Boonies=Boondocks; the middle of nowhere. I keep forgetting people don’t use that often. Anyway, people acting superior, or least appear to be acting that way, is probably the root of some of it. People are like that everywhere.
I know that feeling! Cause here to describe dirty snow we call it “slosh” but the french don’t. it is pretty cool to have your own vocabulary!
yeah…..anyhow what is the stereotype of your state?
(Some) Michiganders have Midwestern accents, so we’re “easy to understand” when it comes to talking. We apparently have “good work ethic” but we’re also “surly” and “depressed” since we live in a state that “snows 9 months of the year”. We’re “dirt poor” and “blue collar”, but “ethnically diverse”. We also have a high rate of obesity, so we’re “all fat people”. We’re also a “dangerous” place because of the cities with high crime rate (Detriot formerly, but Saginaw and Flint are really bad for it.). But people find the state itself gorgeous when visiting.
So, the usual bullshit.
We’re also considered very “Canadian” for some reason. I’m guessing geography plays into that, but I’m not entirely sure why else that might be.
I am so sorry for taking so long ;n;
and wow you guy’s really don’t have it easy with the stereotypes huh?
what does being too Canadians even means?
Eh, there’s worse things. Some of it’s true, other’s are wide off the mark. It doesn’t even snow that much!
But oh, when it does…
I don’t get how we’re Canadian. I hope they mean it in a good way though.
yeah….it would be pretty insulting if they think of it as an insult.
at least they don’t think that you say “eh”at each end of sentences.
and you guy’s have snow?
Not year round, if that’s what you’re asking. But yes, we usually get a good snowfall. Not so much the last few years (global warming and all that shit) as compared to years before, but usually when it snows, we get it in heaps. Four wheel drive is so lovely.
