I've often heard it said here that Irish people have a special bond with Boston. Well, here's a large part of that Boston experience that I'm not sure Irish people know about, but I suspect many can relate to.

I always remember my first day at my first 'real' job. A guy from Boston was starting the same day. When our new boss asked us about ourselves he had this to say to my co-worker about growing up in Boston
That's good. You learn how to handle disappointment from a young age.
It's that New York attitude that Bostonians HATE.
