Is taking pride in your area code a bay-area only thing?

I've heard it mentioned here, but I don't think it's a big thing.

A bunch of the hardcore scene that goes to shows in Albany represent the 518. I think it's something that people do everywhere.

No. It's all over. You'd know that if you got out more, tricsy pop.

818 - AND WHAT, FOOLS?!

Ps. I like how you listed all the area codes from places no one really gives a crap about. I mean come on.. Those guys HAVE to use their area codes because.. well.. "Walnut Creek" (and the like) just doesn't sound very badass at all.

I didn't think so, until I read greeny's post.

Shut up!

hahahahaha!!

"I'm representing Sunnyvale and the tri-county area, bitches!" Or "Hell yeah, Pleasant Hill! We've got a BevMo!"

You don't know anything about my area, so again:


Shut thee up!

Hey, I'm saying it's cute!! And certainly justifiable!

Who the hell uses their area code for anything other than addressing mail?

That's just incredibly odd

I also use area codes when I make a phone call. But that's the crazy motherf*cker that I am.

it's all about the 6-1-7, nukka!!
5 yrs ago - Tuesday 10/13/09 - 1:59:20 PM EST (GMT-5)
I would assume the distinction only really makes sense in larger cities where enough people from different area codes would actually run into each other.

But anyways, I was born 315, moved to 716, which was changed to 585, then went back to 315 for school and am now in 607 for grad school.

But am I technically a 607 if my phone is still 585?

Damn, why was I reading this entire thread as talking about zipcodes?

Facebook group "I'm from the 703 which means I'm kind of a big deal"

That's my area code.

That's the only example I can think of. I've never heard of that happening anywhere else; certainly not anywhere near where I live, and I live in a fairly big place.

Using phone area codes seems even more strange.

You wouldn't get very many area codes out of the area around me.
"970 pwns all!"
"Wait! You're 970? I'm 970 too!"

So true. People from Walnut Creek (ahem ) never say that. They always go 925, or the Dub C.

But others do it too.

YEAH, THE 925. WOOO.
