Daniel Onn, Jarid S. Johnson, Jeff Wheeler and 12 others like this.

Anya Iyengar It's a So Cal. thing. They argue the opposite.
Ted Kopulos NO!!! That's a bizarre Southern California affectation. Do NOT spread it around up here.
Sandy Sherman Yeah what's that about? there is no the!!
Ted Kopulos Yeah, drive down "THE" 405, not to be confused with "A" 405 ... sheesh.
