On Moving to The South

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

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

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

The North has switchblade knives, the South has Lee Press-on Nails.

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

The North has Ted Kennedy, the South has Jesse Helms.

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....Don't 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 "You 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 saying "No!"

Don't be worried at not understanding what people 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," as in "big'ol truck" or "big'ol boy".  Most Northerners begin their Southern-influenced dialect this way.
All of them are in denial about it.

The proper pronunciation you learned in school is no longer proper.

If you hear a Southerner exclaim, "Hey, y'all, watch this," you should stay out of the way.
These are likely to be the last words he'll ever say.

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, and that is the proper speed and position for that vehicle.

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

In the South, we have found that the best way to grow a lush green lawn is to pour gravel on it and call it a driveway.

If you do settle in the South and bear children, don't think we will accept them as Southerners.
After all, if the cat had kittens in the oven, we wouldn't call 'em biscuits!

Possums sleep in the middle of the road with their feet in the air.

There are 5,000 types of snakes and 4,998 live in Georgia.

There are 10,000 types of spiders. All 10,000 live in Georgia, plus a couple no one has seen before.

If it grows, it sticks. If it crawls, it bites! .

It is not a shopping cart, it is a buggy.

"Fixinto" is one word (I'm fixinto go to the store).

Sweet Tea is appropriate for all meals and you start drinking it when you're 2 years old.

"Jeet?" is actually a phrase meaning "Did you eat?"


Political Correctness

Because of the climate of political correctness now pervading America, Kentuckians, Tennesseeans and West Virginians will no longer be referred to as "HILLBILLIES". You must now refer to them as APPALACHIAN-AMERICANS.

More Tips for Northerners Moving South

  • Save all manner of bacon grease. You will be instructed later how to use it.
  • After five years you will still hear, "You ain't from 'round here, are ya?"
  • If you forget a Southerner's name, refer to him (or her) as "Bubba". You have a 75% chance of being right.
  • Just because you can drive on snow and ice does not mean we can. Stay home the two days of the year it snows.
  • If you do run your car into a ditch, don't panic. Four men in the cab of a four wheel drive with a 12-pack of beer and 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.
  • If it can't be fried in bacon grease, it ain't worth cooking, let alone eating.
  • Remember: "Y'all" is singular. "All y'all" is plural. "All y'all's" is plural possessive.
  • Get used to hearing, "You ain't from around here, are you?"
  • People walk slower here.
  • Don't be worried that you don't understand anyone. They don't understand you either.
  • The first Southern expression to creep into a transplanted Northerner's vocabulary is the adjective "Big ol'", as in "big ol' truck" or "big ol' boy". Eighty-five percent begin their new southern influenced dialect with this expression. One hundred percent are in denial about it.
  • The proper pronunciation you learned in school is no longer proper.
  • Be advised: The "He needed killin'" defense is valid here.
  • If attending a funeral in the South, remember, we stay until the last shovel of dirt is thrown on and the tent is torn down.
  • Don't be surprised to find movie rentals and bait in the same store.
  • If you hear a Southerner exclaim, "Hey, y'all, watch this!" stay out of his way. These might be the last words he will ever say.
  • Most Southerners do not use turn signals, and they ignore those who do. In fact, if you see a signal blinking on a car with a southern license plate, you may rest assured that it was on when the car was purchased.
  • If there is the prediction of the slightest chance of even the most minuscule accumulation of snow, your presence is required at the local grocery store. It does not matter if you need anything from the store, it is just something you're supposed to do.
  • Satellite dishes are very popular in the South. When you purchase one it is to be positioned directly in front of your trailer. This is logical bearing in mind that the dish cost considerably more than the trailer and should, therefore, be displayed.
  • As you are cursing the person driving 15 mph in a 55mph zone, directly in the middle of the road, remember, many folks learned to drive on a model of vehicle known as John Deere, and this is the proper speed and lane position for the vehicle.
  • You can ask a Southerner for directions, but unless you already know the positions of key hills, trees and rocks, you're better off trying to find it yourself.

Only a Southerner...

  • believes that everyone needs two first names: Billy Bob, Jimmy Bob, Mary Sue, Betty Jean, etc.
  • knows the difference between a hissie fit and a conniption fit, and that you don't 'HAVE' them, you 'PITCH' them.
  • knows how many fish, collard greens, turnip greens, peas, beans, etc., make up 'a mess'.
  • can show or point out to you the general direction of "yonder."
  • knows exactly how long "directly" is, as in: 'Gone to town, be back directly'
  • knows exactly when 'by and by' is. They might not use the term, but they know the concept well.
  • knows instinctively that the best gesture of solace for a neighbor who's got trouble is a plate of hot fried chicken and a big bowl of cold potato salad. If it's a real crisis, they also know to add a large peach cobbler!
  • knows the difference between 'right near' and 'a right far piece'. They also know that 'just down the road' can be one mile - or twenty.
  • knows you don't scream obscenities at little old ladies who drive 30 MPH on the freeway. You just say,"Bless her heart" and go on your way.
  • knows that tornadoes and Southerners going through a divorce have a lot in common. In either case, someone's going to lose a trailer.

Southern Girls

  • Southern girls know bad manners when they see them:
    Drinking straight out of a can
    Not sending thank you notes
    Velvet after February
    White shoes before Easter or after Labor Day

A Southern gentleman had a flat tire, pulled off on the side of the road, and proceeded to put a bouquet of flowers in front of the car and one behind it. Then he got back in the car to wait for help. A northerner studied the scene as he drove by and was so curious he turned around and went back. He asked the fellow what the problem was. The man replied,"I have a flat tire." The passerby asked, "But what's with the flowers?" The man responded, "When you break down they tell you to put flares in the front and flares in the back! I never did understand it either."
