwin" -"mid island sucks" -"the tennis court is behind the pool, duh" -"Montauk is too far" -"take L.I.E. not 27" -"Sag Harbor is more like Fag Harbor" -"goin' to Two Mile Swallow Beach w/ the boys" -"$40 for a lobster roll?" -"I'm a real estate broker" -"I'm an interior designer" -"Can you recommend a cleaning lady?"

You know the economy is in trouble when you see old W.A.S.P.'s playing Lotto

"i wish those Latino's would just go back where they came from, we didn't have any of these problems before "THEY" came here!" "BTW. Do you like my new patio/garden area? Doesn't it look amazing? The best part about it is I paid half of what I would have if I had to pay those other guys. Yup! Jose and Julio did a fantastic job!"
Melissa Gibbons February 21, 2012 at 12:57 AM
Hahaaa having a good laugh at all of this! I absolutely LOVE when I see a decked out bub truck, blowin smoke, making a crap full of noise, metal music blastin, peeling around corners.....and the looks on the summer people's faces in their shiny gay luxury mobiles.

Melissa, want to help us with our video?
Melissa Gibbons February 21, 2012 at 01:11 AM
What video do you speak of? I'd love to help. I've actually always had an idea for a local show since I was a kid related to this topic, funny material!
