11 Foolproof Ways To Make Someone From Milwaukee Cringe
Milwaukeeans are often kind, patient, and unshakeable humans. That being said, we have a way of life here in The Good Land, and there are some things you just don’t do. These are eleven of the most foolproof ways to make a Milwaukeean cringe, but don’t worry, we’ll correct you so we can all soon live in harmony.
1. Try to explain why we should move to Chicago.
Most of us don’t have a problem with Chicago and have visited many times, but we wouldn’t dare move there. We understand that our city might be smaller, but it’s still better.
2. Root for the Bears on game day.
Rooting for the Packers is the way to our heart, but honestly, any team is less cringe-worthy than the Bears.
3. Ask if we live on a farm.
You might be surprised by this since Milwaukee is a
city, but many people associate Wisconsin with farms. Just no.
4. Complain about driving in this:
Don’t even start. This is our lives.
5. Tell us that ice cream is better than frozen custard…
6. Or that hot dogs are preferable over brats.
Now, this is just crazy.
7. Offer us a Bud Light.
Especially if you’re at a Milwaukee bar. There’s Miller, PBR, and Schlitz on tap. Don’t you dare give us a Budweiser.
8. Try to hold an intervention for our "drinking problem."
We might be living in Brew City, but we know how to handle ourselves.
9. Tell us to go vegan.
Don’t get us wrong, we
love our vegan friends and Milwaukee is home to some amazing vegan restaurants. That said, this is the Dairy State and it’s hard for us to dream of giving up cheese.
10. Suggest a chain restaurant for dinner.
There are hundreds of amazing restaurants to choose from in Milwaukee. Understandably, it can be hard to choose! All in all, anywhere is better than a chain.
11. Keep bringing up the headlines.
Milwaukee often gets a bad rep for our crime rates, but we’re working hard to fix that. Let us tell you how great this city is before you bring up the negative!
Eek! We’re cringing with how un-Milwaukee this list was. What would make you absolutely cringe as a Milwaukeean? Let us know in the comments!
