It is funny how we don't see how strange certain things are that are "normal" to us until we step back and see that maybe they are odd behaviors to others. It also is something to think about before we judge others-including our co-workers and clients. We are all different and that is a good thing! I thought this would be fun to post some Michigander traits that were actually mostly true from an email I received.
You might live in Michigan...if
People from the south ask you if you are from Canada, Minnesota or Wisconsin upon hearing you speak...hello! Forgetting about the coolest state ever!? Haha
Your local Dairy Queen is closed from November through March.
You offer someone in a store assistance and you don't even work there. Yes, I have done this several times and never realized it was odd...until now.
You have worn shorts and a coat at the same time. This is more of a guy thing...
Your town has an equal number of bars and churches. Not sure, but there are plenty of both!
You have had a lengthy telephone conversation with someone who dialed a wrong number. I have done this on several occasions as well.
You can drive 65 mph through 2 feet of snow during a raging blizzard, without flinching. Not safe, but yes..
You install security lights on your house and garage and leave both unlocked. Not me, but true for many...
Even the women carry jumper cables in their car and they know how to use them. All good Dads (and Moms) teach their daughters this!
You drink pop and bake with soda.
Your doctor tells you to drink Vernors and you know it's not medicine.
You can actually drink Vernors without coughing.
You know what a "Yooper" is.
You think owning a Honda is Un-American. Not true...I own a Honda. Please don't hurt me!
You measure distance in hours.
