10 Illinois Stereotypes People Say Are Accurate But We Think Are Questionable
If you're a curious sort like I am and ever Google the phrase; "most common Illinois stereotypes" you will find things like:
- Everyone sucks at driving in Illinois. (Our roads may suck, but not all our drivers do)
- All Illinois politicians are shady. (Pretty much true, but I feel bad saying "all" politicians are shady. It might be more appropriate to say "Most".)
- It's really expensive to live in Illinois. (Taxes are high in Illinois, but obviously, not all homes and cities are)
- There's a big difference between Chicago and the rest of the state of Illinois. (100% true for so many reasons)
During my quest to find more "accurate" Illinois stereotypes, I came across this article on movoto.com. The article lists 10 Illinois stereotypes that are "completely accurate", and it immediately put me in defense mode. Now, before I list them I will admit that there is some truth behind all of these judgments, BUT I would like to argue my case against each one of them to see if you agree.
