    What do you consider “essential equipment” for a native Columbus resident?

    A car.

    I have never heard anyone pronounce it that way ever.

    The regionalized pronunciation of Native American rivers/cities isn’t really an “item”, nor is it anything unique to Central Ohio.

    I remember the first time I took Anne to visit some of my family in Alabama, and I can’t recall how she said it, but she certainly didn’t pronounce the city of Sylacauga the way the locals do (SILL-AH-CAH-GA).

    Well not so much, but I have had to tell tourists on several occasions that they need to call the cab companies to get cabs in Columbus. You see them staring at traffic with a gaumless look now and then.

    Drive all the way around 270 until you can remember all of exits.

    For the most part, those are the major arteries of Columbus.

    Nothing is more anyone to me than a Columbus native that still can’t navigate their own city. It amazes me at the amount of people in Columbus that fall into that category.

    You know who you are ;)

    Wouldn’t hurt to study a map and memorize all of the suburbs / townships. (this could be said for any transplant to a new city though)

    You have to call Kroger, Krogers. A healthy disdain for the west side doesn’t hurt either.

    Also, be sure to place the word “ghetto” in front of Krogers whenever the opportunity arises.
