I'm from Baltimore, and it irks me to no end when people try to claim it. I first encountered this phenomenon when I ventured away for college... All the way in college park. I couldn't go a day without meeting someone who said they were from Baltimore, and upon asking what high school they attended, come to find out it was perry hall or parkville! I would understand if we were in Atlanta or Phoenix, but its the same freaking state. I know where Towson, Catonsville, and ellicott city are, so don't say you're from bmore if you're not!
