I am a born and bred Southern boy who grew up with the concepts of goodwill and hospitality being the norm. Now we have a influx of Northerners that are destroying our way of life. The roads are full of more rude drivers than ever before, my business lines are full of more rude and demanding customers, the stores are full of more anti-social shoppers, and on and on. the Southern hospitality I once knew is being destroyed. I know that it will take a generation before it can be reclaimed as we integrate their children into our way of life, but even my Southern patience is being strained. Now we get posts like the previous one and news of Northerners running over a poor Wal-mart worker to save some money. Please leave the attitudes up North and just learn that our way of living is different.

They have destroyed the northern states with their pollution and rudeness, now they come here to do the same. Then they tell us how they did things up north, Delta is ready when they are and its not soon enough for me.

hi, i am from the north and i really think your sterotyping all northern people as rude, not caring and obnoxious. this is clearly a misconception. yes, i do agree that it is different living in the north compared to the south because i have lived in both areas. however i am origionally from rhode island. however, there are just as many kind, caring and considerate people up north compared to down south. so please stop this whole south against north stuff because we are all americans!

I'm from Louisana and moved up North to VA when I was eight, and I'm in 5th grade now. I'm okay with the adults here, such as my teachers and my friends' parents, but it's the peers that ruin it. They are so stuck up and rude, they make sarcastic, nasty comebacks, and worst of all, they're (mostly) unfair. I once overheard some people spreading lies about me and my friends and when I went to confront them, they said "Mind your own business." How could I mind my own business if they were spreading rumors about me and my friends? Now, don't go saying that it was just that group. I've had many more experiences with rude peers than just these people.
Yeah, some Northerners are nice in general, but most of them are not that bad, although they are more serious than Southern people. I'm sure that it's just the fact that I'm in 5th grade, where everybody is a b**** and your friends can turn on you at any moment if you are not preppy, sarcastic, and dumb.

northern people are a bunch of hippies, liberals, or b*tches. I was born and bred in the south also. i am southern to the bone but not stupid. all these northerners think we are stupid but were not. I mean i got a full scholarship to Vanderbilt in Nashville TN (in case any of you don't know were vanderbilt is). what we say about the northerners is true they just think we are lying because they don't like to face the truth (just like a liberal). I am a republican (if you couldn't tell already). The south is probably the most religous part of the country but the north just doesn't have time to praise the Lord who gave them every joy of their dam lives. I used to go to a school in AL and there were 5 churches within a 2 mile radius. I don't understand why northerners can't just be nice and friendly instead of acting like a ahole. I would just like them to keep their a**es in the North. God forbid I'll ever have to cross the Mason Dickson line. You know those northerners don't even know how to work except on those computers or cell phones. They just think they have to go to a store and fruit, veggie and meat just magically appears. Lord no we put blood sweat and tears into what we do. We have so much pride in our farms and jobs that we are stubborn and won't except charity or donations (suprised aint ya ya northerners). May God help all those northerners that they may find God and change their mind set. I know some northern people are nice and may they stay that way. Bless those southerners who are stuck up there. If you northerners still hates us southerners just listen to a few country songs such as Rain is a Good Thing, Georgia Peaches, Country Must Be Country Wide, I'm from the Country, Hicktown, Dirt Road Antehm, International Harvester, Boondocks, Crazy Town, Big Green Tractor, Songs About Me, This is Country Music, Song of the South, Coal Miners Daughter, Rocky Top, Dixie, Sweet Home Alabama, Ramblin' Man, Devil Went Down to Georgia, Made In America,I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry, The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia, 16 Tons, Southern Nights, Sweet Southern Comfort, If Heaven Ain't A Lot Like Dixie, Redneck Woman, Chatahoochee, Banjo, Louisiana Saturday Night, Country Boy Can Survive, Black Water, Black Velvet, Save a Horse Ride a Cowboy, Rodeo, Playboys of the southwestern world, Redneck Yacht Club, Mud on the Tires, Camoflauge, She thinks my tractor's sexy, family tradition, and Dixieland Delight. See the south is a wonderful place (or why would all these songs be written about it. I don't see any songs about the north) and the north just needs to learn from us good ole Southerners. Ya'll just need to do some major shapin up sweetiepies.

i am sorry for calling northern people hippies, liberals,and b*thces because i know there are some really nice people in the north. i know several kind northerners who have our southern hospitality. some northerners are rude because they have been raised to be wary of outsiders. I am sorry once again because I egg the northerners on to say bad things about the south. But really if your not sure how we live you should really listen to any of those songs. It also wasn't right for me to say there isn't any songs about the norht because what do i know i have never been to the north. that makes me unable to correctly judge how you live. i am really sorry and i hope any of you northerners out there except my sincere apology. Thank you.

Joanne, you are so southern just like me. I was born and raised in NC. You dont need to apologize for how you feel. You are showing your Sweet Southern ways by apologizing for saying how you
