I’ve lived in Ottawa for the majority of my life so I’ve picked up on a few things that everyone does around the city.
I’ve compiled them into a nice list for you. How many can you relate to and what things would you add to the list?
Leaving the Sens game early.
Seriously!? There’s 5 minutes left in the game and you’re more concerned about beating the traffic? C’mon man, if they score in the last minute we get free burgers!
Driving slow in the left lane.
Again, you cannot be serious! The left lane is for passing and the right lane is for slower traffic. There are literally signs that say this!
Going to paint nights.
Finally someone combined my two favourite activities! Drinking and pretending to be Bob Ross. Nothing says Ottawa nightlife quite like drinking wine and coming home with a painting only your mother would love.
Eating shawarmas after dark.
“It’s 2:30 in the afternoon, let’s get a shawarma!” said no one in Ottawa ever. Change it to 2:30 in the morning and we have a deal!
Complain about the cold in the winter only to crank the A/C to that same temperature in July.
This happens every year. How are you not used to it yet?
Spending the weekend in Montreal.
We’ve all heard the old saying. The best part about Ottawa is how close it is to Montreal.
