The First Year, They Scare You To Death;
The Second Year, They Work You To Death;
The Third Year, They Bore You To Death.

You Know You're From Louisiana If ...

Here are some ways to know if you're a true Louisianian...

1. You can properly pronounce Lafayette, Bossier, Natchitoches,
Opelousas, Shongaloo, Pontchartrain, Ouachita, and you know
that New Orleans doesn't have a long "e" sound anywhere in it

2. You think people who complain about the heat in their states
are pussies.

3. A tornado warning siren is your signal to go out in the yard
and look for a funnel.

4. You know that the true value of a parking space is not
determined by the distance to the door, but by the
availability of shade.

5. Stores don't have bags, they have sacks.

6. You've seen people wear bib overalls at funerals.

7. You think everyone from a bigger city has an accent.

8. You measure distance in minutes.

9. Little Smokies are something you serve only for special
occasions.

10. You go to the lake because you think it is like going to
the ocean.

11. You listen to the weather forecast before picking out an
outfit.

12. You know cowpatties are not made of beef.

13. Someone you know has used a LSU football schedule to
plan their wedding date.

14. You have known someone who has a belt buckle bigger
than your fist.

15. You aren't surprised to find movie rental, ammunition, and
bait all in the same store.

16. A Mercedes Benz isn't a status symbol. A Ford F-250
Extended Bed Crew Cab Powerstroke is a status symbol.

17. You know everything goes better with 'Tony's'.

18. You learned how to shoot a gun before you learned how
to multiply

19. You actually get these jokes and are "fixin" to send them
to your friends.

20. You're not offended by the term "coonass." If anything,
it's a compliment.

Finally, you are 100% Louisianian if you have ever had this
conversation:

"You wanna coke?"
"Yeah."
"What kind?"
"Dr Pepper."

Yo anonymous, if you're calling LAKE Pontchartrain a bayou, ya need ta come to Vacherie so I can smack you upside the head. And there's a lake near my house that sure ain't a ditch, bayou, or the canal. Are you sure you're from Louisiana?

There are several different areas of Louisiana. So, it's only fair to say that this whole list is accurate when talking about Louisiana as a state. North Louisiana (above Opelousas) is nothing like central Louisiana and south Louisiana. It's different all over the state lol
