(Reuters) - For Mike Monteiro, a transplanted Philadelphian who now lives in California, his T-shirt says it all.
When he moved to San Francisco a decade ago he realized he needed to explain his direct language to Californians who seemed to have a different approach to communication.
After an exchange with an official who accused him of being rude and angry when he was just trying to make a point, he designed a T-shirt, not to get his feelings off his chest, but on it.
"I'm not angry. I'm from Philly," it said.
