You know y'all're from the south when a word can have two apostrophes and still make perfect sense.
@Pubmarine Shamwich, shouldn't've
@MisterJay, or Lancaster County, Pennsylvania
@The Puppet Man, I was just gonna say that. I'm your neighbor from a few counties over.
@Gollum Fetish, then I'm sure you've met some of the hics I live near lol. Funny thing is I use some of this language, I'm just not a redneck.
@The Puppet Man, Oh, I use all of it. And I'm about 90% redneck. How do you pronounce the word synonymous with stream?
@Gollum Fetish, I say creek. I know some ppl say crick cuz my best friend does. But she also says water like "wuter"
@The Puppet Man, I say "crick," but not "wuter." Is it a vacuum or a sweeper?
@Gollum Fetish, vacuum. When I think sweeper I think the skinny mops from swiffer.
@The Puppet Man, Luckily we don't have to stop for horses and buggies too often here. Just cows on the road.
@Gollum Fetish, horses and buggies drive me crazy. Especially when I'm coming home from my Saturday night shift (so it's Sunday morning) and they're fvcking EVERYWHERE.
@The Puppet Man, Sounds like you need to move out of Lancaster 😂
@MisterJay, Other languages do it, why not English?
@Pubmarine Shamwich, That's two words, pardner
@MisterJay, As someone who dated a girl from Tennessee, I can confirm
@MisterJay, ha that's nothing. There's a word somewhere in Moby Dick that has four goddamn apostrophes! Four!! I don't remember what is was, but I remember having to re read it a couple times to figure out what in the heck he was trying to say.
@MisterJay, you should look into some old English/ other languages. They're a hoot
@MisterJay, y'all'd've is still my favorite
As a man from Alabama I can confirm...that this is not accurate.
@Sandaimei, also as a man from Alabama, I say it depends. When I visit my grandparents in the country, this is about how it goes. One finger for a stranger, two for an acquaintance, whole hand for family/close friends. In the city lol WTF are you doing put your fingers down.
@Spilled Milk, as a man from Alabama, we wave to everyone, and everyone waves back. I've never seen people just give a single finger unless I cut them off.
*pointer, middle and pinkie finger* "How's yer sis this morn?"
Apparently "entire hand" no longer includes the pinkie finger. Poor pinkie.
Freaking damn, I hate the South.
Y'all'd've known this already if you've been to the south.
That last one I have heard, but only from a white lady making an inside joke. She was being kind of racist. :/
Here in the south that's chunk deuce
