20 Things Yankees Should Know When Moving to the South

1) It’s not a check out line; it’s a meet ‘n greet with cashiers.


2) “Bless your heart” is either the nicest mean thing or the meanest nice thing a person can say.


3) If someone asks you about your kids they’re not creepy; they’re nice. Except the guy in the Dickies overalls with a mullet. He’s creepy.


4) If someone is staring at you it’s not a threat or a challenge; they’re just waiting for you to say “hi.”


5) The favorite veggies are mac ‘n cheese, sweet potatoes, sweet potato fries, and mashed potatoes.


6) Honking your car horn is akin to calling someone’s mother an evil name.


7) Waving absolves all driving errors or grievances. Except if they’re with the Dickies/mullet guy.


8) Ever heard of Sunday drivers? In the South, every day is Sunday.


9) The four horsemen of the apocalypse are rain, snow, sleet, and clouds.


10) If you’ve ever heard rumors of “the people of Walmart” those aren’t just rumors; they’re real. And they’re spectacular.


11) Churches are to the South as Starbucks are to Manhattan; there’s one on every corner.


12) If you believe animals go to heaven you’ll love the South. They send chickens to “heaven” by the truckload. Usually fried and spicy.


13) Anything is edible if you fry it.


14) They sell cowboy boots at Target.


15) The “dynasty” in Duck Dynasty is not just for alliteration. Those crazy rednecks rule the southland.


16) All the country songs about pick ups, Cadillacs, and Buicks were inspired by my morning commute.


17) Passive aggressiveness is an art form and the South is a collective Picasso.


18) Wives don’t need to be jealous when waitresses call diners “sugar” or “hon.” Husbands had better be jealous if waiters do the same.


19) Jesus is Sunday’s religion and the SEC is Saturday’s.


20) That man with a gun isn’t a cop and he isn’t a criminal. He’s a ‘Murican citizen.
