  • You Might Be From the Rez if...

    You eat mutton stew and fry bread for breakfast.

    You drink coffee and chew Skoal at the same time.

    You were once rudely awaken in the middle of the night by a lost Tribal police officer.

    You car has more than two dents and a hole in the trunk where the keyhole should be.

    You use expressions like "issit", "aaaay", "ober thar", "goot" and "sssshh".

    You yell BINGO in your sleep.

    Your car antenna is a clothes hanger.

    You drive 2 hours just to go to the movies.

    You have to cut a roll of paper towel in half because you ran out of toilet tissue and the nearest store is 40 miles away.

    You know at least one bootlegger.

    The whole family hops in the truck just to pick up the mail.

    your car starts with a screwdriver.

    in your everyday life you unintentionally seem to be breaking taboos.

    all the people in the community or town you live in are your cousins! (cousin-brother /cousin- sister)

    you don't understand the purpose for storage lockers or their high rental costs when, the cars parked in your front yard store just as much stuff, plus it's free.

    You're head automatically turns at the sound of "shhhhhhhht".

    you put a "Free Peltier" sticker on your truck, and the FBI wiretaps your house.

    you get into a verbal fight with the waiter at your local Mexican restaurant over--Sopapilla, or is it Fry Bread?

    someone inadvertently points out directions with his lips and you know exactly where he is talking about.

    Here ya go folks, enjoy and feel free to add your own.

      Your TV and DVD player run off your car battery, then everybody helps you push-start your car later.

        Funny, but true!

        I was cleaning my Ultra Classic over the weekend with the radio playing. I also readjusted my running lights which mean using the battery.

        I got all geared up this morning hoping to ride in in style, but had a low voltage on the ignition!! Had to switch bikes, but need to tickle charge the battery overnight so I can ride that one tomorrow.

          I've never lived on a "rez" in my life, and neither did my dad, but he could have identified with much of the above in his youth, like being related to everyone in the neighborhood and using a hanger for an antennae. It's called being "mountain folk" in his neck of the woods.

          How about using old tires to make sandals and flattened out tin cans for an awesome tin roof for your house? Do rez folk do that?

                            ... you've ever gone into Tribal Police Department and asked how you could "Legally Kill Someone, " explaining to the officers that you don't want to break any laws or anything like that.
