The Top 7 Things You Should Never Do When You’re in Texas
Texas is like no other state out there. I've lived in other states and it's just not the same. There's just something about the Lone Star State. Texans have their own way of pronouncing things and they're pretty particular about what they drink. For example, you should never, ever stand between a Texan and their sweet tea.
That's just the beginning. The only thing bigger than Texas hospitality is its pride. There are certain do's and don'ts in the state. Let's take a look at some of the things you should not do in Texas according to Culture Trip.
LOOK: TOP 7 THINGS YOU SHOULD NEVER DO WHEN YOU'RE IN TEXAS
Don't Try Telling a Texan Burritos Aren't For Breakfast
To me, burritos are the new breakfast of champions. Ok, maybe not, but they are an amazing breakfast in my book. Chorizo and Egg or Carne Guisada are some local Abilene favorites.
You Should Never Miss the Stars at Night
No truer words have ever been spoken. The big bright skies at night are a sight to behold. From constellations to shooting stars, you'll see it in the skies of Texas.
Don't Skip The Line At Franklin Barbecue
If you do, you'll be sorry. The food is that good. Texans know where to find good barbecue. Six days a week folks gather and start lining up at breakfast for this Austin eatery. Wait times can be anywhere from three to five hours.
Don't Assume That Coke Means Coca-Cola
While Coca-Cola is a tasty beverage, the word Coke is a more general term in Texas. In fact, Coke could mean a number of carbonated drinks. Just beware, if a Texan orders a Coke, they could very well mean a Dr. Pepper.
Don't Text During a Movie at the Alamo Drafthouse
The Alamo Drafthouse operates in several locations throughout Texas. They enforce a strict no-talking and no texting policy. In fact, the company has made headlines before including an angry customer being ejected from the movie for texting.
Don't Mess With Texas
It's now a statement that encompasses the whole state. The slogan was used as part of a campaign against littering on Texas highways back in 1985. The phrase still goes today and you can pick up a hefty fine for pitching your trash out in Texas.
Don't Try to Make Sense of the Grammer
Texas plays by its own rules when it comes to grammar and phrases. A couple of popular phrases include Y'all (plural for you) and the beloved Fixin' To, meaning someone is about to go somewhere or do something. Sometimes Texas slang is a language all its own.
It seems like you always hear about things that you can do for good things to happen, but in Texas, it's actually things that you don't do that can make all the difference.
Something else that is a good thing not to do is break laws. Believe it or not, Texas still has some usual laws in its law books. Keep scrolling to see which ones.
