This is not mine....someone sent it to me and I thought I'd pass it on. (Some of it is actually true! LOL!)
~~~~~~~~~~

If you are from the northern states and planning on visiting or moving
to the South, there are a few things you should know that will help you

Adapt to the difference in lifestyles:

The North has dating services, The South has family reunions.

The North has sun-dried toe-mah-toes, The South has 'mater samiches.

The North has coffee houses, The South has Waffle Houses.

The North has double last names, The South has double first names.

The North has an ambulance, The South has an amalance.

The North has Indy car races, The South has stock car races.

The North has Cream of Wheat, The South has grits.

The North has green salads, The South has collard greens

The North has lobsters, The South has crawdads

The North has the rust belt, The South has the Bible Belt

If you run your car into a ditch, don't panic. Four men in a
four-wheel drive pickup truck with a tow chain will be along shortly. Don't try
to help them, just stay out of their way. This is what they live for.

Don't be surprised to find movie rentals and bait in the same
store. DO NOT buy food at this store.

Remember, "y'all" is singular, "all y'all" is plural, and "all y'all's" is plural possessive.

Get used to hearing "Y'all ain't from round here, are ya?"

You may hear a Southerner say "Ought!" to a dog or child. This is
short for "Y'all ought not do that!" and is the equivalent of a Northerner saying "No!"

Don't be worried at not understanding what people in the South are saying. They can't understand you either.

The first Southern statement to creep into a transplanted Northerner's vocabulary is the adjective "big'ol," truck or "big'ol" boy. Most Northerners begin their Southern-influenced dialect this way. All of them are in denial about it !

Be advised that "He needed killin" is a valid defense here.

If there is the prediction of the slightest chance of even the smallest accumulation of snow, your presence is required at the local grocery store. It doesn't matter whether you need anything or not. You just have to go there.

When you come up on a person driving 15 mph down the middle of the road, remember that most folks learn to drive on a John Deere tractor, and that is the proper speed and position for that vehicle.

Do not be surprised to find that 10-year-olds own their own shotguns, they are proficient marksmen, and their mammas taught them how to aim.

As one who is married to a man with a 4 wheel drive SUV and has a son with a 4 wheel truck, I can truthfully atest that this statement is TRUE!!!!!!!!! (especially the part about it being what they live for!) :lol: And they LIVE for snow down here!!!! It's one of their greatest joys in life to go out and pull out the ones who slide off the road and get stuck! They do it for the fun of it! :hysterical:

No truer statement has ever been made!

There's a few more in there that are surely true, but I'll leave those for all y'all to comment on!! :lol:

I was born and raised in the south, but have lived 52 years in the north. My friend in Alabama calls me 'half yank".

Karen is right.All yall up north may not like snow be I love it when we get it here. When they start calling for it you ought to get the the grocery store asap so you can get your bread, milk, and eggs. When the first flake falls out of the sky the schools close and the city shuts down. We have 4X4 also. We pull people out for the fun of it. No charge. I guess it is just a southern thang (thing).

In WV it's hard to find a back road that doesn't have a steep hill side on one side if not both sides of the roadway. After major storms it's not unusual for trees or limbs to be down across the road.
You would be surprised how many "good ol' boys" have chain saws in the back of their pick up just waitin' for something to cut up.........

Yes, the schools close that quickly :twisted: And if you don't get to the grocery store ASAP there will not be bread, milk and eggs! Don't ask me why.... it's been that way since I was a little, little girl! :shock: Yes, cbr_guest, I guess is is a southern thang! :hysterical:

Alan, every since Hugo came thru I think it is that way here, too! I do know when my guys go out during and after the snow storms, they always throw the chain saw in the back of the 4x4s 'just in case!'

And chains, Alan. If you can't cut up a tree, then maybe you can pull someone out of the ditch! Too true.
