You Might Be A Redneck...



As a Southern girl married to a man who has lived all over the entire country and puts the South towards the top of his "unappealing" list (I know, what the hell was I thinking!) I have often heard the statement, "please don't ever tell that story again, it makes you sound like such a redneck."  Well sweetie, I hate to break it to you, but not only did you marry a redneck, but that redneck blood is now running through your baby boys veins too!!  I'm not talking broken down car sitting on the front lawn redneck, but a mild redneck, a redneck that stems from occasional memories that drive him insane.  So I share these examples with you now, redneck, or just damn funny??

You might be a redneck if:

high school students drove your school bus. People almost never believe me when I share this, but high school students did in fact drive my bus up until I was in middle school.  It was some type of work release program for them.  To prove this fact I have a picture taken at my best friend's house with the bus her older brother drove parked in their front yard.  He used to come home and sweep off all the cigarette butts (yep, even more redneck!)

you've ever started a sentence with, "One time at a wresting match.."  No, I'm not talking high school sport wrestling, I'm talking Nature Boy Ric Flair, The American Dream Dusty Rhodes, and my personal favorites The Rock n' Roll Express!  I was addicted as a young girl and when the NWA came through town you best believe I was there.

you know people who actually fill their coolers with beer to bring into the living room during a NASCAR race so they won't miss any of the action by getting up and going to the fridge.  And don't even ask what they do if they need to go to the bathroom.

your prom date had a mustache. My brother-in-law noticed my prom picture in the living room while he and my sister were dating (it has since been removed) and could not believe my date had a mustache.  He was even more shocked when he heard this date was actually in my grade, not some old man I found on the side of the road.

"shop" was a class requirement at your High School.  At least Auto Mechanics was optional.

when you hear gunshots from next door you don't call 911.  No reason too, you know its just the neighbor hoping to hit a few squirrels.

you can even remotely relate to where I'm coming from!

  2. Hahah. Love the prom date with the mustache. I can't say I can relate to this because I'm from the north (waaay North, as in Canada), but we have our own embarrassing stereotypes...

  3. I'm not from the south-south (Florida doesn't count) but I spent some time in GA., and can relate to your post. Excellent write-up to bring on the smiles. :)

  4. These are great! My town was so small, that everyone rode on the same bus, from elementary all the way through high school. It took forever to get to get back and forth from school! :D

  10. I can't really relate to much, but shop was a required class (and I'm thankful since I can work more power tools than my hubby can!). We learned to shoot rifles in high school as part of PE class and even had a shooting range in the high school basement. Unfortunately, the gunshots we heard outside were the drugged out neighbor kids messing around....

  11. LOL. Love it! And I thought I grew up in a 'redneck' area. So funny. I'd love it if you could link up tomorrow to Weekend Blog Walk at http://www.athometake2.blogspot.com. We have lots of great blogs linking up and hopping.

  12. What is it with all of the upity people? We had shop too in AZ, which is the Southwest, close with the gun toting, but no NASCAR. We still have rodeos, and the kids get out of school for Rodeo only here in Tucson every year. I like the personality and charm of the South, and don't most of our Presidents come from there?
