I love my Southern accent.  People from the outside think they don't have to take you seriously, then...BAM!  You drop the knowledge on them and leave them with their mouths open like what?! :o

;D

Exactly!  I love my Southern accent as well.  It's amazing how people quickly underestimated you because of your accent.

i told them ohio =/= north carolina, let alone alabama. i think some of them were caught off guard when they started meeting southerners. they realized i don't have much of an accent at all.  :D

yo b, i mean burning sands. haha. you know my friends on the east coast used to say i sounded southern. i would ask them if they've ever actually met anyone from the south, and there was silence. the only thing they were comparing me to was juvenile. haha :D

lol

I know right. Being from the midwest, I know a Southern accent when I hear one.  You know those true southern accents that you can only get from Alabama, Mississippi, Florida, etc.  At first, one of my classmates tried to tell me I had a southern accent. I said you obviously haven't been to the south.  Anything that doesn't sound like a NY accent is considered country (aka Southern).  NY'ers idea of going "west" is visiting Jersey.

Yeah cats from Manhattan are the worst. They think Brooklyn is a whole other state.  Remember in sex & the city when Miranda and Steve decided to move to BK?  The rest of them were like, Brooklyn?  Where the hell is Brooklyn?  Do we have to catch a plane to get there?

Its right accross the bridge, geniuses. Just like Jersey.
