'I will never get used to being called ma'am,' said no Texan EVER. However, a Texan did not speak these words, they actually came from a woman born and raised in New York who moved to Texas. Recently on TikTok (of course) she shared several culture shock moments she had upon moving here. 


It is no surprise to anyone that her first observation was the driving situation. According to @mswolfmath, no one uses blinkers (turn signals) and you get cut off in traffic a lot. She also claims that many Texans "drive unnecessarily large pick up trucks". Well Ms. Math, I can't argue with you much here. I DO use my blinkers, it is a pet peeve of mine that some don't, and I get cut off plenty. Plus dang near every person in my immediate family owns a truck!

Of all things this TikToker commented on were kolaches - or 'pigs in a blanket' as some of us refer to them. Apparently NYC knows nothing of this fantastic breakfast item. It's a shame. We love our kolaches, @mswolfmath is pleasantly surprised by what she calls, 'a bun with nothing inside.' Lol.

This TikToker claims that HEB has a "cult following". Well duh. Don't you know the three letters stand for Here Everything's Better or that "no store does more" than my HEB? An outing to shop at HEB can turn into an all-day affair, get used to it!

And finally, the TikToker says she may never get used to a polite person calling her ma'am. Yet another thing you have to get used to. In these parts, we know manners and respect. We teach it to our children, we practice it daily. I don't know how things are done in New York. I have never been but after that comment, I may never want to visit.

@mswolfmath I will never ever get used to being called “mam” 😂 #teachersoftiktok #texas #katespadenyonthemove #CinderellaMovie ♬ Wii Shop Channel - McTweet
