18 Signs You're The Only Canadian In Your Friend Group
As told by Robin Scherbatsky aka Robin Sparkles from How I Met Your Mother.
So your friend group has been blessed with your Canadian presence. That's pretty cool.
But being the only Canadian in the group can have its ups and downs.
Your heart breaks every time you realize you have no one to celebrate Canada Day with.
Your friends always point out when you say "eh?" in conversation.
They always expect you to be the polite one.
When in reality, you are equally as crazy as or even more psycho than they are.
WHO'S THE POLITE ONE NOW?
You're constantly trying to impress them with facts about Canada, but they never seem to care.
You just have to sit there and take it when they make all the riding-polar-bears-to-school and living-in-igloo jokes.
You completely lose it when they make fun of hockey, question the quality of Tim Hortons, or laugh when you say "sorry."
And just when you think they've run out of jokes...
...they think of another one.
You also get blank stares from them when you ask simple, innocent questions, like "Where's the washroom?"
And you are forced to live with a variety of other cultural differences.
Not to mention the fact you have to deal with the dreaded horror of not understanding the hype of college basketball.
Sometimes it can feel pretty lonely.
But don't forget about all the perks that come with being Canadian!
You can help share the greatness of Canada with others.
And represent Canada in friendly debates about which country is better.
You can impress them with those two sentences of French you remember from school.
At the end of the day, remember that you're one amazing person who hails from one amazing nation.
And your friends are lucky to have you!
