Tips for Travelling in the South

This is one of the funniest (and truest) things I’ve seen in a while: Tips for Travelling in the South (via monokinetic).

13) Don’t ridicule our Southern manners. We say sir and ma’am. We hold doors open for others. We offer our seats to old folks because such things are expected of civilized people. Behave yourselves around our sweet little gray-haired grandmothers or they’ll kick some manners into your ass just like they did ours.

If you are not a native Southerner, and plan to visit our lovely lands, you might want to read all 15 tips in order to avoid any potential ass-kickings.

    Well, since my best friend’s name is Tammy Lynn, I must agree that these 15 tips would be most useful to any foreigner (i.e., “fereigner”, i.e., “You ain’t from around here, are ya?”) visiting the good old South! However, I must point out that you should eat your biscuits not only with gravy, but that it should be red-eye
    gravy
    if you really want to be correct (and have a delicious breakfast, too).

    Funnily, most of these could be applied to someone from northern germany visiting bavaria (which is in the south); seems like some things are global.
