    Why does Howard say this in reference to standing in a line? So if you are in a line waiting to get on the Internet what would he say?

    "Since I'm a kid" is another term I hear Howard and a lot on the East Coast use but never heard it elsewhere.

    It's definitely a Jew York thing. Now with the internet online means something different and I suspect it will slowly fade away.

    It's a NY thing. I never knew it was wrong until I read a similar thread on SFN.

    I always say "queued up" because "standing in line" seems way too plebian
