  2. All the local restaurants serve tacos.
  3. Another country is closer than another state.
  4. You can only drive one way on the highway (North).
  5. You live one mile from four different border crossings.
  6. You drive past multiple “you may not bring firearms into Mexico” signs while only trying to drive home.
  7. There are both “hump”s and “dip”s in the road, some are marked... most are not.
  8. Border Patrol vehicles are more common than Police vehicles.
  9. The Texas flag is flown at the same level as both the USA and Mexico flags.
  10. People have fence sales instead of garage sales.
  11. Going to “the island” means going to the beach at South Padre Island.
  12. You can pay in pesos or dollars at the grocery store.
