25 Ways To Annoy A Yankee

1.

Take your own sweet time when doing ANYTHING.
2.

Pronounce all one-syllable words with two.
3.

When giving directions, finish with "it's right down yonder on the left."
4.

Talk REAL slow, and ask them to speak more slowly so you can understand what they're saying.
5.

When they talk nostalgically about the North, tell 'em "Delta's ready when you are!"
6.

Talk loudly and often about SEC football or ACC basketball.
7.

Refer to every soft drink as a Coke.
8.

Always order sweet tea and/or grits. When they don't have it, raise a ruckus.
9.

Offer to send 'em a bottle of fresh air.
10.

Insist on being addressed by your first AND middle names. (e.g. Lisa Marie -- John Michael -- Jim Bob. . .)
11.

Frequently bring up "The War of Northern Aggression" in conversation. If anyone ever says the words "Civil War", always interject that "there was nothing civil about it."
12.

Address all males as "son" and females as "little lady".
13.

Correct their pronunciation of certain words. For example: It's "pee-can."
14.

Put Tabasco on everything.
15.

For New York Yankees: Act as if the whole state of New York is New York City. In other words, if they say "Yo, I'm from upstate New Yoik!", say , "Well I'll be, my wife has always wanted to see a Broadway show!"
16.

When invited to dinner, offer to bring dessert. Show up with a box of Moon Pies - banana ones.
17.

Name all of your children "Bubba".
18.

Use the word "reckon" in a sentence.
19.

"Mash" buttons. "Cut" off lights. "Carry" the kids to school. "Fetch" something.
20.

Never simply "do" something. Be "fixin to do" something.
21.

Tell them you don't have an accent, they do.
22.

Be sure to include "yes/no ma'am/sir" in all conversations.
23.

Only use landmarks and ramble on when giving directions. "Now go down Jeff Davis Highway and turn left at where the Chevron station used to be. I think they turned it into a Amoco or maybe a BP. Anyway, turn right there."
24.

Ask them if it's still snowing up North. Then tell 'em you went driving around in your convertible this weekend.
25.

Call 'em a Yankee. Works every time.

You're right that is anoying! It's kind of funny that intelligent people think New York is just city. It's the third biggest dairy state, and the top producer of apples.

I do most of those 25 things naturally except I do know the difference between Upstate NY and Sodom & Gomorrah. I had plenty of ancestors that came from Upstate NY and the better parts of PA, and they left brothers & sisters behind so I know that there has to be some good blood in that neck of the woods somewhere.
