86. Another example
I grew up in NYC and now live in Texas. My mom came down to visit and we were next in line in a grocery store.

The person before us had eggs. The checker told him the bigger size eggs were cheaper. She started telling him where the bigger eggs were and then said, never mind, I'll get them, and the checker went and got the eggs leaving us next in line. When the checker came back, my mom actually had to tell her in a low voice that she shouldn't have left the line of people to get that guy eggs. She talked about it for the whole week how the people down here are so slow, she just left us in line to get this guy eggs.

I had to keep telling her that it is something she may learn to appreciate about the south if she lived here. It bothered me for the first few years too, but now I kind of appreciate it.
