Let Me Guess, You’re Not From Montana? Well It’s Very Obvious.
Ok, so this could be true for the midwest in general, but I feel like these are tell-tale clues that you are DEFINITELY NOT from Montana. I had someone come up to me at a local store here in Bozeman and ask me a question and I just kind of looked at them like "Ummm what?". I felt a bit terrible for the dead stare of confusion until I finally realized what they were looking for.
Let's dive right in.
How I know you are not from here:
Number 1: "Do you know where I can find the buggies?" I am not ashamed to say at first all I could think of was "like a horse and buggy?". Then I realized they were looking for the shopping carts. I forget that there are people who actually call "carts", "buggies". I just don't hear it from people that have been here for more than a hot minute.
Number 2: "Does everyone here have a dog?". Well, almost! Bozeman especially is a dog lover's dream place to live. We love dogs here and we are not afraid to bring them with us almost everywhere we go.
Number 3: "I just love how "country" and "small-town" Bozeman is". I can't help but think, "you should have seen it when it WAS country and small-town".
Number 4: "It's only like $1700 for a one-bed apartment here, that's like the same as at home." This just tells me that you are from a place where electric car charging stations are on every corner.
Number 5: "It's crazy that so many people have trucks here." I just wanted to say, "it's hard to fit fishing poles, camping gear, a dog kennel, and my friends all in a Prius."
I know there are so many more ridiculous things said that, very clearly, point out the fact that someone may not be from here, but these were my personal favorites I have encountered. Hope you enjoyed it!
