1. Okay, this is keeping me interested.
Yes, there are lots of layers and misunderstandings that some folks run with in the wrong direction.

Some non-Southerners seem to get pissed when they come down here when someone at the grocery store says "yes, Mam or Sir." I don't get why they are pissed. It's one of those local things. Go on with your does not mean anything other than the person who said it grew up with those type of manners. It is not a matter of submission to BIG BROTHER, it is simply the way a lot of people here believe you should politely address other people.

But they twist that shit up don't they?
