Especially when they move in and are still getting use to it. Me with my traveling especially in Calif people would stop, smart smiling ask me where I was from. Like my signature, Yall come now,,, ya hear. I"m ate up with the Carolina slang. Don't bother me , everyone is Around here. ( Thats another word we leave the A off it in this area.) I do the shit most of you won't do and has to do with personal image , like riding a stuff tiger on the back of a totally tricked out custom built Harley thats in built to the gill. Have a lot more power on that bike than 98% thats another image some love to have in the Harley world I'm not fond of. . 100 outside whole crowd I ride with has big Harley boots, jeans, playing the part I'm in shorts, white sneekers. and a beach fishing shirt. If its crazy and off the wall, I'm in.!! We call it a hoot here in Carolina. Someone that has not done to shabby is a nut and damn sure does their own thing.
Funny but have any of you seen one person mentioned phone ver typing on a computer. ? Big hands tiny keyboard, Hell I got to resend shit sometimes I can't even read it. LOL Its all fun and funny to me but some have their panties in such a wad it offends them . Were really starting to understand those folks just coming out the closet that everything offends them now days arn't we. YEP, same bunch just want everything or think eveything should be just like they think it should be. Bless their hearts. LOL and Yall know what that means in Carolina right? LOL Iffins, show nuffs, pert near, round instead of around, all those words that drive those offended office type of folks nuts is our daily language "round" here. Think about something. Would me talking different cause me to catch less fish? Don't put money on it buddy. All I got to say. If your car quits, most on here know me, I'm sure you would not mind me under your hood!! might be a chance I'll get us going on your boat to if that same issues "rears its head" Most boring job in the world to me is one you have to show up to the same office or place every day, clock in doing the same thing day after day, and having to deal with others when it drives you crazy some can't spell in the e mails your getting. When they,,,, "Rear their head" I don't get offended I get tickled. You ever go to a boat landing in the city and watch those folks back? Va Beach comes to mind. I've gotten out offered to help and they were tickled to death to let me. Got that deer in the head light look about them stick a fork in them, their done. Been done. I was their knight in shinning armor. LOL
Its not that they ain't smart they just don't know how to do a whole lot of things. AKA don't catch on quick to things most of us get in one or two times stuff they don't do on a daily basis. Call them cubicle or office folks. So sometime the hunter becomes the hunted when that shoe is on that other foot and folks sure have a way of stepping in it and that shit don't shake off easy. LOL
Lord knows I could go on and on about stuff like why folks move into HOAs then bitch, cry about city taxes and shit going on in their city yet where they living. LMAO.
Just cause someone knows where to put a period, don't make you a smart person. Especially when you come out that cubicle or office and have to be "round" us other folks that now get to watch you back and dock that boat. . LOL
Be nice to everyone. Its a show nuff way to win at everything and you don't end up looking like the fool at everything else. .
Dang Bo!! Got yer Cummings deezall all fir'ed up!!! Great post!!!!

“I seen” is bad. Have two coworkers that say it all the time in professional settings,

These two are technically correct but are unnecessarily complicated,

”conversate”. I like to sit around and conversate. Just say converse.

”orientated”.
I was lost and had to get re-orientated Why not use re-oriented?

People that write LOL constantly, It makes you sound like a 12 year old girl.

Grew up in PA. I've had friends and roommates from Philly and the Burgh. Both distinctive and fun.


Edit: I used to watch the Steelers but turn down the volume and listen to Myron.

To much chair time. LOL

Growing up in South East NC farming worked with a lot of people that dropped out of school, but would work. Put a add in the paper two weeks ago knew I was going to landscape my whole yard, needing help with yard work where the 445 tractor could not reach. Paying cash, good money. Hard physical work. Had 8 folks answer the add, even double booked last Saturday. Not the first one made it the following morning after saying they would be here the night before. Finally got one boy to come in wed worked his ass off. I"ll use that boy again.

My uncle built a hell of a business. Foster Fuels centered in Brookneal VA. High school education only , extreamly smart man. . Yall in that area have probley fuled there, Brookneal lynchburg area, middle VA.

Smart and book sense are two totally different worlds. Know guys that own boats I drull over, they hit everything around them or have someone else get in on and off the trailer. Loads of money, not the first lick of common sense. LOL Docking. O MY GOD. Its run forrest run when they coming into a dock. LOL Guy not to far from me has a high end boat. Scares him to death to pull it behind his truck. He use to offer to take me for free if I would use my truck to get it to OI. Man is a millionaire x 2. Owns his own business. I"m sure he spells perfect.

For those that work on computers e mailing and texting in the business world all day long its important and its reconized. To you anyway. LOL Just never put yourself in a place you can't dig yourself out of. Thats one thing ver 10,000 that other person might make you look stupid at. Thats when it really hits home.
I think what you are saying is there is a difference between educated and intelligent. I agree. Just because you did not go to college does not mean you are not smart. There are also different types of intelligence; book smarts and street smarts. They are not mutually exclusive as you can have both. Which is more valuable depends on who you talk to and what you are referring to. Either can be useful for making a decent living, but there is a correlation between book smarts intelligence, education and financial success. Some level of street smarts comes in handy though. Balance is the key. Dumb is dumb though. Life can be tough if you are dumb. So, I hear.

. . .
. Lock and Load. . .
You pert near nailed it.
Ya I have fun turning the lango up and if were gona get picked on for it might as well have some fun with it.
Doing what I do for a living, most look down on it but like most things media has played it to the hill and thats ok most never take the time to understand it either. . There again its that image thing. One group thinks because they can do one thing better it makes them a smarter person when I'd bet some have to have the wife fold their underware for them. Same with the grammar and spelling and these threads pop up in every kinda forum from cars to home decor. You'll remember that thread years ago, lets see your back yards. Theres some real money on this forum. Homes in the 2 and 3 million..... I liked homsite, he had fun with everyone on here but I understood how they thought. He loved to get folks going , 95 % of the ones on here never knew that. They just hated him cause he knew how to get under their skin and O lord he could do that well. . . LOL
He might of had to get someone to drive that monster of a boat in that race in Fla but know what, he had my respect for being able to afford those toys and that stable. Boy was living large. .
He was good in his world just not so good in ours. LMAO.
All kinda angles to everything like street smart, book smart, and knowledge that white collar don't have a clue about and you did "PERT NEAR" nail it in what you said Lock and load. LIke car racing. You never bet anything till you see whats under that other guys hood. Getting that ass handed back to you , with your tail tucked between your legs is a tough row to hoe after talking smack. . Same with how someone talks or you catch a word or two they spell wrong. That man might can take every toy you ever ownd, drive it harder, faster and better than you ever dreamed of , rebuild your house, let him borrow the wife return her with new life to the wife. Careful what you say to others . Theres always someone faster, and better at doing everything any of us "think" we have a handle on. When you call someone out on one thing thats when your really fixing to get your rear handed back to you on most all the others.
