1. Call Utah a “flyover state.”
Seriously? You can’t call us a “flyover state” and then sneak in to use our world-class ski resorts in the winter or our red rock hiking trails in the summer. And never lump us in with the Midwest.
2. Ask us about polygamy.
Polygamy has been illegal in Utah since the 1800s, people. We’re not a mass group of polygamists. And we don’t want to talk to you about Utah until you can: 1. Reference a more current event. 2. Stop watching a drama series on TV about fundamentalist groups you then project onto us. And 3. Come up with a more interesting conversation starter after we say “I’m from Utah.”
