You know you are from Alabama if...

* You measure distance in hours.
* You've ever had to switch from "heat" to "A/C" in the same day.
* Stores don't have bags; they have sacks.
* Stores don't have shopping carts; they have buggies.
* You see a car running in the parking lot at the store with no one in it, no matter what time of the year.
* You use "fix" as a verb. Example: I am fixing to go to the store.
* All the festivals across the state are named after a fruit, vegetable, grain, or animal.
* You install security lights on your house and garage and leave both unlocked.
* You carry jumper cables in your car...for your OWN car.
* You know what "cow tipping" and "snipe hunting" are.
* You only own four spices: salt, pepper, ketchup, and Tabasco.
* You think everyone from a bigger city has an accent.
* You think sexy lingerie is a tee shirt and boxer shorts.
* The local paper covers national and international news on one page but requires 6 pages for sports.
* You think that the first day of deer season is a national holiday.
* You know which leaves make good toilet paper.
* You find 90 degrees F "a little warm."
* You know all four seasons: Almost Summer, Summer, Still Summer, and Christmas.
* You know whether another Alabamian is from southern or northern Alabama as soon as they open their mouth.
* There is a Dairy Queen in every town with a population of 1000 or more.
* Going to Wal-Mart is a favorite past-time known as "goin wal-martin"or off to "Wally World.
* You describe the first cool snap (below 70 degrees) as good chili weather.
* A carbonated soft drink isn't a soda, cola, or pop ... it's a Coke, regardless of brand or flavor
* You understand these jokes and forward them to your friends from Alabama.

Re: You know you are from Alabama if...

And it's definitely Wally World. As far as the accent goes...I moved from what I consider south mississippi to north mississippi, and I can tell a difference in accent. Must be the hills. Yeh..those all apply, and someone from up north just doesn't understand.

i can tell a difference in accents from northern AR, i guess they use more proper english. and your right, northern folk don't understand. I confuse them all the time when they call for an insurance quote because they are moving down here. and i think i piss them off some too when i ask them to repeat themselves, not trying to be rude but i only caught the first two words of the that sentence.

Haha, I have family in Ashflat (Hardy). Eventhough they're from here...they still talk weird and it's funny to make fun of them. Ppl that live as far as Bentonville still sound weird to me lol.

Yeah, I am sure they apply for most southern states. I am guilty of quite a few and I wasn't even born in the South.

Re: You know you are from Alabama if...

Just for comparison of the Deep South with the Far North, I offer my humble and objective observations on the following:



Quote:
* You've ever had to switch from "heat" to "A/C" in the same day.
* You see a car running in the parking lot at the store with no one in it, no matter what time of the year.
* You install security lights on your house and garage and leave both unlocked.
* You carry jumper cables in your car...for your OWN car.
Yep, yep, yep, and yep

Quote:
* You know what "cow tipping" and "snipe hunting" are.
Cow tipping is known in N. New England, but they don't know the pleasures of the snipe hunt.

Quote:
* You only own four spices: salt, pepper, ketchup, and Tabasco.
For many New Englanders, ketchup is about as spicy as you get.

Quote:
* You think that the first day of deer season is a national holiday.
Some think so here; but everyone takes a week off in Feb. to go skiing.

Quote:
* You find 90 degrees F "a little warm."
10 is a bit chilly

Quote:
* You know all four seasons: Almost Summer, Summer, Still Summer, and Christmas.
Here we have Winter, Real Winter, Spring, Mud, Leaf, and Autumn. Summer is on July 9th, 11AM-1PM, if the Sun is shining.

Quote:
* There is a Dairy Queen in every town with a population of 1000 or more.
NH state RSA 45003:23 states that every population center of 50 persons or more must have at least 1 Dunkin Donuts with a drive through.
