After being back in Texas and spending some quality time in the Northeast…I have finally realized why people dislike Texans. I used to always get asked questions about what was wrong with us and why we thought we were better and I laughed. Mainly thinking they were joking.
They weren’t and for the most part we do think we are better. I also think it is literally forced into our brains to think that we are better. I cannot come up with another conclusion.
In my current job I work a lot with probation officers and parole officers from all over Texas. In New York I did a very similar job and worked with probation officers and parole officers all over the state. The ones in New York were usually rather friendly, some would get a bit rude if you were behind on giving them something. But nothing over the top and I dealt with them for 3 years.
In Texas, they are fucking crazy. One example a PO emailed me at 3pm asking me to call her. From 2:30-5pm everyday I am busy doing groups with the youth, so I did not get the email til after 5. I go into work at 9. By the time I got in this morning she had already re-emailed me the same email. And this PO is not the exception…most are like this. I get excited when one is calm. But just people too (including myself) we just assume everything revolves around us. And possibly why I never get along with Texas men…it just never works.
I swear Texan could be its own form of Narcissism in the DSM.
