A native of Harlowton was mistakenly identified as a non-local Monday night because he wasn’t wearing a 406 T-shirt.
Patrons of the Livingston bar where the incident occurred were further confused when the man’s female companion, who entered the establishment wearing a plain white top and Cruel brand jeans, was without a “Montana-Shape Love” shirt or even a Montana-shaped necklace with a gemstone heart on the location of her city.
“Where are they from?” questioned a three-year resident of Bozeman whose state affiliation was clearly emblazoned on his cap.
“It was pretty hard to tell if these people really ‘got’ the Montana lifestyle by the way they dressed,” remarked the bar owner.
“If it hadn’t been for his elk license and her high school barrel racing champion belt buckle, we’d have had to assume they were from Minnesota or something.”
It was discovered on further investigation that the couple also failed to display a “Get Lost” sticker on the back window of their truck.
