How to Tell if Someone Isn't From St. Louis [PHOTOS]

Have you ever met someone new and something was just... off? You can't quite place it, but something is weird with them.

Maybe they lock their car doors. Or they don't worship the Red Rocker. Or they make a face at dinner when you ask them to pass a "fark."

Then you ask what high school they went to, and their perplexed expression finally gives it away: They aren't from here.

Save yourself some confusion next time and learn the signs that someone isn't from St. Louis. It can really save you some time.
