15 Things People From Texas Always Have To Explain To Out Of Towners

We get a lot of tourists here in Texas considering our state’s size and the large number of attractions we have. We also have quite a few traditions and values that these outsiders don’t understand since they didn’t grow up here. Out-of-towners stick out like a sore thumb because they’ll ask dumb questions like, “Can I have unsweet tea?” or use the dreaded phrase, “you guys.” If you’re unfortunate enough to encounter a tourist, you’ll probably have to explain these 15 things to them.
