20 Surefire Ways To Always Spot A Tourist In Texas
Being from Texas is like being part of a club – we can spot fellow members a mile away, and outsiders stick out like a sore thumb. They might not be wearing Hawaiian shirts and sporting binoculars around their neck, but we still know when someone doesn’t quite fit in with the rest of us. From asking whether we really get around on horseback to saying “you guys” instead of “y’all,” here are 20 ways you can be sure someone is a tourist in the Lone Star State.
Katie Lawrence is a Southeast Texas native who graduated 18th in her high school class with a GPA of 4.25. She attended college in the Houston area and changed her major twice (psychology, computer science, and finally criminal justice) before taking a leap of faith and dropping out to pursue a career in freelance writing.
Today, Katie writes for the Texas and Arizona pages of OnlyInYourState.com and has never been more passionate about a job before. Outside of work, you can likely find her curled up on the sofa with a hot cup of coffee, watching a crime TV show or scary movie.
