"Visitors to Cincinnati are..." Cincinnati Local Custom Tip by pat110

Cincinnati Local Customs: 20 reviews and 16 photos

Visitors to Cincinnati are usually surprised by our reaction if we did not hear or understand something. Instead of common reactions such as 'I beg your pardon?' or 'Would you repeat that?', the usual response from a Cincinnatian is 'Please?' which means the same thing as I beg your pardon or would your repeat that? Most visitors wonder, 'PLEASE WHAT?'
