Things Southerners Are Really Picky About. PART ONE!
We are an easy-going people—until we’re not. The truth is that Southerners have more
regional “this is how it’s done” rules than most.
It is still not okay to skip the RSVP or the thank-you note. (Infants and toddlers may have their mothers write Memaw and thank her for the teddy bear.) Men and boys should always open doors for women and girls. It is not old-fashioned. It is respectful. From the moment they can approximate language, children should be taught to say “yes, ma’am; no, ma’am; yes, sir; and no sir.” We respect our elders down here. Also, the young’uns should be taught not to call adults by their first names. If their relationship is formal or distant, use “Mr. Anderson” or “Mrs. Johnson.” If the relationship is close and affectionate, add “Miss” or “Mr.” to the adult’s first name: Miss Kathy, Mr. David, etc.
We choose carefully when it comes to houses of worship. Many Southerners fall into one of two church camps: traditional or contemporary. Contemporary worshippers are fine with jeans on Sunday morning, and you can expect some serious amplification during the praise music. There will be drums. And a big projection screen with the song lyrics so that worshippers’ hands are free to clap along with the music. Traditional people . . . not so much. They want their hymnals in hand so that nobody expects them to clap. Clapping makes them nervous. They consider a piano and organ (with occasional chamber ensemble for special occasions) all that’s Biblically required for services. They want an Easter dress—with proper shoes and handbag. Also, they have a regular pew—and it’s their pew. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! Have a WONDERFUL WEDNESDAY people, stay safe, and whatever you do, don’t forget to laff it up! Peace, I am outta here! Eucman! 😁

“Sugar why don’t you sit down by the table and we’ll start supper.” Said Dorothy to her Husband of 50 years. “Sure thing,” said her husband settling himself down. “Now darling, would you like the soup first or the salad?” Questioned Dorothy. “Umm I guess I’ll take the soup.” He responded. After a whole meal of one endearing term after another, their guest Bob couldn’t contain his curiosity any longer. Bob snuck into the kitchen and asked, “Dorothy do you always talk to your husband like that?” “Bob, I’ll be honest with you,” Dorothy replied. “It’s been five years now, I just can’t remember his name, and I am just too embarrassed to ask him!”😳
