If you’ve lived in the Sooner State for any length of time, you’ve most likely got a list of things that drive you crazy. Of course we love our state, but we have our things we could do without. Here are 13 things that would be on most Oklahomans’ lists:
1. The bipolar weather.
It could be sunny and 70 degrees one day and 32 degrees and snowing by the next morning. You never know what you're going to get with Oklahoma weather.
2. Budget cuts.
Oklahomans are experiencing the effects of all the recent budget cuts, but we especially hate the budget cuts in education.
3. Mosquito and chigger bites.
They can make an enjoyable evening turn into a miserable evening.
4. Texas Longhorns
Every Oklahoman knows no matter who you root for, you NEVER root for Texas!
5. Tornadoes a.k.a. "Naders"
We might joke about them, but we really do fear them.
6. The humidity.
Our humid summers feel like we're operating on only 15% air. When summer hits, it hits hard.
From car damage to pure annoyance, our roads need some help.
8. Liquor laws.
Buy your beer by Saturday night at 9 p.m. or you'll be out of luck till Monday morning...or stuck with low point beer from the grocery store.
We aren't all overall wearing, cowboy hat lovin' folks.
I thought the toll roads were supposed to eventually pay themselves off? Can you believe it costs $8 round trip to drive from Tulsa to Oklahoma City?
11. Road construction.
It never seems to end!
12. Church traffic.
Since there is a church on every corner in Oklahoma, navigating the cities around church traffic on Sundays can be annoying. We even have police directing traffic outside many churches.
13. Rude people.
Oklahomans are kind people so when rude people come across our path, we can't stand it!
