I consider myself a half Mainer. Why is that? Well, I was born in Pennsylvania and bred here in Maine. I love this place so stinkin' much, however, because I am still very much attached to my PA roots, I sometimes make mistakes. Even after living here for over 20 years. But with that experience of simple life, I am able to help the next person avoid what I have done way too many times.

I mean, just recently, I called an Italian a Hoagie and a local Maine gave me a long speech about how incorrect I was. What was I thinking?

So because of this recent faux pas, I decided to make a list of the things I have learned in my 30 years here in Maine to not do or say to a local.

These are what I have learned that you should never ask or say to a Mainer.

I also once asked why someone had their pants tucked into their socks. I assumed it was some kind of bogus fashion statement. I was wrong. Mainer's tuck for ticks. It's for survival.

You will learn more below when you go through the list of 10 Things I've Learned You Should Never Say To Mainers.
