You know you´re from Vienna when...

Recently I found a group in facebook with the title above. As I´m very curious, I read the article and decided not to hold back this great stuff for non-facebook-users - those of you who are facebook-members can also read the text here. Enjoy!

- you pass underground stations which Otto Wagner has built

- you understand the guy in the Ubahn when he says "Zug fährt ab"

- you don't think it is strange when someone has never been to a district outside the Gürtel

- you can tell of people's dialects from which district they are

- you don't think it's strange when all the students knocking the old wooden tables at the end of each class at university

- you don't think it is strange drinking beer at flex with a business man next to a sandler

- at summertime you don't get stopped from dressed-up-like-Mozart people who want to sell you tickets to overprized bad tourist concerts because they know you would never attend a concert in summer
