Here Are 11 Things You Will Never Catch Anyone From Arizona Doing
Arizona is a pretty unique place and, for the most part, we’re pretty relaxed people. But there are some things we’re adamant about not doing. Ever. Here are some things you probably won’t find an Arizonan doing:
1. Cheering for the Lakers.
How dare you!
2. Wishing for less rain.
Remember that little kid song asking the rain to go away? I never understood that even as a kid.
3. Wishing for warmer weather.
Nope. Northern Arizona's temperatures are just fine (most of the year) and the southern portion of the state could use cooler temperatures.
4. Worrying about Daylight Saving Time.
Unless you happen to live in the Navajo Nation, chances are the time change doesn't even phase you.
5. Relinquish their gun rights.
6. Not take a moment to appreciate the beauty surrounding us.
If you haven't done that yet today, do it!
7. Go out for a hike—even a short day hike in spring—underprepared.
Arizonans know the dangers of dehydration and heat exhaustion. Usually it's the tourists and transplants who learn this the hard way.
8. Willingly drive through a flash flood.
Actually, I really hope it's just the visitors who do this. If you're a native Arizonan and do this, you should be ashamed because you know better.
9. Swim in the canals.
Living next to a canal while growing up, this was ingrained into the kids every year.
10. Slide down this in the middle of July.
No, thanks. I like not being burnt.
11. Leave and never return.
If we ever decide to leave, it's inevitable that we will come back one day.
How many of these were you able to relate to? What else would you add to this list?
