10 Things No Self-Respecting Montanan Would Ever Do
Montanans tend to have a “live and let live” philosophy that most people find very refreshing. Between our sparsely populated towns and overwhelming state pride, you won’t find a better group of people, each with their own unique personalities and interests. Still, there are a few things you’re not likely to catch any of us doing.
Here are a few things self-respecting Montanans don’t do:
1. Let a little snow slow them down.
Most of us learned how to drive in the snow when we were 16. If we have somewhere to be, we’ll get there.
2. Remain seated for the Star-Spangled Banner.
We may complain about the government, but we LOVE our country.
3. Drive below the speed limit (in ideal weather conditions).
The speed limit is just a suggestion… right?
4. Brag about how amazing Montana is to outsiders.
We’d rather keep that information to ourselves, because we’d rather have Montana to ourselves.
5. Let snow go unshoveled.
It doesn’t matter if it’s Christmas Eve and we’ve already had four glasses of eggnog. We know that if we don’t get out and shovel the driveway, we’ll regret it.
6. Disrespect Montana.
We know how lucky we are to live in the Treasure State, and we don’t react well when we hear others speaking poorly about it.
7. Go vegan.
There are always exceptions, of course, but for the most part, we love our meat and we’re not about to give it up.
8. Leave the gate open.
It doesn’t matter what gate it is or if there is an animal (or human) behind it. We always close the gate.
9. Ignore someone who clearly needs help.
True Montanans are kind and generous by nature.
10. Take Montana for granted.
We know a good thing when we see it. That’s why we get outdoors whenever we can and never miss a sunset if we can help it.
Isn’t Montana amazing? We happen to believe that it’s
the best state of all.
