Midlanders talk the talk and walk the walkMidlanders talk the talk and walk the walkhttps://www.recenter.tamu.edu/news/newstalk-texas/?Item=13542015-04-02T06:59:00Z2015-04-02T00:00:00Z

MIDLAND - Texas has some of the fastest-growing metropolitan areas in the nation, and the Midland-Odessa region is no exception.

Texas Monthly's Ultimate Newcomer’s Guide teaches new Texans how to walk, talk, eat, drink, dress, drive and otherwise act like a native.

Here are some survival tips for new Midlanders:

• Don’t try to drive down Wadley Ave. when it rains...or Garfield St...or Illinois Ave. Actually, just stay home because almost every road floods.

• When one writer’s car overheated, after pulling over, a random stranger pulled up to see if all was okay. For big-city people, that could almost warrant a 911 call. But here, Midland folks are genuinely compassionate, helpful and welcoming.

• The term “turn signal” does not exist in Midland.

Take a look at the entire list at the Midland Reporter-Telegram.
