Here Are 8 Things You’ll Never Catch Anyone From Milwaukee Doing
Midwesterners are pretty stuck in their ways, and people from Milwaukee are no exception. Milwaukeeans are an easy-going bunch, but there are a few things in which we draw the line. Here are eight things you’ll never,
ever catch someone from MKE doing.
1. Not having an ice scraper in our car.
If you've ever made the mistake of forgetting your ice scraper, it's one you only make once! There's nothing worse than being trapped under ice, and with the winters we have, you'll never catch a true Milwaukeean in that situation.
2. Drinking beer that isn't up to our standards.
We have plenty of craft beer, which is wonderful, but we'll still order a Schlitz or PBR. Milwaukee is the home to a lot of cheap beer, but you'll never see us order something that isn't local.
3. Buying subpar cheese.
Living in the Dairy Land comes with endless cheese options. You won't see us eating anything less than the best... and turning up our noses at the rest.
4. Choosing a hot dog over a brat.
If you're at a cookout and you invite a Milwaukeean, you better have the brats on deck! We won't be eating hot dogs.
5. Cheering for the Cubs.
The rivalry is strong between Illinois and Wisconsin. No Milwaukeean will ever turn over to the dark side.
6. Or the Bears.
They still suck.
7. Not leaving a tip.
Milwaukeeans are some of the most courteous folks you'll ever meet. You'll never catch someone from Milwaukee refusing to tip!
8. Living anywhere else.
At the end of the day, there's just nowhere else a Milwaukeean would rather be. We're adaptable, down to earth, and the most easy-going people you'll ever meet. We could fit in anywhere, but there's just no place like home.
There you have it, eight things Milwaukeeans absolutely won’t budge on. What would you add to the list? Let us know in the comments!
