But We're Special

One of my pet peeves is places where the people who live there fancy themselves to be so special/different by the virtue of their location that the rules that apply to them/their particular needs are just somehow different than for the rest of the universe. That isn't to deny that varied local culture/norms exist at all, but I've lived in a lot of places and quite often the things that people imagine make them unique/special/different are really pretty standard stuff.
