7 Things to Never Say to a Person From Shreveport
Everyone on this planet has certain things that simply press their buttons. Let's look at the seven things you do not want to say to a Shreveporter.
I've grown up in Shreveport all my life and most days I feel as though I'll be here forever. Growing up here, you learn a lot about this town and the people who also call it home. You learn a lot about what people here really like, but also, what people really dislike.
Today, I'm going to list the seven things you absolutely never want to say to a Shreveporter.
I get this one ALL THE TIME. Look, I love New Orleans as much as the next guy, but for some reason, out-of-towners seem to think New Orleans is all that exists in Louisiana. And most of the time, when you tell them we're a good five hours away, they somehow seem disappointed.
Man, I'm getting angry just typing this one. Look, hot is hot. In Shreveport, it's really really really hot. Why is there always someone that says, "It's not the heat, it's the humidity."?? HOT IS HOT, DAMMIT!
Even though this is something you don't say, it still makes Shreveporters just as angry. We're a nice group of people here. So if we hold the door open for you and the seven others behind you, not hearing a "thank you" can borderline make us lose faith in humanity.
This one might make me the angriest of all. Without fail, every single time I travel and tell someone where I'm from, they immediately respond with something along the lines of, "Louisiana, but where's your Cajun accent??"Not everyone from Louisiana talks like that!! Although, I secretly do wish I had a killer Cajun accent.
