How to tell if your from Utah

I love living in Utah.  I loved raising my children here.  It is a spectacular place with mountains to ski in, lakes to boat and swim it, the amazing Great Salt Lake, the Bonneville Salt Flats, Arches National Park, Zions National Park, a rich history of pioneer endurance and settlement, Park City Resort (my mom Sally was raised there), the Sundance Film Festival, home of the 2002 Winter Olympics, beautiful deserts, the Shakespearean Festival, world renowned Universities and hospitals,  wonderful people, and soooo much more.
This is also a place of funny quirks and idiosyncracies (sp?), and Jeff Foxworthy has pointed out some hilarious insights about us "Utahns".  If you live here, have lived here, vacationed here, driven through here, or possibly even flown over Utah, you will most definitely understand and laugh about the following... 

Jeff Foxworthy explains Utahns!
If someone in a Home Depot store offers you assistance and they don't work there, you live in Utah.

If you've worn shorts and a parka at the same time, you live in Utah

If 'vacation' means going anywhere south of Salt Lake City for the weekend, you live in Utah.
