1. Wear a Cubs or Bears jersey.
Wearing the enemy’s colors is a great way to start things off on the wrong foot.
2. Say you’re lactose intolerant.
We are not trying to be intolerant towards the intolerant, but know that we have one and a half drawers full of cheese in our fridge.
3. Smirk if we say bag/dragon/flag.
It is okay to find our accents endearingly adorable, but not to openly laugh or make fun of us.
