I hate it when people find out I'm from Texas and they automatically assume I ride a horse around town and am a rancher or that I know something about cattle. Some people were actually amazed when I told them I drive a car and a pretty new one at that. Oh and while I'm at it, I don't wear a cowboy hat either and I don't wear cowboy boots.
I went to Pennsylvania last summer to visit a friend of mine and to go to a national tournament and test. We went ot the grocery store and I was talking to my friend about how expensive everything was there compared to Texas. One woman asked where I was from and I told her south Texas. She looked me over and said, "Are you a cowgirl?" "No." "Oh I'm sorry, I thought everyone from Texas was a cowboy." "Hmmm funny, I thought everyone from Pennsylvania was Amish." She just walked away and didn't say another word.
