I noticed that people from the San Francisco Bay Area, like San Jose or Oakland or Walnut Creek or Vallejo, almost never say they're from whatever city they're from. They're always like 'I'm from the Bay Area.' But people who are actually from San Francisco (which the Bay Area is named after) say 'I'm from San Francisco.' They don't really say 'I'm from the Bay Area.' Know what I mean? Does anyone notice this too? Why don't Bay Area people not from SF just say they're from San Jose or Oakland or whatever?

No one wants to identify themselves as coming from Oakland.3
