UT Posted in Utah November 30, 2015 by Catherine Rees 15 Things Some People From Utah Will Never, Ever Admit (Out Loud) Some Utahns don’t want to admit that they go against the grain. Others are hiding bigger secrets. Whether their sins or secrets, here are just a few things that some Utahns will never admit to anyone. 1. Some Utahns don’t like to ski. Flickr/Dave Herholz It’s cold. And the wind is blowing. And our knees hurt. Yes, we have the best snow on earth, but not everyone in Utah wants to enjoy it while on skis. 2. Some of us really do shop on Sunday. AmytheNurse/flickr Some Utahns try not to shop on Sunday for religious reasons. Sometimes, they do it anyway, but they don't admit it to their neighbors. 3. Some Utahns have never eaten green Jello. FraserElliot/flickr And really...is this a bad thing? 4. Not all Utahns love Disneyland. William Shewbridge/flickr Sure, it’s wholesome family entertainment, but some Utahns actually prefer to take their kids somewhere other than Anaheim on a family vacation. 5. Many Utahns are terrible drivers. Henry Faber/flickr Deep down inside, you might know that you’re really not a very good driver. You never use your turn signal, you drive 80 mph on the freeway when it’s snowing, you’re distracted by kids, pets and cell phones. Of course, you’ll never admit your bad driving habits out loud. 6. Many Utahns have undergone plastic surgery. Tom Merton/flickr Utah ranks as one of the highest states in the nation for plastic surgeries, but you won’t find most Utahns admitting that they’ve had a procedure. 7. Some Utahns don’t want to admit their Internet habits. Fabricio Zuardi/flickr A 2009 study found that Utah is ranked number one in the nation for porn subscriptions. Later studies place us much lower on the list. Regardless, most Utahns won’t fess up to surfing the Internet for anything other than wholesome entertainment. 8. Not every Utahn in the HOV lane is supposed to be there. Garrett/flickr Utahns don’t like to admit that they move over to the HOV lane because they’re in a hurry — even when they don’t have the required passenger with them. 9. Some Utahns don’t recognize each other at the casino in Wendover. loonyhiker/flickr You’ll never admit that you just saw that woman from church at the slot machines...and she won’t admit that she saw you at the blackjack table. 10. Not every dish at that Christmas potluck party is homemade. Christina Kennedy/flickr Some Utahns don’t want to admit that they bought that pie at Marie Callender’s and passed it off as their own. 11. Some Utahns really love Starbucks. Marco Paköeningrat/flickr Some Utahns prefer to say that they only support local coffee shops; others won’t admit to drinking coffee at all. Starbucks sure seems to sell a lot of lattes in Utah, though… 12. Not every Utah hunter really bagged a huge deer. Bryant Olsen/flickr You don’t want to be the guy that admits that he really goes hunting for the poker, beer and time away from his wife. 13. Not all Utahns love kids. My Camera and Me/flickr Our state is very kid-centric, but not all Utahns love being surrounded by so many tiny people. 14. Some Utahns don’t vote Republican. DonkeyHotey/flickr Our state might swing to the right, but not every voter here is a Republican. 15. Some Utahns don’t want to admit that their MLM venture is failing. Andy/flickr When you sign up for a big Utah MLM, you’re supposed to make a LOT of money. Some Utahns don’t want to admit that they’re really losing cash...not making it. ‘Fess up, fellow Utahns. What things do you hate to admit?
