We asked people on Twitter about the most typical moments they've ever experienced in Montreal.\nThe answers range from the hilariously absurd to the heartwarming.\nWhat is the most typical Montreal moment you've ever experienced?\nVisit MTLBlog for more headlines.\nLast week we took to Twitter to ask users what the strangest thing they ever experienced in Montreal was. The answers ranged from the totally bizarre, like the free-range rooster wandering the streets late at night, to the expected, like Montreal's constantly devolving road structures and never-ending construction dance.\nWe've all had our share of the bizarre. Last summer I was crossing the street at the corner of de Maisonneuve and Crescent while someone was walking their tiger down the crosswalk. A freakin' tiger. It even had a leash. To this day my friend and I have to ask, "Wait, we really did see that, right? It wasn't a dream?"\nBut what makes Montreal truly Montreal? What are moments so stereotypical that you wouldn't even need to see the word 'Montreal' attached to the tweet and you would know it took place in this city?\nThe answers won't surprise you. We've all experienced them in one way or another. Some are funny, and other's are thorns in our side that don't seem to be getting any better, and some of them are rather sad. But they are all things as Montrealers that we can share and nod knowingly in agreement to.\nLiving in a province that is truly multilingual is a huge part of what gives Montreal it's personality. Walking into most any business in the city and you'll be greeted with "bonjour-hi" signaling to customers, 'Hey, we speak both languages here."\n"Bonjour-Hi"— Dr Navarro-Ramirez (@RodNavarroMD) August 20, 2019\nSometimes conversations are held in both languages at the same time!\nSpeaking english & getting an answer en francais..— GPincin (@Gabypincin) August 20, 2019\nBut if your French accent is great, some of the street names and asking for directions can be tricky.\nAsking where a street is in English nobody understanding then finally one person says the name with a French twist and now everyone understands the name.

Who knows what they’re doing. They’ll probably do it again in six months.— Kelly St-Laurent (@authorstlaurent) August 20, 2019\nAs a lover of Montreal though hater of the winters, I have a personal reaction to this tweet.\nFalling on my ass because the sidewalk isn’t deiced...🥵— Natasha #JeSuisPuccap (@NatLaPirate) August 20, 2019\nThen, of course, there is the negative and rather shitty part of Montreal.

They take it easy and never bother too much in this city, that's also typical.— Ihor Stashchuk (@IhorSeegor) August 20, 2019\nOne great thing is that Montreal never stands still, we are constantly changing.\ngoing to an address and a new resto or bar opened there... never the same :)— Ceza (@itscezaa) August 20, 2019\nBut there are some things that never do.\n#beautysluncheonette & @biospheremtl pic.twitter.com/sQPC4Nt4Nn— Trixie Von Thrillz (@ThrillzVon) August 20, 2019\nWaiting in line at 4 AM at La Banquise, outside, when it’s -40 degrees.— Alexanne Laplante (@AlexanneLap) August 20, 2019\nThere were also the more unexpected answers like this guy who got to experience Expo67 and a ride on the new metro.\nTaking the new Metro to expo67— Mr Wilson (@turnipmangle) August 20, 2019\nThere are some people that have a very different type of Montreal experience. Either that or a few too many trips to the SQDC.\nAn 'authentic seance' on a intermittent rainy afternoon in upscale Westmount Montreal with other parapsychologists and visiting trance medium and professor from Concordia University.
