38 Problems Only People From Hawaii Will Understand

August 21, 2013

Rice Fest countdown = 11 days! 8)

Sorry peeps, no “Where In Hawaii” this week. I figgah I go try and mix things up a bit once in a while. 8)

So some of you may know about this funny piece called “38 Problems Only People From Hawaii Will Understand” that was recently posted on Buzzfeed by Community Contributor Matthew Dekneef. It has gone fairly viral and for good reason. Buggah is funny.

But for those who haven’t seen it yet (and even for those who have), I thought I’d try to see if we can add to the list in the comment area below. First da list…

  1. There are some days where it’s so cold you just have to put on a shirt. – It’s 70° degrees! I’m gonna get frostbite!!!”
  2. Always forgetting to use your kama`aina discount. – I mean, do places locals really go even take kama`aina discounts?
  3. You don’t know who your cousins are and who your actual cousins are. – Everyone’s your cousin! This, of course, includes all your aunties. Your bus driver. Your bank teller. Your next door neighbor’s neighbor’s neighbor. Everyone’s your aunty!
  4. That overwhelming urge to defend the miracle that is SPAM. – Blasphemy! Spam musubis are a religion.
  5. Giving/getting directions is always an adventure. – “Okay, you wanna go mauka, and when you get to the third mango tree make a left, you’ll see one waterfall on your right hand side, just keep going. When you get to the menehune at the U-turn, he’ll ask you three questions…”
  6. When shipping costs more than the total cost of the item you’re shipping.
  7. Baked vs. steamed (manapua). – You can’t make me decide.
  8. Shave ice vs. your indecisiveness. – SERIOUSLY YOU CAN’T MAKE ME DECIDE.
  9. If it doesn’t have rice, then it’s not a real meal. – These are the rules.
  10. When you haven’t been to the beach since yesterday…
  11. …and then can’t decide which beach to go to. – Okay, fine, take it back… we got 99 problems and a beach ain’t one.
  12. That said, it is kind of hard to enjoy all of Hawaii’s natural breathtaking beauty… – …when you’re trapped in (traffic) all day. Because Honolulu has the second worst traffic in the country, just after L.A. The average driver here wastes 50 hours in gridlock a year. That’s over a week’s worth of surfing.
  13. Not to mention gas already costs an arm and a leg and your first-born keiki.
  14. When you can enter to win a free, 7-day, all expenses paid, VIP, luxury vacation for two to……………………………………………………………..Hawaii.
  15. It can be off the air everywhere else, but here every week is “Shark Week”.
  16. When you have to call Leavitt, Yamane & Soldner for something…
  17. There’s no civilized way to eat a malasada… …or a coco puff. – Don’t even try. It’s physically and emotionally impossible!
  18. Anyone dressed in head-to-toe Jeans Warehouse. – This isn’t just a problem. It’s a fashion emergency!
  19. The name of this product: BotoLift. – So, wait, wait, wait, wait… You put this where?!?!
  20. When one of these melts in your pocket (white rabbit candy).
  21. That one Nicki Minaj verse. Because you can’t be “in the islands of Waikiki,” Nicki.
  22. Your throat will start tightening up and you’ll begin salivating in 3, 2, 1… (lihing mui)
  23. These stairs are safe, right? (stairway to heaven)
  24. That Google Maps doesn’t have an “Avoid Potholes” option. – Because sometimes there’s a road in our potholes.
  25. Your favorite band will NEVER tour here. Ever. – Just accept it.
  26. When Obama won the presidency, you had to force yourself to be happy for someone from Punahou for the first time ever. – It was a struggle.
  27. You’re not sure who to trust: Dan Cooke or Guy Hagi? – Not that it really matters… It’s not like the weather ever really changes anyway.
  28. This thing called “Hawaiian” pizza. – Are we still calling it that? Okay, just checking…
  29. You’ve gotten into serious debates over which Zippy’s is the best Zippy’s. – Foolproof BFF Test: If they don’t know your Zippy’s order by heart, then they are NOT your BFF. No exceptions!
  30. Your legit ID always gets a harder look on the mainland. – Mahalo, “Superbad”.
  31. This question on Yahoo! Answers (Do they have Internet in Hawaii?). And let’s not forget the classics like, “Do you still live in grass shacks?” and “What about electricity?” FUN FACT: ‘Iolani Palace had electricity and telephones before the White House did! Also, yes, you can use U.S. currency here, and no, you don’t need your U.S. passport and power adaptors when you visit.
  32. When someone uses “Hawaiian” the same way they’d use “Californian” or “New Yorker”. – Yeah, that’s not going to work… BECAUSE HAWAIIAN IS A RACE.
  33. When someone corrects the way you pronounce “karaoke” and “karate”. – Sigh, we’re just saying it right.
  34. Or you’re told you pronounce “Hawai`i” funny. – Again, not “funny,” just right. We live here. WE WOULD KNOW.
  35. But wait, honestly, though – do we really have an accent? – Apparently we do say some words like “button” and “candy” kind of weird or something?
  36. Even though they don’t have laces, leaving anybody’s house is going to take an extra minute. – And for the last time…
  37. THEY’RE CALLED SLIPPERS.
  38. However, the biggest problem is taking it all for granted because… Lucky We Live Hawaii! Chee hoo!

Got any to add? Post it in the comment area below. Here’s mine to start:

* Your idea of an Aloha shirt is much different than mine!

The idea is to write a message from your current self to your 16 year old self, based on the life lessons and experiences you’ve gained over the years. Fun right?

So in the comment area below, go ahead, post a message to your 16 year old (bad) self! I’m sure he or she could learn a few things! 😉

Movies In My Pants (#moviesinmypants)

November 1, 2010

Happy November 1st y’all! I hope you’re all recovered from a lonnnng weekend of Halloween partying. *grin*

So the other day on Twitter, the hilarious #moviesinmypants hashtag picked up a lot of steam. It’s a funny game that cracked me up and made me think about you guys. The idea is to think of a movie name and fill in the blank for the following statement:

__________ In My Pants

The more creative you get with the movie titles, the more we’ll crack each other up. Yes it’s juvenile… but what the hey, it’s a good way to help each other get through this Monday together right? LOL!

So in the comment area below, post your favorite movie in your pants! Hurr’s an example: “40 Year Old Virgin In My Pants”… Ahahaha! Get um?

Fun Day Monday: You Know You’re NOT Local If…

April 26, 2010

A little over a year ago, we had an active discussion about how you can tell if someone is “local” or not. In fact, I believe it was the first time we hit triple digits (in comments) up in this heezy. In case you missed it, chicky chicky check it: You Know You’re Local If…

There were several moments this weekend when I saw peeps acting supah “non-local” and it made me want us to chat up about it this week. So let’s see what our WWE `Ohana can come up with ah?

You Know You’re NOT Local If…
(Need help? Click here or here.)

I’ll start:
* You wear matching aloha wear from head to toe (and think it looks cool).

Fun Day Monday: Wrong E-mail Address

March 29, 2010

Sorry gangy, still in vacation mode and will probably have CHOKE stuffs to catch up on today, so I’m posting a “funny” today – for Fun Day Monday – that I got via email. Hope you enjoy!

A lesson to be learned from typing the wrong E-mail address:

A Minneapolis couple decided to go to Florida to thaw out during a particularly icy winter. They planned to stay at the same hotel where they spent their honeymoon 20 years before.

Because of their hectic schedules, it was difficult to coordinate their travel schedules. So, the husband left Minneapolis and flew to Florida on Friday, and his wife was flying down the following day.

The husband checked into the hotel, and unlike years ago, there was a computer in his room, and he decided to send an email to his wife. However, he accidentally left out one letter in her E-mail address, and without noticing his error, sent the email to the wrong address.

Meanwhile … Somewhere in Houston …. A widow had just returned home from her husband’s funeral. He was a minister who was called home to glory after suffering a heart attack.

The widow decided to check her E-mail, expecting messages from relatives and friends….. After reading the first message, she screamed and then fainted. The widow’s son rushed into the room, found his mother on the floor, and then glanced up and saw the computer screen which read:

To: My Loving Wife
Date: Friday, October 13, 2005
Subject: I have arrived!

Dearest Love:

I know you are surprised to hear from me. They have computers here now, and you are allowed to send E-mail to your loved ones. I have just arrived and have been checked in. I see that everything has been prepared for your arrival tomorrow, and look forward to seeing you then. Hope your journey is as uneventful as mine was.

PS . It sure is freakin’ hot down here.

Pretty funny yeah? The ironic thing was that I had no idea who the sender of this joke was, so they actually had the wrong email address for me as well. Well, either that or it was some elaborate, new spamming method that I don’t know about. LOL!

Anyway, a big mahalo to da 11 guest bloggers (click here if ya missed it!) and to the rest of y’all for keepin’ thangs rollin’ while I was MIA. Hope everyone had fun!

Have a great week gang! 🙂
