OR Posted in Oregon August 26, 2016 by Tessa Metcalf 9 Sure-Fire Ways To Make An Oregonian Mad Oregonians are a pretty friendly bunch overall, but there are some things that just push us over the edge. From littering to driving aggressively, here are 9 things NOT to do in Oregon: 9. Drive aggressively. flickr/ Lau Ardelean In Oregon, drivers are very aware of one another and respect the speed limit. Speeding, honking, and cutting people off for no good reason certainly won't make you any friends. 8. Assume everyone from Oregon lives in Portland. flickr/ sama093 It may be the largest city in Oregon, but there's much more to the Beaver State than Portland. 7. Litter. flickr/ Doug Geisler Seriously, don't. Just don't. 6. Complain about the rain. flickr/ Jeremy Piehler Sure, it rains a lot in Oregon, and especially Northwest Oregon; how else would it be so lush and green? Plus, a huge chunk of Oregon is desert, so there are plenty of places where it hardly rains at all. 5. Honk at bikers. flickr/ Todd Mecklem Oregonians are quite environmentally conscious overall, and many of us choose to commute on bike. Drivers should always keep an eye out for bikers and respectfully share the road. 4. Pronounce Oregon wrong. flickr/ Jim Hickcox It's Oregon, not Or-E-gone. 3. Be rude. flickr/ Dustin and Jennifer Stacey No one likes interacting with an unfriendly person, especially when you're typically surrounded by people who go out of their way to be nice. 2. Pump your own gas. flickr/ Sam Beebe Well, this one's more likely to provoke helpful intervention than outright scorn. But really, don't pump your own gas. You can get a fine of up to $500. 1. Toss recycling into the trash can. flickr/ Wolfram Burner We take recycling seriously, and we think you should too. The bins are labeled, after all.
