If you don’t live here this won’t make sense. Now, if you’ve been reading my blog you might recognize a few things, but otherwise, nah.
But if you are from Dallas, this is hilarious.
I loved it, even though it didn’t have my favorite Dallas saying. That’s, “Well, you start out driving on Beltline.” Everything (including my house) is right off Beltline Road. I can be on a freeway fifty miles from my house and see a Beltline Exit sign. One weekend I’m going to drive the entire Beltline Road (it is a loop, surprise) – it might take two days.
Others that I hear(or say) that aren’t on the video:
- “I get nosebleeds if I go north of George Bush.”
- “I remember when the West End was cool.”
- “Nobody rides DART to the fair, it’s too crowded.”
- “Ugh, the water tastes awful, the lakes must have turned over.”
- “Should we take LBJ or George Bush.”
- “Should we go Woodall Rogers or the Mixmaster?”
- “Central’s all red, better take Greenville.”
- “There a wreck on 75, better take Coit.”
- “Stay away from 30, the Zipper is busted.”
- “I had to bail her out of Lou Sterrett”
- I don’t remember if it’s in Rockwall or Rowlett.”
- “Pho Pasteur has the best Pho.”
- “Bistro B has the best Pho.”
- “Pho Bac has the best Pho.”
- “Pho Bang has the best Pho.”
- “Pho Q has the best Pho.”
- “Pho King has the best Pho.”
- “He lives in this old house, it’s been there almost twenty years.”
- “They live in a Condo in Uptown.”
- “Who lives in all these houses?”
- “Let me borrow your DART pass.”
- “Let me borrow your Toll Tag.”
- “You can’t get to Deep Ellum from here.”
- “Are we waiting for the Red or the Blue?”
- “Whatever you do, don’t jaywalk in downtown”
- “A coyote got their cat.”
- “Back when Frisco was way out in the country.”
- “Back when Southwest had free drinks.”
- “I can’t believe you walked there.”
- “Is the AC all the way up?”
- “They need to hurry the hell up, they’re driving the speed limit.”
- “That Mexican food place looks awful, their food must be great.”
At any rate, here it is:
What Dallas sayings do you have that you treasure/are completely sick of? What sayings do you hear every day where you are at?
Definitely Pho Bac 🙂
I need to try Pho Bac again. The problem is, I like Pho Pasteur so much, it’s hard to go to the other street corner.
Hmmmm, Pho Wars. That sounds like a good blog entry.
I can’t say I hear a lot of sayings for Dallas, as I live in not-country-anymore Frisco, but I’ve hard a chunk of those Dallas ones, and yes I know them to be true 🙂
Though one common complaint I hear is about roads changing names randomly on you, cause you gotta memorize 3 or 4 names for one road!
Oh, I know what you mean about the names of the roads. Do you use the name, or the number. The worst is RL Thornton – which is the name both of 30 going east and 35 going South.
Almost as bad are the streets that change direction and/or name as they move from what used to be one little town to the next. East Dallas is really bad about that.
