ADVICE FOR ANYONE MOVING TO SASKATCHEWAN



1. Save all bacon grease. You will be instructed later how to use it.

2. If you do run your car into a ditch, don't panic. Four men in the cab of a four wheel drive with a 12-pack of beer and a tow chain will be along shortly. Don't try to help them. Just stay out of their way. This is what they live for.
 
3. Remember: We say please and thank you a lot. Men also nod their heads at everyone they walk by and women smile. We are just nice like that.
 
4. Get used to the phrase "It's not the cold, it's the wind and the collateral phrase "You call this hot? Wait'll August.".
 
5. Don't tell us how you did it somewhere else, we will be polite but honestly Nobody cares.
 
6. If you think it's too hot in the Summers, don't worry. It'll cool down-in December
 
7. A Mercedes-Benz is not a status symbol, a Tractor, a quad or a pick-up is.
 
8. If someone says they're "fixin" to do something, that doesn't mean anything's broken.
 
9. Every 30 kilometers or so you will find a Dollar Store, Timmy's or a Subway.
 
10. If you see a slower moving vehicle on a two lane road pull onto the shoulder that is called "courtesy", if you don't understand this, reconsider moving to a rude province.
 
11. Grilling is a necessity..No matter the weather.. someone is outside grilling something.
 
12. Roughriders and Blue Bomber games must be taken into consideration for weddings, funerals, and divorces. Don't plan ANYTHING on these days.
 
13. Everything is better with Ranch dressing or ketchup
 
14. DO NOT honk your horn at us to be obnoxious, we will sit there until we die.
 
15. We pull over and stop for emergency vehicles to pass.
 
16. We pull over for funeral processions, turn our music off and men remove hats or caps. Some people put their hand over their heart.
 
17. "OPE" is a way of saying scuse me. You will catch on😂
 
18. If you don't like the weather here, wait 15 minutes, it will change.
 
19. Hauling hay is a rite of passage.
 
20. The index finger wave from the steering wheel to everyone you pass on a country road.
 
21. If you hear your family or friends talk about POTLUCK or a CASSEROLE, sit down and take notes.
 
22. Every corner you take, you will see a cow, rig or a old barn.
 
23. We do say hey, don't judge us.
 
24. We do support our oil field!
 
25. We do support our farmers!!
 
26. Its a bunny hug. Not a hoodie!!!
 
27. We drink VICO, not chocolate milk!
 
28. We eat dinner @ noon, and supper @ 6:00!
A lunch is something you take with you!
 
Welcome to Saskatchewan the NICER province... as far as province's go, were pretty good.
 
(do not throw out your bacon grease you will need it for fry bread)
 
So true!
