9 times Canada was extra Canadian

A few of the many things Canada is known for is its terribly cold weather, extreme hockey fans, overly apologetic nature, and the great outdoors. Sometimes Canadian stereotypes can be a little over-exaggerated but sometimes they are right on the money, eh? We asked our office to share one of the most Canadian things that has ever happened to them and these were their responses:

Classics: 

1. Earlier this winter, I saw a guy cleaning the snow off his car with a hockey stick

2. When you are in line at Timmies and the people in front of you are arguing over who is going to pay for the other person because they both want to.

Friend 1: “Hey, I’ll get that.”
Friend 2: “No, I’ll get it.”
Friend 1: “No, I insist let me pay for it!”
Friend 2: “No, no, that’s ok, really!”

3. I once ran into Bubbles from the Trailer Park Boys at the bar.

 

 

4. I used to wear a snowsuit under my Halloween costume.

 

 

5. I’ve apologized to inanimate objects and I thank Siri when I ask her a question.

 

6. One of my coworkers went to the National Scotties Tournament of Hearts — My mother (whom she’s never met) sent her a curling mug to congratulate her. To which the coworker responded with a hand-made curling card. They are now penpals.

The Great OOTdoors: 

7. Ten minutes after arriving in Newfoundland our street was blocked by a Moose.

 

 

8. I was once followed by a beaver.

 

 

9. I used to play hockey on a lake.

 

 


To some these may seem completely normal and to others right out of’er but one thing’s for certain — Canadians are proud of their roots. Now it’s time to grab a pack of timbits and a double-double. Take’r easy!
