6. We don’t talk about the Cowboys' last playoff win
Why? You know why.
7. The roads are never NOT under construction
Traffic’s pretty rough to begin with. The construction makes it worse. The freeway lane you’re driving in will be closed next time you pass through, guaranteed.
8. Dallas and Fort Worth -- NOT the same thing
They may get abbreviated DFW, but Dallas and Fort Worth are completely different – in just about every way possible -- people, culture, feel, even location. It’s kind of far, you guys, and what with the construction it takes a while to get there.
9. Uptown isn’t ALL douchebags
Most people you’ll run into are actually pretty friendly (as is the case with most of Dallas). Are there frat guys overserving themselves? Yes. Is there more Ed Hardy and spiked hair than there ought to be? Sure. Are there 50-year-olds in pointy boots and $150 button downs creeping on 20-year-olds with short skirts, spray tans, and artificially enhanced chests? Yeah, but that’s just entertaining.
10. You can buy a house when you’re like 22
Lots and lots of suburbs + lots of ways to get to Downtown = being a homeowner despite still being a pretty irresponsible human.
11. Most people who live in “Dallas”, don’t actually live in Dallas
Minnesota has 10,000 lakes, we have 10,000 suburbs, and (as mentioned above) many people end up there. It’s not uncommon for someone to work Downtown and live in McKinney. For reference, that’s like driving from Canada to Nebraska for work. Dallas is big.
