    You know you're from Miami when you travel to other cities and HIT the car in front of you when he doesn't take the yellow light...
    And then you get out of the car and yell at them in a Scarface accent to intimidate them.

    you can't help but bring up Hurricane Andrew to non-natives before, during and after every recent hurricane to let them know you've experienced "the Big One".

    "los viejitos" ask you where are you from and you say Miami and they say, no, where are you really from, so you have to tell them the country your parents are from, and from then on, they believe you were also born there.
