Midwestern Phrases No One Else Uses
This is my favorite... and I have definitely done this...
Example: "Ope, Jeez, SORRY!" Please note- no one else is in the car but you.
There are some other things that people say in the Midwest- but not in Minnesota. I have never heard anyone say "Expressway". Have you? They say that people in the Midwest don't say "Highway" or "Freeway". BTW- that is ALL we say here. Like straight up- all we say... and an occasional "Interstate". But whatever. Maybe they are considering more than just Minnesota, North and South Dakota, Wisconsin and Iowa as the Midwest. I feel like Ohio is a stretch. That is more getting to the East. At least I think so.
Check out all the funny phrases here. Some of them are spot on, and some of them are a real head scratcher.
