Do we have to say it? Yes, some things are just common cents. Like washing your hands after using the restroom, yet some people don't do it. What about living in Casper, Wyoming? Are there unspoken rules that we must abide by? We asked you on Facebook, and there are plenty of unspoken rules. We think, when used correctly, they could make you a better person.

A lot of these rules are about the weather. The wind shapes our lives. It carves the hills and valleys, making us take hold of the car door when opening it. The wind messes up our hair, and we must get used to it. Or, get a hat.

We have other unspoken rules that are about being nice to each other. Casper is a "large" town in Wyoming, but we are still a small community. You never know when you will be the one in need. So, as Vernan said, "Don't be a dick."

The other category of unspoken rules relates to the outdoors. With a rich history in ranching and agriculture, we are naturally protective of the land and its habitat. It's common sense not to put a baby bison in the back of your minivan because it looks cold. You would think you wouldn't have to say that. Yet it happened in Yellowstone.

Most of these unspoken rules are sage advice anywhere you live, but they represent what it is like to live in Casper. They can eco The Code of The West, which is written into the Wyoming State Constitution. We are only a few states who have a code of ethics. That's something to be proud of.

Warning People Don't Understand Why Wyomingites Do These Things
