12. Trying ALL OF THE THINGS at the State Fair
Fried butter. Fried cheesecake. Fried beer. Fried jambalaya. Fried corn dogs. The list goes on, and on, and on y’all. It all sounds delicious. How are you ever supposed to choose?! So, you make it your mission to try all of the fried things.
11. Having To Pick Between Patio Happy Hour or The Gym
We all know Texas has amazing patio weather. It’s one of the reasons we’re blessed to live in this great country. You know you should go for a run. But your buddy just called and wants to grab margaritas. The inner-struggle is real, y’all. But…maybe not that real. Margaritas win any day!
10. Traffic. All. The Time
The only problem with living in the greatest country on earth, is dealing with all the foreigners who want to move here. Cities like Austin, Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio already had the WORST TRAFFIC on earth. But, now we’ve got all these transplants here crowding up our already jammed roads and making anytime between 7am-9am and 3:30pm-7:30pm the worst thing. Ever.
9. Summer Seatbelt Burns
You’re definitely Texan if you’ve gotten one of these before. Not much more explanation needed here.
8. Keeping Your Ego in Check When You’re Blessed to Be Born Texan
We know we’re blessed to be living in this great place called Texas. We’ve got everything a person could ever need: great folks, beautiful places, cold beer, old honky-tonks, good music, delicious food, and the 14th largest economy in the world. The list goes on and on. Why the heck would anyone ever want to live anywhere else, and we know it.
7. Attempting Not to Judge People for Saying “You Guys”
Texans aren’t really the judging type, but when someone comes up to us and says “you guys”, we come real close. I mean seriously. Why would you say “you guys” when y’all is a) is easier and b) sounds cooler. We’re all about efficiency and style in Texas.
