27. We noticed this when we drove from Boston to the tip of Cape Cod

All the exits had completely new numbers. Luckily, on the Cape, the new exit numbers were accompanied by small signs saying „old exit 7,“ etc. To those who have lived here all their lives, it was a disaster. We knew where we were only because we knew the towns by heart after coming here nearly 40 years in a row. This was important, as my wife had to go to Cape Cod Hospital for an emergency last Friday, and I knew it was in Hyannis off of exit 7, not exit 72. The opinions of the people who live here don‘t matter, of course, but they hate it. An old Massachusetts tradition dating back to 1620, if I remember correctly.
