We may be a part of "friendly Manitoba", but sometimes Winnipeggers can still act like a-holes. We're maniacal Jets fans, we're impatient drivers (esp. when it's 4:30 p.m. and we're stuck on southbound Pembina), and we love to complain about pretty much everything.
Fortunately for us, our wicked ways and bad behaviour are sometimes forgiven, at least within our city limits. But take your hostile habits elsewhere, and I'm willin' to bet that somebody will call you on it. To save you a dirty look or two (and maybe a slap in the face), I've managed to pinpoint a few things that make you an asshole pretty much anywhere else but Winnipeg.
Specifically requesting honey dill sauce when ordering chicken fingers.
Us Winnipeggers all know what it is (a gift from God, duh). But go somewhere else? Not so much. You could try and explain it, but I don't think you'd quite do it justice. Stick with the standard ketchup next time.
