Coworker moving south

    One of my coworkers is moving from the north to the red, red south and I'm looking for some quality advice to impart on them. Aside from saluting the confederate flag, saying "get er done" far too much and staying the heck our of hazzard county, what other advice should I sent their way?

    Don't be a douchebag about living the South or look down your nose at Southerners. Relax and enjoy the experience.

    (And that's the same type of advice I'd give to a Southerner moving to NYC.)

    Open minded much?

    It would be kinda helpful to know a little more specifically where this damn Yankee will land your friend is moving to. There tend to be slight differences between, say, Atlanta, Charleston, Shreveport, Dothan and Clarksdale.

    Why is it that I see co-worker in a thread title and immediately look for Boots' name?

    Don't ask Mizzou for advice on dealing with the South

    Yep, that pretty much sums it up.

    And don't ask for a "pop," or you just might get one – in the kisser.

    No self-respecting Southerner eats instant grits. Waffle House grits are disgusting, too. With that in mind, I have no clue.

    Oh yeah, and make sure to use air quotes when discussing/debating "states' rights."

    - Avoid saying "y'all" in an attempt to maintain a northern accent
    - Make sure there's room for a gun rack inside the car
    - Enjoy the experience and hospitality of the south

    Thanks for the help. Nothing against Southerners ... just looking for a few funny things to send their way.

    Nice call on the grits.

    enjoy the sweet tea. It's a staple at many restaurants.

    There was a good question above. Where exactly are they going? It makes a big difference. Big city or small? Even among the big cities, you will find big differences -- say, between Atlanta and New Orleans.
