ERCILDOUN: Not from around here!

A little ritual we have before heading off on road trips is to stop at Triple Fresh in Ercildoun for coffee and a breakfast sandwich. While we were enjoyed our breakfast while sitting at an outside table, a pickup truck pulled into the parking lot and two men walked past us toward the store.
One said to the other, "Out here, a lot of places have these boot things by the door."
I don't know if he was merely warning his buddy not to trip over the boot scraper or was filling him in about an odd quirk of these strange country folks "out here."
