You Know You’re a Vermonter When…

As most of you know, I love the beautiful state of Vermont. Well, I got an e-mail from my mom today, head of operations at Eddie’s (that basically means I would have no company without her), who sent me an e-mail with Jeff Foxworthy’s comments on the Green Mountain State. They are as follows:

If your local Dairy Queen is closed from September
through May, you live in Vermont .
If someone in a Home Depot store offers you assistance
and they don’t work there, you live in Vermont .
If you’ve worn shorts and a parka at the same time, > > you live in Vermont .
If you’ve had a lengthy telephone conversation with
someone who dialed a wrong number, you live in Vermont .
If you measure distance in hours, you live in Vermont .
If you know several people who have hit a deer more
than once, you live in Vermont .
If you have switched from “heat” to “A/C” in the same
day and back again, you live in Vermont .
If you can drive 75 mph through 2 feet of snow during
a raging blizzard without flinching, you live in Vermont .
If you install security lights on your house and
garage, but leave both unlocked, you live in Vermont .
If you carry jumpers in your car and your wife knows
how to use them, you live in Vermont .
If you design your kid’s Halloween costume to fit
over a snowsuit, you live in Vermont .
If the speed limit on the highway is 55 mph — you’re
going 80 and everybody is passing you, you live in Vermont .
If driving is better in the winter because the
potholes are filled with snow, you live in Vermont .
If you know all 4 seasons: almost winter, winter,
mud season and road construction season, you live in Vermont .
If you have more miles on your snow blower than your
car, you live in Vermont .
If you find 10 degrees “a little chilly”, you live in Vermont .
If you actually understand these jokes, and forward
them to all your Vermont friends & others, you live in Vermont ..

I just thought I would pass these Vermont jokes along. Go ahead and laugh, because most of them are true. It’s just how we are in Vermont. And you’ve got it–the people that run Eddie’s Energy Bars are just as cool.
